Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

EFM uses existing copper pairs to deliver connectivity into your building and allows bandwidths from 1Mb to 35Mb depending on your distance from the local telephone exchange. The use of multiple pairs allows resilience on the circuit, as if one pair fails you can still use the circuit at a slightly reduced bandwidth.

EFM is perfect for customers who are close to the exchange and would like between 20Mb and 30Mb which will be most cost competitive than fibre leased lines. It is also largely suited to providing bandwidth for hosted telephony and SIP traffic.

We like to provide EFM circuits as a managed service so we are able to monitor your connection and give you any support you require – we can offer 1, 3, or 5 year contract terms as with our other connectivity products.
