Leased Lines (Ethernet Circuits)

Often used as a generic term to refer to data circuits, Leased Lines can also be used to describe EFM, GEA, EoFTTC, and MIA circuits, which supply Ethernet speeds over standard copper and fibre infrastructure.

Leased Lines from CIC services allow you to cover your computer networks and telephony systems as part of a commercial business communications structure to connect sites, connect sites to the internet, or as part of an MPLS/PWAN.

What are leased lines?

A leased line provides simultaneous same transfer speed for data in both directions. If you have a cloud system, it means many of your critical business processes depends on the internet connection, so this equal speed is a significant advantage. It also makes for more reliable use of communication services such as video calling and VoIP telephony which are increasingly used to reduce business communication costs.

Ethernet first mile (EFM) leased lines use a combination of linked pairs of cables and signal processing technology for higher speeds over a conventional copper circuit. There is also fibre carrier (or Ethernet over fibre) leased lines.

This means that you get guaranteed consistent download speeds compared to a broadband connection. While the speeds may not look ultra-quick in comparison of some broadband offerings, having a dedicated circuit makes a huge difference to regular usability.

You have faster upload speeds due to the synchronous circuit. In the age of the cloud where many of your critical business systems may be reliant upon an internet connection, this is a big advantage. It also makes for more reliable video calling and VoIP telephony.

There is no sharing when using a leased line. The circuit is reserved for your use only, so the connection won’t slow down due to higher demand from other people at peak times. This is a key consideration for internet-based businesses, especially if you want to run your own in-house web servers where a fast connection in both directions is crucial. Thus, there are no usage caps on the amount of data you can transfer, even during your busiest time of the year, you are not going billed any higher than your pre-set amount for going over your data allowance at the end of the month.

You will get a reliability factor too. Because leased line services are business focused, they tend to come with guaranteed levels of service. The support is so designed to recognise that the service is essential for your business and that you need to get up and running again quickly in the event of a problem.

What is the cost of leased line?

The cost of leased lines depends on the distance from end to end and the amount of work that is required to connect the service. Monthly recurring charges are related to the speed (bandwidth) of your circuit. Charges might (for very rare cases) vary from due to the location as well. Connect in Cloud operates with a number of cities and all over London to get you the best deal and also will recommend the right speeds to suit your company’s requirements.

Quality of service


Although highly reliable and secure, Ethernet Circuits will take a longer time to install than other data circuits. Normally, installation takes around 60-90 working days. These timescales accept there are no transfer, cabling issues in the area, which can result in further pauses, as a cable literally has to be installed through current cabling from the local point of presence of the ISP into your sites.

If there are bent channels, or indeed there are no channels in place, the road needs to be closed to install them which can often double or even triple the installation periods and the extra work will be chargeable.

If your business operates several sites that depends on a central data centre for their computing needs, then a leased line is highly required. The reliable connection makes it easier and quicker to transfer large files between your sites, and it will be better for the heavy cloud applications. It’s excellent for Internet-based communication such as video calling and VoIP phone calls which are widely used by businesses looking to keep their call costs in check.
