Ethernet over FTTC
EoFTTC uses FTTC and FTTP technologies to provide a non-contended path to the Internet. By 2014 about two thirds of the UK will be able receive this technology. It's comparatively low cost to install, speedy delivery times, and higher headlines speeds compared to EFM makes it a compelling option to consider if it's available in your area.
Unlike fibre leased lines or EFM, it doesn't benefit from symmetrical speeds for uploads and downloads. It comes in three variations with the ultimate speed being determined by the quality and length of your line in much the same way you would expect from traditional ADSL or FTTC. Where it differs itself is in the consistency of speed as it isn't subject to contention. Much like with it's EFM and leased line alternatives a service level agreement is in place to ensure you get the support you need around the clock with service credits available if targets aren't met.
GEA Leased Lines are ideal when:
|Speeds / Bandwidth|
|Download Speed||Variable||The speed you achieve depends on the distance from your enabled cabinet and the quality of your line. There are 2 variations of download speed - up to 40Mbps and up to 80Mbps.|
|Upload Speed||Asymmetrical||There are a total of three upload packages. Up to 2Mbps, up to 10Mbps and up to 20Mbps. The speed you achieve is down to the distance from the enabled cabinet and your requirements.|
|Bandwidth||1:1 Non-Contended||The bandwidth supplied is not shared with anyone on the CIX network. As such you won't see any fluctuations in speed other than what is being consumed by your workers.|
|Pricing||Varies||The price you pay will vary depending on your location and bandwidth requirements. As such it is important you make contact with a member of our team to provide you with a tailored quote.|
|Contract Length||1 or 3 Years||Free installation options are available on longer term contracts. We can provide you with multiple package deals for you to choose from.|
|SLA||7 Hour Fix||In the unlikely event of a failure on your line we will provide on-site assistance, around the clock, with a 7 hour fix aim.|
