High Speed Internet UK | EFM

Faster internet connectivity with Ethernet First Mile.

Speed and security are the most important criteria for any internet connection, but especially when it's your business that is running on your internet line. You want the fastest and most secure line possible. Of course, cost is also a major factor in your decision for high speed internet. UK dedicated lines can be expensive. With EFM (Ethernet First Mile), you can have the fastest internet speeds, on your own secure and dedicated internet line at the lowest prices available.

Benefits of EFM

Ethernet First Mile provides you with your own private internet line to run your video, voice or data on. Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Uncontended internet connectivity
  • A single, unshared line
  • Secure connection to the internet
  • High speed connectivity
  • Lower costs on connection and usage
  • Available on copper and fibre lines
  • 24/7 Fully managed services

Up until 2010, EFM wasn't available as broadly as it is now. But since that time, ADSL and SDSL can be improved upon by choosing EFM instead. Unlike ADSL, EFM lines are single, dedicated lines that you don't share with anyone, meaning high bandwidth and much faster speeds.
