Business Ethernet First Mile Connectivity
EFM Leased Lines (Ethernet in the First Mile) provides high speed, reliable internet connectivity for businesses who have outgrown traditional broadband, but where fibre-based Ethernet services are still too expensive.
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) delivers flexible data connectivity over a choice of 2 copper pairs (up to 10Mbps) or 4 pairs (up to 20Mbps), with a minimum symmetrical speed guarantee of 2Mbps. It's an ideal replacement for legacy technologies, some of which are being retired or more expensive leased line services.
