Ethernet Internet Access
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) is a new, highly resilient copper-based Ethernet service, capable of carrying high bandwidth connections of up to 10Mbps into your premises without the need for end-to-end fibre leased lines.
Making use of EFM as part of a network solution offers considerable cost savings as it utilises very low cost copper pairs rather then a dedicated fibre installation. Providing up to 10Mbps (<3Km from the exchange), with the advantage of “bundling” 5 copper pairs from the exchange to the premises to attain the bandwidth giving excellent resilience as the service simply scales the speed down rather than completely failing.
- Guaranteed bandwidth – no contention
- 10Mbps upstream and downstream – ideal for Head Office connectivity and supporting remote or home workers
- EFM can generally be delivered in 35 days – compared to the months sometimes associated with new fibre installations
