What is a Leased Line and How Does it Work?

A Leased Line is a fibre-optic service that delivers a private, dedicated, fixed bandwidth symmetric data connection. There are a few different types of leased lines that will each deliver a different kind of connection.

But before we get into that, how does a leased line work? Well, it quite simply uses a dedicated fibre-optic cable that connects a location (normally your business office) to another location(s). This cable is private to you and cannot be shared with anybody else, unlike other data or broadband connections.

Leased Lines

Fibre

Leased Lines

These link your office to your ISP (Internet Service Provider), who will then deliver you internet services over the leased line. This is often called a leased line broadband – the main benefit here compared to traditional broadband is that the line is not shared with anyone else, giving you maximum speed.

MPLS

Leased Lines

These are used to connect multiple office locations to a private MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) network to deliver other services. It essentially helps to increase the speed and control the flow of network traffic in your business by ensuring you are making the most of your available bandwidth (and not 'wasting' it).

Types of Leased Lines

There are many scenarios for a leased line, so it can get confusing. Luckily, Trunk Networks can advise you on all aspects of this service.

Benefits of a Leased Line

DEDICATED

DEDICATED

Leased lines are private to you and are not shared with anyone else. This means you'll have access to the fastest speeds as you won't have to share bandwidth.

SLA'S

SLA'S

Unlike broadband, leased lines have very strict SLA's (Service Level Agreements) attached to them. So, in the event that your leased line should go down, it will be brought back in to service as quickly as possible.

SYMMETRIC

SYMMETRIC

Leased lines are symmetric which means the upload speeds are the same as the download speeds.

COOLING

PRICE

As the cost of fibre continues to fall, we are able to deliver 100Mb leased lines from under £210 per month.

FAILOVER

FAILOVER

Although leased lines are great and come with strict SLA's, they do still go down sometimes. That's why we offer our Trunk Networks broadband as a failover option: if you choose this alongside your leased line, we can deliver a 100% site up-time guarantee.

FAST

FAST

Leased lines are delivered over powerful fibre-optic cables, and can reach speeds up to 1Gb/s both down and up.

Is a Leased Line Better Than Broadband?

Leased lines are undoubtedly faster and more reliable than broadband, since they provide a dedicated and symmetric fibre connection. However, leased lines are more expensive than broadband. To find out more about our business broadband solutions, click here.

Leased line installation costs are normally amortised over the rental term. This is why you will typically see zero installation costs for a 3 year leased line, but you will pay installation costs for a 12 month term. After the initial 3 year term, the cost is likely to fall even more as the upfront costs associated with installation and other related services have been paid for in the first 3 years. There are also potentially excess construction charges involved with delivering your leased line, but these aren't known until after the survey stage. If there are excess construction charges you have the option to not proceed any further.
