Leased line & P2P

A dedicated internet connection for your business

A leased line is a data circuit for your exclusive use. It connects your premises directly to the Openreach exchange, whereas broadband routes data over a public network, used by lots of other people. The connection will be via a fibre optic cable, used by you exclusively.

Leased lines vs broadband

Leased line speed is guaranteed and uncontended, whereas broadband speeds can vary. Therefore, you need to consider how important a reliable connection is to your business.

Leased lines generally have much longer lead times for installation, because where broadband is delivered over existing infrastructure, a leased line needs a new circuit to be installed. So, if you're opening a new office or relocating to a different building, you need to plan well in advance.

If there is a problem with your leased line, you are guaranteed to have an engineer sent out within 4-6 hours to investigate the issue and resolve it. However, with a broadband connection, it could be up to two days before the problem is investigated.
