Ethernet Broadband / EFM (Ethernet First Mile)
– alternative for those on a budget
Ethernet is a reliable mid-range broadband alternative, that offers faster speed than a typical DSL connection. It is popular as it combines super reliable performance with fantastic value.
EFM is suitable for providing reliable VPN and VoIP services, replacing traditional leased lines or SDSL technology, and is a must for any small or medium business using cloud based applications or services.
One of the primary benefits of choosing ethernet is that it combines multiple copper lines into one single ethernet interface so even if there is an issue with one access line, it will still be able to deliver the connection and therefore considered more reliable that other ADSL services. So if one of the pairs fail, the connection will continue to operate, but at a lower speed, making it fault tolerant.
By combining symmetrical speeds that are more consistent, unlimited usage over a network that’s built for business, and a choice of flexible packages, ethernet broadband / EFM delivers real value for money for small and medium sized businesses.
