5 reasons your business needs a leased line

A leased line is a single fibre optic, dedicated line that runs from the telephone exchange seamlessly into your premises. This gives the premises a very strong, uncontended connection, making it a real business lifeline.
Here are our top five reasons your business should upgrade to a leased line connection:
1. You’re only as fast as your internet connection

You’re only as fast as your internet connection. Your business is only able to grab the attention of the customer if there is a clear, consistent dialogue. For this, you need reliable communication. With a leased line connection, you are guaranteed a strong, reliable link that will give a high-quality voice and data connection that will allow your business to thrive.

2. You use lots of data

Leased lines offer symmetrical bandwidth which gives the same high download AND upload speeds. This provides optimal performance for companies that deal with a large amount of data. With these speeds being so high and uncontended, it also means having more of your employees using this line won’t cause a slower connection – and you’re still at full connection during peak times!

3. You use cloud-based systems

If your business uses cloud-based technology, relying on the use of video calling and VoIP calls, then a leased line will offer you little to no interruptions. These systems are reliant on being able to connect to the cloud… So having an internet dip or losing speed in peak times could, unfortunately, cause a lot of damage to your communications or result in lost business.

4. You use remote or hybrid working

Since the initial UK lockdowns in March 2020, it left businesses with two options: close through this duration or offer remote working. The hybrid/ remote options have boomed since the UK reopened. If you’re one of the businesses that give your employees this option, then a leased line might just be for you! Instead of relying on the home broadband of your employees, a leased line will have the bandwidth to cope with multiple concurrent VPN connections so your staff can be just as productive as they would if they were in the office.

5. Business location

If your business is in a congested location, this can slow down your speeds as it’s a shared connection will all the homes/ businesses around you. Whether you’re a small, medium, or large business, you can define how much speed you require from a leased line to suit any business needs.
