What is a leased line and what are the benefits?

Leased lines give your business uncontested access to the internet - ensuring that your company stays connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Businesses big and small can benefit from fast, reliable and affordable leased lines –enjoying high speed, dedicated internet access on super reliable, enterprise grade lines.

Offering the ability to carry voice, data and internet traffic along your own pipe to the internet, leased lines often become the main pillar of an organisation’s communications infrastructure and are ideal for businesses who cannot afford any drop in service or loss of connectivity.

A leased line could offer your organisation a first-class internet experience with reliable speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 10Gbps. You’ll benefit from a tough, resilient internet connection with guaranteed download and upload speeds, no matter how many users are active at any one time. This enables you to transfer huge files between sites, customers, and employees.

Our leased lines can be scaled to fulfill your business’ fluctuating requirements, offering the flexibility to increase or decrease the speeds that you receive. Network Telecom carries a 100% Service Level Agreement where backup connectivity is provided, is continuously monitored and is supported 24/7 by our UK based technical engineers.

What types of leased lines do we offer?

Fibre leased line

A fibre leased line is a private dedicated circuit that runs directly between the nearest exchange and your premises, moving through a business’ own managed router and firewall before going out to the internet.

Point to point

A point to point leased line is a dedicated line that runs from one premises to another. They are often used when an organisation has multiple sites and needs to transfer data between them quickly and securely.
