We offer Fibre Leased Lines solutions direct to UK based businesses.
With speeds from 10Mbps right up to 1Gbps— Fibre Leased Line access services are ideal for those organisations that regard their Internet and MPLS VPN connectivity as absolutely mission critical. Fibre Leased Lines deliver a fibre connection using Ethernet technology right into your building. We’ll connect you directly to our core network and unlike copper based services (such as broadband) the speed is guaranteed and will not vary regardless of how far your building is from the network.
We use a wide range of carriers to provide Fibre Leased Lines, enabling you to select the access service, or combination of services, that best meets your requirements.
High performance and reliability
Fibre Leased Lines deliver the highest quality performance as there is no copper involved and services are delivered with uncontended bandwidth. Fix times for fibre are also the fastest, with the option for additional resilience using a secondary back-up service based on any access technology we offer.
Simple, cost effective bandwidth scaling
By putting in a high speed 100Mbps or 1Gbps bearer you can increase the committed data rate as the needs of your business grow without the need for new network infrastructure to be installed. For example start with 10Mbps over a 100Mbps fibre bearer, increasing to 20Mbps in a few months’ time quickly and without major additional cost.
Symmetrical committed data rates up to 1Gbps
Scale bandwidth as required without the need for the installation of new bearers.
Fibre Leased Lines Bandwidth is dedicated to you
No contention means you get guaranteed access speeds.
Back-up options available
Provide higher levels of resilience where site availability is critical.
24×7 monitoring and customer support
Fix problems quickly and minimise the impact on your business.
Fast repair times
Target repair times are 9 hours or less, much faster than traditional broadband services.
Network monitoring tools
Gain a better understanding of whether the service is being used efficiently or not.

Q: What is a Fibre Leased Line?
A: Fibre Leased Lines, also referred to as Ethernet over Fibre, are a dedicated point to point circuit that uses fibre from your premises to the nearest point that connects to a carriers backhaul network (e.g. within a carrier Point of Presence). Today Ethernet is the most common underlying technology used over which IP services can be run.
Q: What are Bearer and Committed Data Rate?
A: The bearer is the physical fibre circuit which can support different speeds depending on the bearer type – e.g. 100Mbps or 1Gbps. The Committed Data Rate (CDR) is the actual (logical) bandwidth supported by the service provided, which would be either equal to or less than the bearer speed. In this way you can start with a lower CDR, say 20Mbps on a 100Mbps bearer, but then upgrade later without the need to install a new bearer.
Q: Can one Fibre Lease Line be backed up by another, and if so would it be diverse?
A: Yes, you can back up one Fibre Leased Line with another and there are various levels of carrier and fibre route diversity that can be delivered.
