What is a leased line?

A leased line is a permanent, dedicated high performance telecommunications network connection which can carry voice, data and Internet traffic via a copper or fibre optic connection between a customer site and a Point of Presence (POP).

A leased line is a permanent, dedicated high performance telecommunications network connection which can carry voice, data and Internet traffic via a copper or fibre optic connection between a customer site and a Point of Presence (POP).

Leased lines are ideal if your business uses or want to implement a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

With a leased line, you always have access to 100% of your line capacity - this means that if you purchase a 10Mbps leased line, then 100% of the time, 24x7 you get 10Mbps of bandwidth. We can quote you for 100MB on 1Gig Bearer and advise you what capacity you are likely to need.

A leased line is inherently secure in its own right because it operates as a point to point service. However, if a connection is provided to the Internet, additional security services will need to be implemented such as firewalls.

67% of companies believe that their growth is being actively held back by networks unable to scale with their business; we can provide you with the right option

70% suggest the rise in modern working trends (such as BYOD) has placed increased pressure on their network performance-using a GB network will allow you headroom to grow if you need to

74% think they would be able to deliver better customer service with a change in how their network operates, so with the cost of leased lines dropping now is a good time to revisit this option

Our Leased Line and Ethernet customers are covered by a 100% SLA. If your service is unavailable at any stage, you are entitled to service credits as compensation.
