Because a leased line is fibre optic, it's fast, anything from 100Mbps all the way to 1000Mbps and beyond! And unlike broadband, all that speed is dedicated to you and not shared or oversold so you always get the speed you pay for.
Latency is the time taken to send a message and get a reply to somewhere on the internet. With a leased line your latency is several orders of magnitude lower than normal broadband, generally lower than 10ms within the UK.
A leased line isn't your average internet connection, it's designed to stay online no matter what, and we include a 99.99% SLA with every leased line to guarantee it.
Download, or upload, it's all the same with a leased line. If you have 100Mbps download, you can upload data just as fast. Perfect for sharing large files with customers or performing backups off site.
