Leased lines give you a direct fibre or copper ethernet connection from your business to another office location and/or to your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The connection is not shared with other users or businesses in your area, and you therefore get the full data bandwidth all of the time. Contended broadband circuits suffer reduced performance due to sharing that takes place within the network, and leased lines offer a reliable and higher quality connection.

What Are Leased Lines?

Contended broadband circuits suffer reduced performance due to sharing that takes place within the network.

Upload vs Download


Our leased lines are fully synchronous.
Unlike broadband ADSL connections, upload speeds are the same as download speeds.

Faster Than ADSL


Faster Than ADSL

Our internet leased line services are available in a variety of fixed bandwidth speeds from 2 MB/s to 1 GB/s. The services have zero contention, and therefore the bandwidth speed is guaranteed.

Why Not Use Bonded DSL?


Why Not Use Bonded DSL?

Bonded ADSL and DSL services typically share the connection to the exchange with other businesses and users in your locality. Bonded DSL increases the maximum bandwidth available, however the increase is minimalized particularly when the ADSL contention ratio is high. For instance, a 20:1 Bonded ADSL delivering 10 MB/s can potentially be reduced by a factor of 20 if all users are connected simultaneously. In a 20:1 contended case your ADSL would at times only deliver 500 kb/s.

Save Money, Go Faster


Our leased line services are available in a variety of fixed bandwidth speeds from 2 MB/s to 1 GB/s. Leased lines have zero contention, and therefore the bandwidth speed is guaranteed. Use our service to increase your leased line bandwidth and our low costs will allow you to reduce your leased line rental at the same time.

Support For VoIP


Support For VoIP

Our Internet Leased lines can support business telecoms services such as VoIP between phone systems and SIP Trunks. Zero contention also means that you can guarantee voice quality far better than with business ADSL lines, and the low bandwidth of VoIP calls will not effect the overall operation of data traffic.

Upgrade your Broadband VPN


Ethernet First Mile (EFM) connections provide high quality uncontended connections for site-to-site access up to bandwidth speeds of 100 MB/s.

Our EFM VPN connections use the same secure VPN technology as broadband VPNs, however they do not operate via the internet or suffer from contention or shared usage and have higher broadband bandwidth speeds with synchronous working in both directions.

What's more, you can use your EFM VPN link to access the internet, removing the need for existing broadband connections.

Contended broadband circuits suffer reduced performance due to sharing that takes place within the network. Ethernet First Mile leased lines have a direct ethernet connection from your business to the local telecoms exchange. The connection is not shared with other users or businesses in your area, and you therefore get the full data bandwidth all of the time.

Already Using Megastreams?


You already know that Megastream leased lines are the best option for connecting business locations and computer networks. Our leased line replacement service allows you to continue to benefit from high performance data links, but with much lower rental charges and/or improved leased line performance.

They allow you to extend your computer networks and telephony systems as part of a corporate business communications structure. The leased line connection is dedicated to your business and is not shared with other users or companies in your area, and you therefore get the full data bandwidth all of the time.

Leased Lines for VoIP


Leased Lines for VoIP

VoIP calls use a very small amount of data bandwidth. The maximum bandwidth requirement is around 64 kbps for a top-quality VoIP call, however many VoIP calls use less than half of this. So why do so many VoIP and internet calls sound so bad?

The issue is QoS - Quality Of Service. It's important to ensure that QoS exists on a computer network, otherwise there is a risk of VoIP calls sounding broken or being cut off entirely.
The high quality and uncontended nature of Leased lines ensures a fixed bandwidth for VoIP, which helps QoS, and makes leased lines ideal for voice traffic across data networks.
