Leased Line Connectivity Solutions

Your choices for connecting to the outside world are getting better all the time.

Remember – if you’re using the web or cloud services like Microsoft 365 to run your business, your productivity is tied to the speed and reliability of your internet connection.

If your staff access your office remotely, that’s a factor, too.

Fibre to the premises (FTTP) or ‘full fibre’Fibre-optic cables right to your office. The fastest and most desirable connection, usually. Can be expensive for faster versions (gigabit speed) but the cost may be fully justified if you have high demands.
Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)The fast fibre ends in a street cabinet near you, and the last stretch to your office is over copper cables. A cheaper hybrid solution. Max speed is around 80 megabits.
EthernetIf you can’t get fibre, this is probably the next best thing. Max speed depends on location, but is likely about 80 megabits. Likely to have business-grade support and features.
ADSLPiggy-backing on your old copper phone line, ADSL is widely available, and it can be relatively cheap. Speed varies dependent on distance from the exchange – from a few megabits up to around 20. Reliability can be poor at some sites.
Virgin CableVirgin use a combination of fibre-optic and high-grade copper cables to provide up to 300 megabits to your premises. We can tell you if this is an option, as they don’t cover all addresses.
Mobile Data
With good 4G or 5G mobile coverage, mobile data can be viable in some scenarios, particularly as a fallback.
All of these options can be subject to installation fees, which may be waived for longer contracts.


When up-rating your internet connection speed, make sure you have a firewall that can process your data at the new speeds. Faster connections need faster firewalls!


As part of your risk management, you should consider having two ways to connect to the internet, or a mitigation strategy in case of problems. We can help you with this.

Telephone Connections

SIP Displaces ISDN

For over forty years, business phones have been connected using ISDN. With a switch-off date of 2025, any system that still uses ISDN will need to be modernised quite soon.

Modern systems often connect to the wider telephone system (the ‘PSTN’) via a method called SIP. The SIP connection (a ‘SIP trunk’) can run over your existing internet connection, if it’s fast and reliable enough.

We can set you up with a SIP provider, seamlessly move your phone numbers over, and your calls will be handled by the new provider.

Advantages of SIP

Cheaper line rental and calls costs

Fast and economical setup

Can be interfaced to most systems, including  Microsoft Teams voice calling

Emergency re-routing, and other fault tolerance

Easy call data reporting

Easy to scale up when demand increases

Better call quality
