EFM Broadband


Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) is built on a proven and robust network structure using multiple copper pairs to deliver a high capacity Ethernet service as an ideal upgrade from SDSL or Leased Line services. This is a superior technology delivered using less copper pairs than competitors without compromising on speed. In fact, we can provide symmetrical speeds of 2Mbps, going up to 10Mbps over 2 copper pairs and 20Mbps on 4 copper pairs. Market-leading network reach means you can enjoy EFM no matter where you are and with simple and realistic pricing and a team of UK experts, you’re in safe hands.

EFM gives you a more up-to-date access method and is an ideal replacement for SDSL or Leased Lines to deliver a solution which is more resilient and compatible with future technologies. Plus, why not harness EFM technology for other networking solutions, such as IPVPN.


We’ll deliver EFM over two or four copper pairs, giving you the choice of a more resilient option on the first mile. This assures business continuity in the unlikely event of a disaster - should one pair fail, service will continue on the other pair, ensuring that service is never lost. And you can rest assured that should there be no connectivity then we will have your service up and running in no time, with our 7 hour service level promise.

Cost-effective and flexible

EFM will allow you to use as much available bandwidth without any extra charges. What’s more, we provide more capacity for less pairs, of higher quality, when compared to competitors. EFM is an ideal halfway house if you require more bandwidth but not quite as much as Next Generation Ethernet (up to 1Gbps), so you only pay for what you need
