Highly Reliable Symmetrical Internet from just £175/month
EFM Leased Lines (Ethernet in the First Mile) provides high speed, reliable internet connectivity for businesses who have a need for more than the traditional Broadband service can provide and where fiber based Ethernet services are still too expensive.
EFM uses multiple copper pairs to deliver the service. These pairs are bonded together to provided a combined service, which also means a much more reliable service as should there be a fault on a single wire the service will just slow down, and not take your business offline completely.
EFM Copper wire faults are dealt with by BT Openreach as “Service Level 4″ which aims to have an engineer resolve the fault within 6 hours.
To order EFM you will need to contact our sales team. Orders are subject to a site survey and can take between 25 days and 90 days to complete. EFM is available in 1500 of the most popular UK telephone exchanges and you can still receive service up to almost 4km from the exchange.
To use EFM, BT Openreach will install a number of copper pairs and associated wall sockets along with an EFM network adapter which provides you with an Ethernet socket. You will need to have a spare power socket available within 1M of the BT sockets.
You cannot re-grade a 2 pair to a 4 pair service or vice versa. Any change in service would require a full cease and re-provide to be completed.
- FidoNet EFM services are available on a 1, 2 or 3 year contract
- Discounts are available for a 3 year term
- Installation and first quarter rental fees are payable when you place the order
All EFM Services are subject to a contract which will need to be completed before the delivery date can be confirmed. The contract will be sent to you using “Adobe EchoSign” and can be signed electronically and returned within a few minutes.
