Benefits of Leased Line vs FTTC: Which Is Right For You?

Yann Connectivity, Services 5 minutes

Leased Lines and FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) have their strengths regarding broadband connections. But which one is the best fit for your needs?

Depending on your business type and the number of users, you need to consider several factors in deciding which connection will work best.

Here, we break down the benefits of each.

1. Speed: Leased lines shine when it comes to speed. Offering up to 10 Gbps (10,000 Mbps), they dwarf the ‘up to’ 20 Mbps upstream typically offered by FTTC broadband. The real-world difference is even more pronounced.

2. Consistency and Quality: Unlike dial-up connections, a leased line is always active, ensuring a consistently high-quality connection. Thanks to fibre technology, you can expect uninterrupted bandwidth.

3. Reliability: FTTC connections might be popular, but they lag in reliability when compared to fibre-optic FTTP connections, which, in turn, are rivalled by the resilience of leased lines.

4. Cost-Effectiveness: While FTTP is generally favoured for speed and price, leased lines ensure you get the bandwidth you pay for, making them a valuable option for businesses that need guaranteed speeds.

5. Performance Assurance: A leased line guarantees both upload and download speed, uptime, and resilience – even though it might come at a premium cost. It’s the perfect choice for businesses that can’t afford any downtime.

6. Service Level Agreements (SLAs): Our leased line services offer superior traffic prioritisation and robust SLAs, guaranteeing a higher standard of reliability and performance. With these agreements, we help to ensure swift and effective resolution of any issues, emphasising the importance of rapid response times in critical situations. Selecting the right service provider is crucial, as the speed at which connectivity problems are addressed can significantly impact your business operations. Our dedicated managed helpdesk goes beyond mere workstation and server support; we provide comprehensive management of your network connectivity, ensuring that your SLAs are met with the highest level of proficiency and attention to detail. This holistic approach to SLA management ensures that your business receives top-tier support, safeguarding your operations against potential disruptions.
