Ethernet First Mile (EFM) is a low cost leased line technology with substantial cost savings over traditional fibre leased line over conventional fibre leased lines. It provides a faster and synchronous speed than other services that are delivered across copper. It is an alternative in the areas where Fibre ethernet is not available or too costly to install. EFM uses a number of copper wires pairs to connect your business premises to a single resilient connection. If one pair fails, the network connection continues to operate but at a slower speed, making it fault-tolerant.
Through this service, your business will be able to receive an uncontended connection with low latency, committed bandwidth and symmetrical download and upload speed. EFM is available to almost 80% of businesses in the UK. It is the best option to keep your cost down while having an ultra high speed of up to 35Mbps.
