Leased Lines the overview
Sometimes, off-the-shelf broadband for civilians just doesn't cut the mustard: as a business, you need something more. Most of us have been there: the painful frustration of an intermittent connection that drops out when you need it most. Leaving large files to (hopefully) transfer over night. No sign of the advertised speeds that promised to accelerate your day. And what about the all important question of security?
With our leased line solutions (sometimes known as "private circuits"), you get what you pay for.
It really is as simple as it sounds: guaranteed (with an uptime SLA), managed, secure internet connectivity that's dedicated to you (goodbye to slowdown during peak times) with connection speeds exactly as promised — all we need to know is how fast you'd like to go.

Improve Resilience and Efficiency
- Use IP transit with a leased line to deliver a fixed capacity, high speed Internet connection to anyhere in the UK.
- The service is delivered over a dedicated fibre circuit to your location, and gives guaranteed Internet access speeds from 10Mbps to 10Gbps.
- Use P2P Ethernet with a leased line to deliver city-to-city private connectivity, without having to pay for a leased line to cover the whole distance.
- For example, connect your data centre in Manchester to your office in London using a leased line between your office and our London POP, and then take advantage of our lower cost P2P Ethernet to complete the circuit.
who uses leased lines?
Leased Lines in The Wild
Where connection performance is top of the agenda
- Yes, sharing is a good thing, but not where connectivity for your business is concerned. Because leased lines are absolutely private (dedicated, or a 1:1 contention ratio) they aren't vulnerable to the peak-time delays associated with consumer broadband.
- So if your organisation needs guaranteed speed throughout the working day (however long this might be!) a leased line offers performance without compromise.
Where downtime isn't an option
- Often, it's not until something is gone that you miss it. For many organisations, this can be painfully true — with so many "business critical" applications now deployed online, if the internet goes down, not much gets done.
- With a resilient, managed leased line in place, you can afford to take connectivity for granted, because it's not going anywhere soon. You get the reassurance of 24/7 monitoring, technical support and business class service level agreements (SLAs).
For connecting remote offices
- If you need to share (or backup) private data between multiple sites, a leased line offers a secure (remember, they're dedicated to you) way of achieving this, regardless of the number of locations, and no matter where they might be in the UK.
