What is a GEA / EoFTTC Leased Line?
The acronyms sound complicated but GEA stands for Generic Ethernet Access, and EoFTTC stands for Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet. Both terms basically mean a cost-effective dedicated, internet connectivity solution for your business.
GEA or EoFTTC uses the existing copper or fibre cables to connect your business to the nearest green street cabinet. From there, a dedicated Ethernet over fibre leased line carries your data to the core network.
With Ethernet over fibre leased lines and generic Ethernet access you get guaranteed, symmetrical upload and download speeds of up to 19Mbps along with unlimited data usage. The uncontended connection means your leased line is dedicated to just your data, thus increasing security and reducing lag and latency.
In simple terms, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet is a high velocity, hybrid solution that gives businesses the speed and bandwidth of Ethernet for a business broadband price point.
Ethernet over FTTC for business is ideal for smaller businesses and companies that are looking for rapid connectivity (installation time is typically within 10 days). Generic Ethernet Access is a high-speed, low latency solution. Both solutions provide all the benefits of dedicated fibre connectivity but at a lower price point.
If you’ve got up to 20 users and want a cost-effective way to enjoy dedicated Ethernet over fibre leased line capabilities, look no further than GEA or Ethernet over FTTC for Business.

Symmetrical bandwidth is simple, and something that comes as standard with all leased line packages. Essentially, symmetrical bandwidth means that your business will have identical upload and download speeds. This is massively beneficial for corporate businesses, as you can upload and download simultaneously without experiencing any breaks in connection.
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.
Yes of course we can! A leased line is a fibre line which is built and delivered to order. Traditional telephony and street cabinets aren’t usually used on a typical leased line install.
