However, these Broadband connections are shared with neighbouring homes and businesses, meaning speeds can drop at peak times, and local installations elsewhere can cause unpredictable downtime too.
Plus, you’re limited to the speed you purchase, which is usually unsymmetrical. For example, a 100Mbps connection may seem like a good deal, but your upload speeds may be capped at 20 or 50 Mbps, meaning uploads will take much longer than downloads – not great for remote working!
This also means installation takes months rather than days or weeks, and is therefore usually reserved for larger Enterprises, or those that require a private connection to comply with industry best-practice.
Though occasionally – whether down to seasonal demand, a hiring spree or working with large files – Ethernet Flex will boost up to 1Gbps symmetrical up and down (5x the normal speed and the same as a Leased Line) when you need it, and at no extra cost!
