Ethernet Leased Lines from UK IT Networks

Stickmen with plug

We provide Ethernet connectivity to all the UK’s major network operators. Our Ethernet services offer high connectivity speeds via a Next Generation Network (Multi Service Platform) between two or more locations in a point-to-point or point-to-multi-point situation.

Ethernet and EFM services are ideal for those who require consistently high connectivity speeds, regularly transfer sensitive data from site to site, or have a high demand for uploads and downloads. Ethernet is now the connectivity service of choice for corporate businesses and public sector organisations that need high performance, flexibility and value for money. If you are looking to future-proof your business then these services are for you.

No Upfront*

We’ve structured our pricing so that no capital outlay is required on a 3 or 5 year contract term. Our Ethernet products are suitable for any size of organisation looking for fast and reliable connectivity. With business Ethernet Leased Lines prices constantly reducing, the rental cost of an Ethernet Leased Line connection is minimal when compared to the importance it has to your business.

Reduced Installation Times

Our range of partners allows us to choose the network that is closest to you and therefore on-net. Using an on-net ethernet partner can heavily reduce lead times from the standard quota. Equally, as standard, our high speed business Ethernet products can be delivered in as little as 20 working days for FTTC Ethernet, 30 days for EFM and 60 days for Fibre Ethernet Leased Lines from the point of order.

Ethernet Security

Business Ethernet Leased Lines are inherently secure because they operate as point-to-point services over our dedicated network infrastructure. However, if a connection is provided to the Internet, additional security services scan of course be actioned through Firewalls.

Failover using HSRP

HSRP allows you to seamlessly switch between your Ethernet Leased Line and failover connection. Using dual network providers or dual product technologies i.e. Ethernet & FTTC, mirrored IP addresses ensure the smooth transition from one connection to the other.

Frequently Asked Questions

Discover the answers to our most popular questions below

What is an Ethernet Leased Line?

An Ethernet Leased Line is a dedicated connection between your premises and the internet. Unlike traditional broadband, Ethernet Leased Lines are uncontended; ensuring you get the bandwidth speeds you have subscribed to. Ethernet Leased Lines are ideal to support applications such as Voice (VoIP), video conferencing and large data transactions.

Are Ethernet Leased Lines expensive to install?

No, we amortise the installation cost within a 3 or 5 year contract to reduce that up-front expenditure. Making Ethernet Leased Lines an affordable and reliable solution for businesses of all sizes.

How long does it take to install an Ethernet Leased Line?

Installation times are subject to survey and can change from order to order, however as standard; Ethernet First Mile can be delivered in 30 working days. Ethernet Leased line can be delivered in 60 working days.

What Ethernet Leased Line speeds are available?

We provide Ethernet in different flavours, from 1Mbps up to 10Gbps. Ethernet First Mile range from 1Mbps to 35Mbps, depending on the distance from the exchange. Ethernet Leased lines speed typically range from 10Mbps to 10Gbps.

What does un-contended Ethernet mean?

Ethernet is provided over a dedicated network which is not shared with other businesses. This ensures that your Ethernet Leased Line offers 100% of the bandwidth you’ve been quoted, regardless of times, network restraints and other businesses' demands.

Can our existing Fibre be used at site for an Ethernet Leased Line?

It’s standard within the industry that all quotations make the assumption that existing fibre is present and available for use to deliver an Ethernet Leased Line. A site survey will be carried out to ascertain whether the correct fibre provisions are available to use. A survey is normally completed immediately after you have placed your order for Ethernet.

What Hardware is provided for your Ethernet Leased Lines?

Unless stated otherwise all our Ethernet Leased Lines are provided with a managed Cisco router. Which Cisco router is provided will depend on what sized Ethernet Leased Line you take in order to provide optimum performance at all times.

Which Networks do you partner with for Ethernet Leased Lines?

We have multiple partnering agreements for our Ethernet Leased Line agreements. Utilising a close relationship with BT, Vodafone, TTB and Virgin we can ensure that we can obtain the most competitive pricing for your Ethernet Leased Line quotation.

How are Ethernet Leased Lines monitored?

All of our Ethernet customers Leased Lines are monitored within our NOC 24/7/365 to ensure consistency in performance and immediate response to service issues.

What Service Level Agreement can I expect from an Internet Leased Line?

As standard, Internet Leased Lines are highly resilient. We offer a 99.985% protected circuit availability SLA. We are aware some ISP’s provide a 100% SLA, however you’d probably find that all service credits will work out similar should you ever encounter an outage.

What options are there for backup on Ethernet Leased Lines?

We offer all of our customers failover connectivity for their Ethernet Leased Line ranging from ADSL2+, FTTC to an alternative carrier's Ethernet. Using Cisco technology our failover is provided using HSRP. If we provided one Internet Leased Line over one BTW and the other over Vodafone, both would have their own managed Cisco hardware, mapped with the same IP addresses, failing over to each other in the event of a network outage.

Can our Ethernet Leased Line be upgraded?

Our customers can upgrade their Ethernet Leased Line speeds at any point. However they may need to consider what their Ethernet Leased Line bearer speed is. For instance if you have a 10Mbps Ethernet Leased Line on a 10Mbps bearer, you are at the maximum speed of the Ethernet Leased Line already. Therefore we would need to install a new connection to meet your requirements. Upgrades are subject to increase in rental charges.

What is Converged Ethernet?

Using Converged Ethernet your business would make cost savings by consolidating voice and data. You can have full confidence in partnering with the market leader in VoIP telephony delivery.

What support can I expect from having an Internet Leased Line with UK IT Networks?

Here at UK IT Networks we don't operate multiple queues. We provide each and every customer a dedicated account manager. So if you ever encounter an issue or query with your Internet Leased line, one call to your account manager or our dedicated support team is all it takes to find resolution.
