Obviously, this technology is only available if FTTC is available in your area. A leased line is a totally uncontended service so the speeds advertised are the speeds you get so you really need to weigh up what is best for your business as prices for leased lines are dropping all the time. With a technology capable of gaining up to Mb download and 60Mb upload speeds, you are sure to have enough for all your needs. With a Bonded FTTC service, if one of the lines fails then the router will automatically failover onto the remaining lines taking the negative line out of the equation. You speeds will be slightly reduced but at least you are not hard down. With a leased line it can take an average of 65 working days to install with no guarantees. All we need is a telephone number and a postcode and we can do a quick check for you. One of the main benefits of bonded fibre to the cabinet are the speeds. If you then take into account the cost implications of this and compare it to a leased line then it does look a very attractive proposition.

The new FTTC circuits as based on BT rolling out fibre optic lines between their telephone exchanges and the little green cabinets in your street where your lines connect. We bond FTTC lines together to give even faster internet speeds, and increase the resiliency of your connection. We believe that no business-grade internet connection should comprise of only one line, which is why we provide bonded internet connections. FTTC may look like more than enough bandwidth for your business to run but even if you think that a single FTTC link will cope with your bandwidth requirements now, what about the future? By having a bonded FTTC connection you are ensuring that you cope with unplanned downtime on one of your circuits, and that you have enough bandwidth to cope with sudden business changes. You can also be assured that whatever connection you have with CIM-VCF, you can upgrade with more and more lines and faster and faster technologies. If you still need more bandwidth, then let us know and we can install more FTTC lines into your bonded internet connection!
These are the dark green, metal, roadside cabinets that supply telephone and broadband lines to nearby businesses and consumers. There are now diverse circuit technologies with acronyms beginning FTT Fibre To The… which differ considerably in nature. As explained above, FTTC involves moving the termination point of the DSL lines closer to the customer, shortening the run of copper and increasing the speed of the connection. Sadly, fibre broadband has been over-hyped and sold as the answer to all internet access problems. This page sets out the differences between FTTC as an access technology and older circuit types like ADSL, showing that it is also a DSL based copper access technology with many of the same issues and characteristics. Services marketed under the two different names are essentially the same, though. VDSL only supports 55mbps downstream and 3mbps upstream. VDSL2 aims to increase the speed of the line by using high frequencies, which only work on shorter runs of copper. However, the same method of distributing bits into bins or channels remains. Discrete Multi-Tone DMT is a way of modulating the line so that multiple frequencies are used, avoiding noise and interference.
With the Velocity Lite, we can provide customers ultrafast data access of speeds up to Mb, enabling them to harness the benefits of the cloud and to prioritise critical data and services with true Quality of Service. Many businesses now need to enhance the speed and resilience of their data services because of their dependency on critical cloud based services. The Velocity Lite can help them deliver this. On the surface this may seem like a good solution, but bonding multiple lines together is nothing new in this industry and the approach does have a number of pitfalls.
