Leased line - best option


[link to this post]
 
I have brought my poor internet connection up on these forums before, but I am considering a leased line of around 100/100.

Are there any recommendations for cheap reliable providers?

How cheap is cheap?

Personally I would probably start by talking to TalkTalk Business and Virgin Business and go from there. A lot of the cost could be the install if there is a large distance between you and the POP. Suspect you are looking at over £400 per month - is that what you consider to be cheap?

Installation costs can and will be in the thousands and for a symmetrical service like 100/100 you're probably looking at about £4-500 a month + VAT.

Where are you based? City? Rural? Town/postcode would be useful.

Leased line pricing (in a well connected city) is around £300 for 30mb/30mb, and for 100mb/100mb you will be doing well if you get it for any less than £425 per calender month.

The other question of course is why do you need such high upload speeds?

You essentially repeated what I said responding to me rather than the OP?

Yes, apologies, trying to do too many things at once.

Im also thinking about going the same route, as quite frankly my Bt spin off ISP connection is utter [censored], latency spikes as high as 140ms at 4am. ?? >frown and i live in OAP central.

http://www.hso.co.uk/leased-lines/leased-line/bt-lea...

http://chunkychips.net - £400pm for a 100/100mb leased line.

BT's are around the £480pm for 100/100 and are supplied with a cisco router to wink

If you do go down the leased line route then i would suggest you get yourself a cash generating system put in place, to help you fund the conenction.

i.e, You could always setup a little wireless lan at your house and offer other people a piece of your connection but then you could be classed as reselling the service, without correct procedure.

Setup a website - place adverts on your site for other users, ( no pop up [censored] ad's thoe ) to generate some cash income.


£400 over 3 years is alot, roughly £15k i think. + then you might have setup fee's which can come into the £3k mark.

Would copper based EFM maybe work out cheaper than a fibre leased line?

They are usually around 30/30 and consist of multiple copper pairs.

Leased lines are seriously expensive beasts, and normally business grade, which means speed, reliability and cost reflect that.

What is it you are specifically trying to achieve with a leased line solution?

If you can get FTTC with a TalkTalk backhaul, I would seriously be looking at the Andrews and Arnold Home::1T (terabyte) packages which clock in from £60/month. Full 80/20 provisioned service over the TT backhaul network, but actual speed dependent on line length of course.

http://www.aaisp.net.uk/broadband-home1-terabyte.html

To me, this would be like an entry level leased line, but more at a consumer (non-business) level. They even do a SoHo version of this graded for 2 terabytes per month.

If you exceed your quota, your connection is limited down to 3Mb/s (6Mb/s on the SoHo version) until the start of the next month, so your connection is never abruptly terminated, just slowed down.
