INTERNET CONNECTIVITY LONDON
Cubit works with the leading telecoms companies and internet services providers to offer our clients a full range of internet and telecom lines. With extensive knowledge and experience provisioning lines, we can avoid any complications when it comes to setting up new services or office moves.
We use various wholesale partners such as BT and other telecoms service providers so we can help you to choose the most appropriate line for your business needs while consolidating all of your billing. Our services range from:
- Standard BT Phone Lines (PSTN): We supply Single and Multi-line services for use with traditional PBX/business-grade phone systems.
- Assymetric Digital Subscriber Lines (ADSL): As the broadband standard for London, it works through the copper wires of your existing phone line. It can deliver up to 24Mbps but the bandwidth on an ADSL line is shared across multiple parties therefore you are competing for the available bandwidth. An assymetric line also has a higher download speed than its upload speed.
- FTTC Lines: Also known as Fibre-To-The Cabinet (FTTC), this technology is also delivered over standard copper lines. The key difference is that the copper only goes from your premises to the nearest street cabinet. From the cabinet to the local exchange there is a fibre optic cable which means bandwidth is higher that can deliver 100Mbps or more. As a contended line that is shared across multiple parties, it is asymmetric (has a high download speed but low upload speed) although the ratio is better.
- EFM Lines: A low cost leased line technology with cost savings over traditional fibre leased lines. It can be quickly installed but provides bandwidth speeds of up to 20Mbps (which is symmetric meaning upload and download speeds are the same) with no contention so you have a dedicated line.
- Fibre Leased Lines: A Leased Line is a network connection that you rent from an Internet service provider giving a dedicated level of bandwidth. The most common lines are symmetric at 100Mbps but speeds of 1Gbps are being increasingly installed.
- Wimax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access): is a technology standard for long-range wireless networking, for both mobile and fixed connections.Base stations at elevated locations in a city communicate between an antenna on the customer’s roof and the ISP.
There are many factors to be considered before you decide which connection type suits your organisation. Talk to Cubit about these and we’ll help you make the right decision.
