Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

EFM is perfect for small to medium-sized businesses which require a higher bandwidth than is available through a traditional internet connection.

It is a low cost, high-speed network suitable for many companies.

What is EFM?

EFM provides UK businesses with symmetric and dedicated leased lines that offer up to 20Mb of bandwidth.

It provides a cost-effective upgrade for a business wanting to achieve a high-capacity connection, without the hefty cost of a full fibre Ethernet solution.

EFM can use both copper and fibre circuits delivering symmetrical upload and download speeds, and is ideal for businesses that need a faster connection for data-hungry applications, including VoIP and video conferencing.

What are the benefits of EFM?

  • It provides a low-cost solution with all the benefits of using fibre.
  • Faster connection speeds are compatible with the latest cutting-edge communications available on the market.
  • EFM is delivered over copper (phone lines) to provide a more resilient option on the first mile.
  • EFM is protected from outside factors and is run over an uncontended network giving businesses complete control of its bandwidth.
  • Installation and connection is quick when using a traditional copper infrastructure.
