Leased Lines

A dedicated connection to the internet that’s solely for the use of your business

A leased line is a data circuit that you rent for your exclusive use. It connects your premises directly to the ISP’s data centre, whereas broadband routes data over a public network, used by lots of other people.

The connection will most likely be via a fibre optic connection, but it can be also via technology such as Ethernet first mile, over copper cables.

Business benefits of a leased line

The advantages of a leased line over broadband are not in outright download speeds – these may well be slower – but that you can have the same speed in both directions (synchronous connection). Plus, there will also be no contention from other businesses or individuals using the link, so it will maintain its performance levels regardless as to the time of day.

This also means that, unlike with broadband, there are no usage caps on the amount of data you can transfer, so at the busiest times you are not going to face an unexpected bill for exceeding your data allowance.

Security

If you’re working with sensitive data, then there are security issues too. By having a dedicated connection there’s less chance of information being intercepted in transit. However, you still need to protect data using methods like encryption for maximum protection.

Leased lines Vs broadband

The leased line speed is guaranteed and uncontended, whereas the broadband speed can vary depending on whether there’s a good movie on Netflix. Therefore, you need to consider how important reliable, consistent connection is to your business.

In addition, leased lines generally have much longer lead times for installation, because where broadband is delivered over an existing phone line, a leased line needs a new circuit to be installed. So, if you’re opening or relocating to a new site, you need to plan well in advance.
