The Benefits of EFM

  • Ethernet First Mile is suitable for providing reliable a VoIP and VPN service, being able to replace traditional leased SDSL technology or leased lines, and is perfect for any SME using cloud-based services or applications.


  •  EFM can, in most cases, be connected more quickly than other forms of Internet services, such as a fibre alternative while producing the same superfast EFM download speeds of up to35Mbps. The cost of copper EFM can also be less than fibre EFM or SDSL connections.


  • EFM is more widely available across the UK than SDSL alternatives, with more equipment being available through more telephone exchanges than traditional SDSL.


  • EFM uses a dedicated connection, which is not shared by other customers. This means you have an entire bandwidth allocation all to yourself, reserved for you, allowing for faster internet speeds and the ability to do more online. From video calling, to streaming 4K video content.
