Business Telecoms Can Be A Confusing Place


We don’t think it should be so we’ve included a list of products and services below with a simple breakdown of what they are and how they can benefit your business.

If you feel that these can benefit you or your business give us a call and we can help you understand fully what you need.

Internet Connectivity:

Broadband

Business broadband (Also known as ADSL) is all you need for email access and internet browsing (as long as you don’t use a lot of data or need particularly fast transfer speeds). Price range £15-£30 per month

Fiber broadband

You’ll need  business fiber broadband (Also known as VDSL) to use cloud applications, video-conferencing, and to transfer large data files quickly. Price range £30 – £60 per month
Requires a phone line (usually)

Lease Line

If you want a dedicated internet access service beyond business broadband, with guaranteed upload and download speeds, take a look at a Leased Line. It’s like having your very own pipe, capable of carrying enormous amounts of data.

As you don’t share the bandwidth with anyone else, you get complete control over it: flex your bandwidth in line with seasonal demands and only pay for what you need.

With symmetric speed choices ranging from 2Mbps to 30Mbps (Ethernet First Mile – EFM), 35Mbps (Generic Ethernet Access – GEA), and 10Gbps (Ethernet fibre), plus resilience options, a leased line is ideal for businesses where internet access is critical. Price range £150+
