A leased line is a dedicated internet line, with fixed bandwidth up and down. The line is “uncontested” meaning that only your traffic is travelling on it and it is not shared with any other businesses or residences. This means the speeds are consistent, not slowing to a crawl during peak hours.
Leased lines are used by millions of businesses worldwide for fast upload and download speeds, and guaranteed uptime. Unlike traditional broadband, where you will have a higher download speed than upload speed, and your connection will contend with others in your area.
A leased line is the fastest and most reliable dedicated internet connection available. In comparison, FTTC connections are usually 80mb download and 20mb upload. Some businesses would struggle with these speeds, as the upload speed is not quick enough to upload huge amounts of large files, or run their online backups overnight. Leased lines come with speeds of up to 10Gb in both directions, meaning the transformation in business operations can be huge.
