What is a Leased Line?

A leased line is a high grade business internet connection that comes with many great features:

  • It is dedicated for your business use with symmetrical speeds
  • It is backed up by service level agreements
  • It is fibre direct to your property with the ability to upgrade the speed as you grow

    Benefits

  • Dedicated for your use

    • With a leased line the service is dedicated to your business. This means the bandwidth is uncontended so purely for your use meaning the speed will not fluctuate during peak times unlike with other services such as standard copper or fibre broadband. You can be guaranteed that if you buy a 100Mbps leased line that you will get 100Mbps available for you to use. This is particularly important when you use bandwidth reliant applications such as VoIP, cloud applications or if you have a sizeable user base.

  • Synchronous Speeds

    • With a leased line you get the same upload speed as download speed. This is also known as symmetrical or synchronous bandwidth. Traditionally the upload speed is much lower than the download speed on standard copper or fibre broadband connections so you will see a vast improvement with synchronous speeds. The upload speed is critical even for web browsing as you have to upload your request to view a website before you can download the website, everything on the internet is a two way conversation with both upload and download required. This is even more critical for applications like VoIP, cloud applications, remote users and enables you to send and upload large files quickly.

  • Unlimited Usage

    • Leased lines do not come with any usage cap, it is a truly unlimited service and there are no fair usage policies.

  • Service Level Agreements

    • 99.999% uptime guarantee – leased lines come with the best service level agreements which cover features such as uptime, speed, availability, jitter, latency and packet loss. Service providers have a matter of hours to fix a circuit in the event of a total failure. If they ever failed to meet these guarantees then they would have to pay financial penalties.

  • FREE managed pass through router or wires only circuits available

    • You can choose between a managed circuit or a wires only circuit. Managed circuits come with free use of a managed pass through router, this also enables 24/7/365 active line monitoring of your circuit to detect any faults instantly so the providers can work on fixing them straight away. You will put your own router on top of this to provide DHCP and a firewall etc. Alternatively you can opt for a wires only circuit where you provide your own router to connect to the end of the leased line.

  • 24/7/365 Support

    • Because a leased line is the best business grade internet service, it comes with the best business grade support. You can contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to report a fault should things go wrong.

  • Multiple Static IP Addresses

    • Static IP addresses are used to operate certain services such as VPNs, email servers etc. Usually you receive a block of 4 Static IP addresses. If you need more you can request this, we will just need a justification for the IP addresses.

  • Fully Managed, Automatic ADSL2+ or FTTC backup available

    • If you need extra redundancy we can provide a fully managed, automatic ADSL2+ or FTTC (if available) backup. These seamlessly failover in the result of your leased line circuit going down also keeping the same IP addresses then automatically switch back to your leased line when this is back up.

  • Dedicated Install Project Manager

    • We have a team of helpful and proactive project managers who will manage your installation for you. We have direct relationships with the suppliers and know who to chase and when to get your circuit installed in the quickest time possible. We will keep you informed every step of the way.
