Uncontended Bandwidth. Leading Support

Our Ethernet First Mile solutions are uncontended. This means that you are never competing with other users for bandwidth – or, in other words, that your connection speed will remain very high at all times.

In addition to consistent speeds, your Ethernet First Mile will use an independent circuit – safeguarding your business from downtime and disturbance. Incoming and outgoing traffic are always treated equally, meaning you will experience synchronous upload and download speeds.
