What is a leased line and how can your business benefit from one?

A leased line is quite simply a connection to the internet. However, it’s a little different from your normal connection. It’s a dedicated private line that connects an ultrafast fibre line directly to the premises, allowing a huge amount of traffic to go through without interruptions, the line is solely for the purpose of serving your business, without any other connections involved. Let’s take a quick look at some of the typical uses of leased lines and the advantages they can provide.


Typical uses of leased lines

  • Phone calls – VoIP
  • Access to servers (Cloud)
  • General internet use
  • Remote access from home workers 


Leased lines can start at 10Mbps (not that anyone would use this small of a speed for a leased line) and reach up to 10Gbps, allowing large scale businesses to efficiently operate. Leased lines are primarily used for businesses because they are expensive. However, if you are a business owner with a large-scale operation, the advantages far outweigh the costs when looking to supply your business with the number of connections you need.


Advantages of a leased line

  • Ultrafast speeds
  • High level of security
  • Large bandwidth
  • Low latency/ping
  • Cost effective
  • Symmetrical speeds (upload and download)
