Ethernet Flex 1Gbps

In a modern digitally-driven economy, forward thinking businesses like yours are looking for faster and smarter ways to operate, such as through cloud-based services and hosted voice (sometimes referred to as VoIP). If you’re using these technologies over near-archaic copper- based services such as FTTC broadband, you are likely to be frustrated by the limitations they are putting on your business productivity and efficiency.

Game-changing Ethernet connectivity

Ethernet Flex 1Gbps is changing the perception that anything above a standard broadband connection is prohibitively expensive. Not only is it more reliable than the traditional broadband services you may currently be using, it costs less than an average SME business spends on a gas and electricity bill or a single sales person’s company car each  month.

With our CityFibre Ethernet Flex 1Gbps service you have a highly cost-effective full fibre connection that balances exceptionally high speed with price while retaining critical reliability. It guarantees a speed of 200Mbps for both uploading and downloading data and provides an ever-present capability to burst to up to 1Gbps, which is over 12 times faster than FTTC.

So whether you’re driving your business from applications in the cloud, sharing data internally across your organisation or externally with other stakeholders and customers, or enabling IP-based communication across your voice and data platforms - you can have confidence that with our Ethernet Flex 1Gbps service you have the bandwidth you need, when you need it, and in a cost-effective package!

When 'fibre' isn't fibre

Businesses’ connections are often described as ‘fibre’ even though fibre is used in only part of the network. Standard FTTC broadband uses fibre from the exchange to individual street cabinets but continues to rely on an ageing and slow copper connections from the cabinet to customers’ premises. Full fibre overcomes these limitations to deliver a considerably improved customer experience.
