Products available

All our broadband packages include at least one static IP address, with more available on request - this is critical for many business networks, and often costs extra with most providers.

Fibre-to-the-Cabinet Broadband (FTTC)

Now available in nearly all areas, FTTC broadband services offer downstream speeds of up to 80Mbps and upstream up to 20Mbps.  Costs only slightly more than older ADSL services yet much faster and more reliable.  Unlimited use packages available so you can take full advantage of the peformance without data use worries.  We can also offer FTTC with an SLA and a "speed guarantee"!

Fibre-to-the-Premises Broadband (FTTP)

FTTP provides a 100% fibre optic connection all the way from the telephone exchange to your premises, whereas FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is a Fibre connection to your local on-street cabinet, then a copper connection from the cabinet to your premises.  Speeds of up to 300Mbps downstream and 50Mbps upstream are available!  However, FTTP is currently only available to around 3% of the UK.

ADSL

Where broadband services began!  Widely available ADSL services, with downstream speeds of up to 24Mbps and upstream up to 1.2Mbps.  Various packages available depending on expected usage.

Leased Line

Leased line services provide a dedicated fibre connection to your office, with internet connection speeds from 10Mbps to 1Gbps+.  This is the highest grade of internet connection generally available, with fantastic performance and SLA's available.  Typically chosen by businesses who require a rock solid internet connection and/or performance that far exceeds anything else available to them. 

We can also offer additional services such us point-to-point fibre connections, and private VLAN connections from your office to a data centre (e.g. for backup/DR services with added security & performance).

EFM

Ethernet First Mile (EFM) is a higher grade service, with an SLA designed for business. Bandwidth is uncontended and unlimited, with equal downstream and upstream speeds (symmetric). Performance is dependent partly by geographic location and partly on the package chosen - typically ranges from 4Mbps to 20Mbps.  EFM is not available everywhere, but is a cheaper alternative to fibre based leased line services in many cases.
