Having a reliable internet connection is crucial to running a business. An unpredictable internet connection will massively impact your businesses communication and productivity. Fast connectivity is what everyone wants.
How do you achieve this? Leased lines offer fast, uninterrupted speeds with no risk of slowing down from public traffic.
Proudly based in Milton Keynes, Boxx have a team of internet connectivity specialists ready to help you get connected. Boxx have successfully arranged leased line connections to businesses of all sizes in the city, local areas and nationwide.
Don’t get confused into thinking a leased line is only for large enterprises. Large or small, businesses are installing leased lines and there are some key reasons why.
Firstly, lets clear up what a leased line is.
What is a leased line?
A leased line internet connection is a dedicated connection solely for your business. The private line between the business location and the local exchange point provides an uninterrupted, secure connection. With guaranteed high speeds, even in peak hours. Have you ever got home after work and noticed your internet running slowly? During peak times, broadband and fibre can be disrupted, affecting connection speeds.
This doesn’t happen with a leased line.
Traditional broadband works on an asymmetrical connection – meaning upload and download speeds can be inconsistent. A leased line is a symmetrical connection, meaning upload and download speeds match. Crucial for data hungry businesses.
Leased lines bandwidth transmission speeds range between 10mbps and 10gbps upstream and downstream, making it perfect for VoIP and cloud back up.
Benefits of a leased line internet connection
Leased lines have significant benefits for a business.
- It’s fast – allowing the transfer of substantial amounts of data without any disruption to the speed. Whether uploading or downloading the speed remains the same.
- It’s reliable – the line is uncontended and for the sole use of your business. It’s less likely to have downtime. In the event of an issue, repair times are faster. Leased lines come with a Service Level Agreement (SLA), meaning the provider is contracted to resolve any issues swiftly.
- It’s secure – a private line means there is never any interruptions from public traffic – which can create vulnerability. Data corruption and cyber-attacks are therefore less likely.
Who are leased lines for?
It’s not just big businesses that require a leased line. It all depends on the requirements of your business. If you rely on transferring large quantities of data, video editing, video conferencing or experience high call volumes, a leased line is essential.

Also, we’re sure you’re fully aware, like with anything that is ‘private’ or ‘for sole use’ it usually comes at a cost. Leased lines are more expensive. As it’s a complex process, prices can be affected by location, bandwidth, and data transmission requirements. It’s easy to understand why it will cost more when you look at the advantages.
Reliability, speed, and security come at a cost. But, investing in the right tools for your business will enhance communication and productivity.
