What is a Fibre Flex Leased Line?
If your business currently has ultrafast business broadband, it might be time to consider switching to a Fibre Flex leased line.
Fibre Flex leased line is becoming increasingly popular with businesses of all sizes. Not only does it provide superfast connectivity, at a lower cost than other leased line services on the market, it also provides burstable capacity when you most need it – at no extra cost. Fibre Flex comes with guaranteed minimum 200Mbps symmetrical speeds, with the option to burst to 1Gbps during periods of high bandwidth demand.
Fibre Flex is currently available in 29 cities across the UK, with longer term plans to expand the network to 60 locations. Despite Fibre Flex using the GPON shared fibre network, that doesn’t mean you’ll see less quality. Although the network is shared, you’ll only be sharing your network with a small number of other customers. This will ensure that your business has the superfast connectivity speeds it needs, whenever it needs it.

A leased line is a dedicated internet line. Unlike business broadband which is shared amongst other businesses, a leased line isn’t shared with anyone else. This means a leased line can give you guaranteed symmetrical speeds, enhanced reliability and unrivalled speeds to make sure your business gets the connectivity service it needs.
A leased line and Ethernet are essentially the same. Dedicated business internet access using a superfast Ethernet cable is known by many names, including leased line, Ethernet or Dedicated Internet Access.
There are several different types of leased lines available. All suit different budgets and different business needs. They include:
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) – EFM provides an end-to-end solution using multiple copper wires to connect your business to the Ethernet core network. Ideal where fibre Ethernet is not currently available or would be costly to install.
Generic Ethernet Access (GEA) or Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC) – A hybrid solution where existing fibre or copper cables connect your business to the street cabinet before a dedicated Ethernet line carries your data to the core network.
Leased Line or Fibre Ethernet – The ultimate end-to-end connectivity solution which offers unparalleled levels of speed and reliability. It can be implemented in most locations whether fibre is currently available or not.
Fibre Flex Leased Line – Commit to a low cost minimum bandwidth i.e. 200Mb and you will get burstable bandwidth of up to 1Gb when available, at no extra cost.
Point-to-Point – Perfect for connecting two or more offices in different locations and ensures your data is secure and your network performance is more reliable.
Well that depends on several factors such as how many employees you have and the services and applications that those employees use your internet for. Email, cloud services, VoIP phone calls, VoIP system, uploading and downloading files, web browsing, video conferencing and more all affect bandwidth.
Light use – basic email and web browsing
Moderate use – file downloads, streaming music or video, cloud usage and VoIP
Strong use – all of the above as well as large file downloads and interactive conferencing
Heavy use – all of the above as well as heavy use of internet applications and multiple devices per user
Well simply because with a leased line you get more than you do with traditional broadband. A leased line is an enterprise-grade solution delivered over an Ethernet fibre line direct into your business, dedicated specifically for your use.
Broadband on the other hand is a shared consumer level service which is delivered using copper wires. With Ethernet you’ll get guaranteed speeds and enhanced reliability – things which are at a much lesser standard when using traditional broadband.
