Leased Lines

Private, high performance internet connection

Is your broadband holding your business back?

A drop in internet service, or loss of connectivity can hugely impact the operations of your business and have a negative impact. A solution to prevent this occurring is changing to a leased line. Leased lines carries voice, data and internet traffic along your own dedicated pipe to the internet.

What is a leased line?

A leased line is a dedicated, fixed-bandwidth, symmetric data connection.

Leased lines are ‘dedicated’ this means that along the route of your leased line, the bandwidth you need has been reserved solely for your use – you don’t share it with anyone else so there is no drop in speed or bandwidth.

How does this differ to other internet connections? At peak times of the day, do you notice a drop in internet speed when more users are online? With a leased line this doesn’t happen as the only users on your line are within your business and your line has a dedicated, fixed-bandwidth data connection.

If your business eats data then Leased lines will provide you with a reliable internet connection with guaranteed upload and downloads speeds because you, the business are directly ‘leasing’ the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and not sharing it with other businesses or users making sharing data and uploads easily and quickly.

What is difference between leased line and broadband?

Broadband is a contended network, meaning you share your connection with several other users. Which can reduce your speed at peak times when there are more users online at the same time.

Leased lines use an uncontended network (a contention ratio of 1:1, being used by only one organisation). There is nobody using this except you, so your connection won’t be slowed down by other users in the area. 

Which is better Leased Line or Broadband? 

That is not a simple question to answer, it will depend on your circumstances and what type of internet connection you require. Both Broadband and Leased Lines will give you an internet connection it’s fundamentally a matter of do you want reliable, guaranteed upload and download speeds or an internet connection that won’t drop out during important online meetings and video calls? If you do then Leased Lines will do this however the costs are higher to deliver you a dedicated line that you don’t share with anyone.

If business costs are something you are keeping an eye on then Broadband might be a more preferrable answer as the costs are significantly reduced but you are then sharing your connection with other business and this will affect the upload / download speeds especially at peak times.

Ultimately you need to establish how much you rely on the internet for your business and what level of connection you need to operate. To discuss your options and answer any questions you have please contact us on on 01226 704 610 or at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.
