There are different types of Leased Lines, a little information about them.
Available across the UK, Fibre Ethernet offers a dedicated and symmetrical bandwidth service delivered on uncontended fibre access at speeds from 10Mb up to 10Gb, all backed up by our industry leading SLA’s. Ethernet bandwidth can be increased quickly and easily in line with your customer’s emerging business needs.
EFM – Ethernet in the First Mile
EFM is ideal for customers looking for an alternative solution to Fibre Ethernet or ADSL, who need an uncontended service and symmetrical bandwidth. The service is delivered at speeds of up to 30Mb. EFM is delivered over bonded copper pairs to the customer’s premises, which makes it a highly cost- effective and resilient alternative to fibre-based Ethernet solutions, and with shorter lead time than Fibre Ethernet. EFM is ideal for customers needing a quick installation or who have problems with fibre access to their premises.
CloudHance’s ADSL solution is business-grade, offering download speeds of up to 24Mb with quick and efficient implementation. ADSL is most commonly used as a backup service.
EoFTTC – Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet
EoFTTC is provided over a single copper pair from your business premises over the short distance to the green cabinets in the street. Unlike standard broadband where the copper then continues all the way to the exchange, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet traffic travels across a shared fibre optic circuit to the exchange. As a result, the extra distance doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation
of performance, which allows access to an uncontended, symmetrical service of up to 20Mb with fixed service SLA’s. Coverage can be limited, and can be more limited than Broadband FTTC as not only do the cabinets need to be enabled but the exchanges must also be an Ethernet node in the supplier’s network.
Offering download speeds of up to 80Mb, and uploads of up to 20Mb. This is the next step
up from ADSL. By using the same underlying technology of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) it is offered as reduced cost alternative by being a contended service, so can be impacted at peak times and by other internet users in the area. Able to support a single CloudHance service, such as Internet or SIP. For the application of multiple services, you will need an EoFTTC service or better. As with EoFTTC, coverage can be limited, although it is more widely available than EoFTTC.
