We offer a variety of connectivity options for businesses, here at CNS. These include; ADSL, ADSL2+, ﬁbre broadband, GPON Ethernet, ﬁbre Ethernet leased lines and 4G. We oﬀer up to 10Gb/s circuits from all the major UK carriers.
With up to 8Mb/s downstream speeds and up to 800Kb/s upstream speeds, ADSL is a broadband connection that makes use of the existing copper cables between the exchange and your premises. This means that the closer you are to the exchange, the more stable, and fast, your connection will be. However, this can be adversely effected by distance, so this might not be the best option for businesses that are further away from the exchange. ADSL broadband is usually installed in around 10 working days.
This is the same kind of service as ADSL, but this broadband connection offers up to 24Mb/s downstream speeds and up to 1.4Mb/s upstream speeds. Again, this uses the existing copper cables, and this brings the same drawbacks as previously mentioned. ADSL2+ broadband is usually installed in around 10 working days.
This is a high performance broadband connection, providing up to 330Mb/s downstream speeds and up to 30Mb/s speeds upstream. This uses ﬁbre cabling to the street, which allows for higher speeds and more stability, as the copper distance is greatly reduced. This means FTTC broadband is a great option for businesses looking for a more reliable, faster connection. Fibre broadband is usually installed in around 10 working days
GPON leased lines
Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) is cost-eﬀective symmetric internet connectivity in 1Gb/s and 500Mb/s variants. It sits between hybrid ﬁbre/copper or FTTP broadband and dedicated leased lines, and the bandwidth is shared on a 5:1 contention with a throughput guarantee.
Ethernet leased lines
This offers dedicated internet access, available in 10Mb/s to 10Gb/s speeds, suitable for a range of options, including direct access, MPLS VPNs and point to point connections. Circuits are available from all the major carriers and for competitive rates. There is no connection fee on 3-year contracts and each circuit comes with a managed router.
