Re: 2Connect - Leased Line provision

In reply to a post by jpm:
Gigabit leased lines in central London are dirt cheap, which is just as well because it's that or ADSL a lot of the time.

Hehe yeah define "dirt cheap" wink

Saying that 2Connect were several hundred pounds per month cheaper than VMB for the same service! I don't think VMB were really trying that hard...

Leased lines are cheap everywhere at the minute, 2Connect were the cheapest we spoke to but there were a few within a few pounds of 2Connect for us, and there were a lot who were more than double.

The '45 day guarantee' is a current promotion from Virgin themselves - in thaory any provider using VMB can (or at least should) offer that

I wasn't aware. Thats a really good lead time comapred to some I've seen.

£400pm for 1gbps is a very good price.

Yes a pretty compelling deal and the price was well south of £400.

I have a direct quote from VMB, not only were they £200 per month adrift of the price I was offered by 2Connect there was no mention from them of a 45 day install time guarantee.

I can only surmise they either weren’t terribly interested or their sales guy was literally going though the motions....

"Leased lines are cheap everywhere at the minute" - not everywhere. In urban areas there are some very good prices, but in rural areas the prices are much much higher, and seem to be rising. Admittedly I haven't checked for a year, but 5 years ago I was quoted 325+VATpm for a 30Mbps on 100, but more recently the cheapest was a 50 on 1Gbps for over £700pm.

I installed a 100/1000 leased line for a customer not that long ago in a rural area for £400 per month

That's not bad, but still a lot more than it would be in an urban area - and I'm guessing it wouldn't be that price in all rural areas.
A superfast connection would be nice, but even at that price it makes more sense to give up work and use the money to retire early.

The gist of his “everywhere” comment was I believe about leased line service pricing elsewhere around the country as a whole.

Of course rural areas in comparison to urban ones (or where a provider has ready access to infrastructure) will virtually always be more expensive to connect for a single service. I know that all too well.
