Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

Ethernet First Mile (EFM) circuits are now leading the way for small to medium sized businesses. It is worth considering Ethernet First Mile (EFM) if you are seeking competitive prices, whilst still enjoying super fast, reliable, business internet connectivity. The many benefits of Ethernet First Mile include:

  • Up to 10Mbps over 2 copper pairs
  • Up to 35Mbps over 4 copper pairs
  • Guaranteed minimum symmetrical
  • Cost-effective
  • Fast installation
  • Dedicated bandwidth – EFM offers uncontended connections so your performance will not be affected by others using the same exchange
  • Reliable connection
  • Currently available to 80% of the UK
  • High upstream and downstream connection speeds

It is ideal for small to medium sized businesses, and those that are growing in size. It’s the perfect way to get faster speeds without the high cost of an Internet Leased Line. If your business relies on the internet, then EFM can give you peace of mind with connectivity and service level guarantees. Because Ethernet First Mile benefits from bonded pair cabling, it is immensely robust; if one copper pair fails, the others remain live which means you don’t lose connection and can continue operating until full service is restored.

If you opt for EFM with Midland Telecom Networks Ltd, we can have you up and running in no time at all. This is because it uses the copper lines that are already in the ground, rather than the fibre optic cable used for other Ethernet services, saving you money and reducing installation times.

At Midland Telecom Networks, we are amongst the best in the industry when it comes to business communications and business broadband services.
