“There was excellent communication from the provisioning team during the installation process. I knew exactly what day and time an engineer would arrive. The whole process was a breath of fresh air. I have found the connection speed to be the best I have ever experienced.”

Clive Wall – General Manager – Exception Var Ltd (A Fineline Company)

Benefits

A leased line service is dedicated to your business. This means that your business is not competing for bandwidth, as with other services like standard copper or fibre broadband. You can be absolutely certain that if you have purchased a 100Mbps leased line, then 100Mbps will be available for you to use. This is particularly important when you have bandwidth dependant applications like VOiP, cloud applications or a sizable user base.

Service Guarantees

A leased service is backed by stringent service guarantees. These guarantees cover features such as speed, availability, jitter, latency and packet loss. If the service provider does not meet the service level agreement (SLA) there are severe implications. The service provider can be forced to pay financial penalties. You can even terminate the agreement if necessary.

Upload & Download Speeds Are The Same

Leased line services have the same upload speed as download speed. This is called a symmetrical or synchronous bandwidth connection. There are several benefits of this symmetry:

  1. If remote users are accessing HQ hosted applications and content. They can download to, and access these HQ located services much faster and without drop outs.
  2. FTP and other remote web services have a far higher level of performance.
  3. It is quick to send and upload large files, CAD technical drawings, graphic designs etc

Upgrade & Downgrade Bandwidth Capacity Conveniently

Some  providers offer the ability to upgrade and downgrade the capacity on a circuit with short notice. BTnet for example allow a bandwidth upgrade or downgrade with 72 hours notice. This means if your business is operating on a 20Mbps service over a 100Mbps bearer, you could increase to 30Mbps without requiring  a fresh installation.

Unlimited Usage

Leased line fibre does not have a usage cap on the data transferred over the circuit each month. The service is truly unlimited and there are no fair usage policies.

Some suppliers insist that you use a managed router. This can be inflexible and expensive as a monthly fee is applied to the managed router service. Other providers can provide what is known as a “wires only” service. This means that your business provides the router to connect to the end of the leased line service.
If you need a latency service level agreement (SLA) to ensure your internet has low latency then you will need to buy a leased line circuit. Latency based SLAs are available. The SLA is usually measured between the core routers on the service provider’s network. 20-30 milliseconds is industry standard.
Our customers have decided that speed and availability of bandwidth are critical to their operation. You pay more for a leased line for these features. But things do go wrong. When they do you need to know you can call your supplier whenever you need to. This is why suppliers offer support by phone, and email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 365 days a year.
Static IP addresses are required for you to operate certain services. For example, you own email server, remote worker VPN, self hosted web servers. Usually you receive a block of 4 static IP addresses.

If you have a requirement for more static IP addresses then this can usually be accommodated. A justification for IP addresses is usually required.

Most providers provide an online web portal specific to your service. This can show you uptime statistics, usage of the connection over time and much more. Often this service also allows you to raise a support ticket and handle any moves and changes.

Why Use A Price Comparison Service For Leased Lines

What is a leased line comparison service?

LeasedLines.org is similar to GoCompare but for business leased lines. Firstly, you provide your location. Secondly, the speed of service you require. Thirdly, whether you need a single line to the internet, or a multi site network. Finally your contact details for the comparison pricing report. You then receive competitive bids for your specific need.

Can you save using a leased line comparison service?

Typically you will save between 25% and 35% by using a comparison service. The reasons the savings are so high is due to several factors. Firstly the large comparison sites have deep discount facilities with the major operators. This is because of the significant volume of spend that they hold. For the large sites the volumes can be £millions of leased line contracts per month. These savings are passed on to you.

Secondly your requirement is bid against competitively. o it is entirely possible 5 or 6 operators could be bidding for your requirement at your location. The competitive nature of the buying process drives buying prices down for you the buyer.

Multiple Options

There are different types of leased line to suit every business’ need.

Fibre offers a powerful combination of reliability and performance. This can come at an expensive rental fee. It is necessary to have fibre optic cable run into your office. There can be considerable installation fees including excess construction costs.

Generic Ethernet Access, (GEA), is a cost effective ethernet based service. The service offers symmetrical speeds of up to 20Mb download and 20Mb upload.  The service uses an FTTC enabled exchange and cabinet. Copper is used for the last mile. The bandwidth then switches onto fibre to the exchange. It then passes over the GEA network. By using the existing UK copper network to access businesses, rental and install costs and lead times are vastly lower than traditional fibre based leased lines.

EFM is for some businesses an ideal combination of speed and reliability. EFM leased lines use twisted copper pairs. This has several benefits. Firstly resilience, in the form of multiple copper circuits. Secondly cost, as copper can be used to your customer premises negating the need for fibre installation fees. Thirdly, speed as lead times for EFM can be much quicker without the need to install fibre cable.

FTTP offers a mix of Generic Ethernet Access and Fibre to the Premises (GEA-FTTP) technology. The speed capability is significant, up to 330Mb download and 30Mb upload. FTTP is available to businesses who have access to a FTTC access. Fibre is pulled from the FTTC cabinet to provide the GEA/FTTP bandwidth.
