Leased Lines

Overview

So what is this type of internet service and is it the best out there in the UK for data connectivity? What sort of high speeds are available? How long does it take to get one installed? What size would i need to suit my business?

In short, a leased line is quite simply the best, most resilient internet connection there is. We will cover the benefits of having one as well as look at the negatives.

If this is your first look into the leased line marketplace then be assured, if you have any type of internet connection requirement for your office this is the product you need.

What Is A Leased Line?

“A leased line offers a totally uncontended connection. It’s a dedicated line which you share with nobody, with bandwidth availability ranging from 10Mb to 10Gb with speeds that are totally symmetrical and offering reliability that easily surpasses any internet packages on the market”

It also come with a 100% target SLA (service level agreement), totally unlimited usage, the ability to upgrade your bandwidth, a managed router plus 24/7 support 365 days a year. It really is the ultimate cost effective business solution.

The nearer you are to a town or city, the more chance there will be of a successful install. The vast majority of the UK is covered but there will always be a few problem areas.

If you live in the middle of a field surrounded by nothing then you can still get one BUT there will be the potential for huge extra charges but these will not be identified until a site survey has taken place.

At this point and if the charges are too high, you can simply cancel and explore other options. We take every case individually so sometimes if there are excess charges, instead of having to pay the lump sum up front we can add it on to your monthly rental over the term of your contract which gives us a lot more flexibility than the majority of providers in the UK.

Leased Lines FAQ's

  • number 1

    Why Do I Need A Leased Line?

    Leased lines are the ultimate in internet connectivity luxury. They are always on, offer lightning fast speeds, and are totally uncontended so not shared with anybody else. The line is private and dedicated to you. It also offers 24/7 support 365 days a year.

  • number 2

    What Can I Use The Line For?

    The main uses for them are connecting to the internet (do not compare this to broadband – it’s a whole different connection!), running VoIP (Voice over IP) for all your telephony needs, link together office pc’s in different locations, enable remote workers to log in and work from home. These are just a few examples.

  • number 3

    What Is The Install Time?

    The lead time across the whole of the UK from any provider is 65-75 working days on average or in other words, around 3 months. If all goes according to plan and no additional work is required then this time period is easily achievable. If however, additional works are required then obviously that time period can change and delays can happen which are completely out of our control.

    Yes absolutely.They are a completely private circuit so you share your bandwidth with nobody. It’s also a totally unlimited service which means you can upload and download as much data as you wish without the speeds slowing down or being capped.

    How Fast Can They Go?

    As fast as you want them to go! With speeds ranging from 10Mb right the way up to 10Gb, there is a speed suitable for every business of every size whether you’re an SME or large corporate. The most common speed in the UK at the moment is 100Mb. Over the next few years and due to the demand in modern day industries, this will rise to a 1Gb speed being the best selling!

    How Secure Are They?

    This type of technology operates as a point to point service so it’s very secure. However, if the service provided is going out to the internet, you will need additional security services such as firewalls. Please ask for more information or a copy of our policy.

  • number 10

    Can I Use Existing Firewall?

    Most customers firewalls will be totally fine but the best advise here is to let us know what you currently have in place. We can then check for you and confirm.

  • number 11

    Is There A Backup Option?

    Yes, there are several. In the very rare case of your line going “down”, you have the choice of backup options. The first would be to have a standard broadband backup. This is the cheapest option but in all cases, whatever backup line you choose, if the primary line does go down, it will automatically fail over to the backup line so you have an “always on” connection.

  • number 12
