Well I just googled "leased line prices" and in the suggested list, (before you get a Results list), was "leased line prices uk" so I selected that.

In the sponsored ads on the right-hand side was

Usually depndant on your location and the distance to their nearest POP.

I don't know anything abount vivaciti in particular, but very roughly - outside London you'll be looking at around 800-1000/month for a 10 meg, maybe a bit less, for an ehternet delivered service. THis is usually on a 100mbit bearer so 20 meg will be much less than double.
If you're in a Virgin area, you can get 100meg for around that price. Some areas that have EFM available at the exchange will proabaly have providers who can offer slightly less speed for considerably less money.

I think we're paying around £6k/year for our symmetrical 10Mbps line.
At those prices it's not hard to work out why BT aren't upgrading cabs, in industrial and business districts, to FTTC wink

DL Sync around 4.8Mbps

There are many ISPs offering leased line - Entanet is just one, and sadly, I've found them to be on the expensive side of things.

However, a good quick quote can be found in the AAISP site:

http://clueless.aa.net.uk/etherquote.cgi

that's always good as a benchmark.

Oether technology is EFM - and someone I looked at recently gave good numbers -

http://www.goscomb.net/connectivity/ethernet-first-mile

But do remember that with a leased line you're connection contention should be 1:1 from your premises right to the edge of the ISPs network and it's symetrical and usually does not come with any sort of data cap. (But these are important questions to ask the ISP!) Ping times should be a lot less over a leased line too - 1-2ms for fibre, possibly more for EFM which is delivered on copper.

The answer will depend entirely upon your location and how much of that 10Mb/s or 100Mb/s you want as commit - ie guaranteed available bandwidth across the network.

If you are in central London or close to the centre of another major network point of presence the price will be an order of magnitude lower than if you are not.

With a leased line you will also face significant installation costs - unless you are willing to commit to a minimum 3 year contract it's fairly common for install on a 100Mb/s fibre connection to be several thousands of pounds.

Andy,
I am afraid there is no standard answer to that one, as a leased line dependent on the location.
If you wanted to drop us a mail to sales AT vivaciti DOT net with the line speed options and the postcode we can get a quote over to you.
