EFM technology is perfect for any business that is looking for a cost effective, high bandwidth Internet connection.
It sits between ADSL (which can be limiting depending on your location) and a full leased line (which can be
prohibitively expensive to small business). It makes use of multiple bonded copper pairs providing speeds of up to 35Mbps. These speeds are symmetrical ensuring you have the same up and downstream speeds, making it perfect for VoIP calls or when handling large amounts of data. The multiple bonded pairs also offer resilience, in as much as should one or multiple pairs develop a fault, the connection still operates but at a slower speed.
Leased Line (Fibre).
Fibre can provide your business with a dedicated connection to the Internet and deliver the ultimate in broadband connectivity. They are not shared or contended with. The DTC network ensuring you get consistently fast connection all day.

SLA's are in place to ensure that regardless of the fault, or time of day, working on the issue.
Generic Ethernet Access uses FTTC and FTTP technologies to provide a non-contended path to the Internet. It’s comparatively low cost to install, speedy delivery times, and higher
headline speeds compared to EFM make 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
