Ethernet based internet connectivity

2nd November 2016

Choosing the right connectivity for your business

In this article we explore Ethernet based internet connectivity. Some of the benefits include:

  • Guaranteed bandwidth  – you’ll get the bandwidth you’re paying for.
  • Uncontended connection – you don’t share your connection with any other premises. You’ll get a 1:1, uncontended connection to the internet.
  • Service Level Agreement – in the unlikely case of a fault occurring, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your connection will be restored within the timeframes agreed.

The newest service to be added to the Ethernet based internet category is EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre To The Cab). EoFTTC is proving to be one of the most cost effective solutions for small businesses who not only need guaranteed speeds, but also a service level agreement to ensure availability.

Our EoFTTC packages uses a fibre broadband service to deliver a business-assured service with a service level agreement.  EoFTTC packages offer guaranteed speeds of 20Mb, with download speeds rising up to 80Mb, dependant on location.

Ethernet based internet connectivity: EFM

EFM (Ethernet in the first mile) is slowly being replaced by EoFTTC, but it still has its place if EoFTTC is not yet available. Service, speed and availability is determined by distance from the exchange.
