Ethernet First Mile (EFM) is simply a connection from the customer premises to the exchange; the connection is made up of multiple ‘bonded’ copper pairs. Unlike a traditional leased line which uses Fibre, EFM uses bundles of copper pairs meaning lower costs, high resilience and a faster installation time.
Ethernet and EFM services are ideal for customers who require consistently high connectivity speeds, regularly transfer sensitive data from site to site, or have a high demand for uploads and downloads.
Ethernet is now the connectivity service of choice for corporate businesses and public sector organisations that need high performance, flexibility and value for money. If your customer is looking to future-proof their business then these services are for them.
