What is EFM?
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) is a new technology that can deliver a high speed business-grade internet connection of up to 20Mbs. Backed by a proven and robust network, EFM from PSU offers a high capacity Ethernet service, which is ideal for your business if you’re concerned about the performance of your existing ADSL, SDSL or the cost of your ageing Leased Line services.
Faster connectivity that won’t let you down
Unlike traditional leased lines, which connect to the local exchange using fibre, EFM uses bundles of copper pairs meaning they’re faster to install and offer the benefits of lower costs and higher resilience. EFM speeds are also symmetrical, so unlike a standard ADSL connection, you get the same speeds uploading data as you do downloading. That makes EFM the perfect solution for VOIP, VPN and video as there’s no loss of voice quality, buffering or other latency issues that businesses can sometimes experience with standard broadband.
