How does BT leased line work?

I mean, BT Infinity is Exchange, Cabinet then to your home but the line between the cabinet then exchange is obviously shared with other users. Is BTs leased lines a fibre optic line straight from the exchange into your home? And can you even have BT leased line foir a home or is it only for a business

If you can afford it then you can have a leased line to a residential property but it does cost a lot !! The line won't necessarily be fibre optic especially on a longish line.

You can get a fibre optic leased line from many ISP's prepared you are willing to pay the price.

 

Due to the cost per year it is only usually companies who have them. They are totally different to residential FTTP or FOD offerings have a different SLA and provide minimum guaranteed service.

 

A simple Google search for "fibre optic leased line" will lead you to the companies that provide them.

 

Be prepared to pay thousands for the install and yearly cost. If you have money to burn it is the way to go.

Re: How does BT leased line work?

A leased line is a fibre data circuit, that connects 2 or more locations, for a monthly rental charge.It is dedicated so your business does not share the service with other businesses like you would with a broadband line.

A leased line is symmetric, which means you get the same upload and download speed e.g. 50Mbps upload & 50Mbps download.

A leased line is fibre optic, which means you can get speeds in excess of 10Gbps to support your business demands. You lease the fibre hence the term leased line.

You should be able to find everything you need to know in this ultimate guide to leased lines.

You are posting on a five year old thread so you may not get a reply from the OP.

Hopefully it will but as the question has not been asked in five years it might be a bit doubtful Smiley Wink
