Getting Your Business Online

When it comes to data, you demand quality in the form of high bandwidth and fast connections. We’re here to help you design, cost and implement connectivity solutions that meet your needs – regardless of whether you’re a business or a consumer – from straight-forward Internet access to complex multi-site resilient networking solutions with built-in data security.

As we have grown to be dependent on being connected to the rest of the world, every modern-day business is aware of how critical it is to have a reliable broadband connection.

The development of mobile technology and the increasing popularity of cloud-based backup and file storage can make your Broadband planning critical. Data connectivity and broadband services are at the heart of our business and we can develop a range of packages to support your mobile and fixed-line needs.

In this section we have given a summary of the different broadband line types to help with your research, to hopefully give you an initial idea of what solution will be best suited to the way your business operates. Before moving forward with any solutions; be sure to contact our connectivity team for further guidance to highlight what speeds you’ll need to achieve your daily business goals. Please note that the availability of certain line types and the speeds of connections vary greatly due to location.

ADSL Broadband

Often regarded as an entry-level solution – albeit one that’s available nationally – copper-based broadband is an essential part of any ISP’s connectivity arsenal. Ran on either ADSL or ADSL2+, the relatively low cost (both to implement and on an ongoing basis) of standard broadband makes it attractive to the residential market as well as businesses who don’t rely on super-fast download speeds.

Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM)

This provides businesses with the benefits of Ethernet connectivity – reliability and higher synchronous bandwidth – at a lower cost and with reduced installation times. Depending on your customers’ requirements and their distance from the serving exchange, EFM uses between two and eight copper pairs to deliver data to our Ethernet network. And because it’s an uncontended service, your customers won’t have to share bandwidth with anyone else.

Fibre Broadband

Fibre broadband is the go-to choice of connectivity for many because of its ability to provide download speeds of more than five times that of ADSL at a cost-effective price. With fibre optic cables as its core infrastructure, data can travel at speeds approaching light speed which makes it a good choice for small businesses or large households with lots of internet users who need super-fast download speeds at a cost-effective price.

Leased Lines

Often considered the pinnacle of connectivity solutions, leased lines offer fast upload and download speeds on an exclusive connection, enabling businesses to function at the speed that they want to. What’s more, a leased line isn’t synonymous with an Internet connection – it can be used to carry several different types of data traffic including phone calls and internal network traffic.

Generic Ethernet Access

Generic Ethernet Access, or GEA for short, is an entry-level form of Ethernet connectivity that harnesses copper technology between the premises and the cabinet and then fibre to the exchange, before handing data over to the Ethernet network. By utilising copper and fibre as the initial transit technology, costs and installation times are much lower than other Ethernet-based connectivity technologies, but can still achieve symmetrical speeds of 20Mbps.


Often regarded as an entry-level solution – albeit one that’s available nationally – copper-based broadband is an essential part of any IP VPNs that are big for the business. Bringing together multiple sites – including remote workers – onto a single virtual private network is a big win in terms of data security, business continuity and operational efficiency.

What Our Customer's Say

We contacted Phil at Flyford Connect when we were experiencing major problems with our network system.

His response and efficient manner of dealing with the issues was first class. Based on this, we have contracted Flyford Connect to manage all our IT requirements. We are already 5 months into our first years contract and the service and customer-focused delivery is excellent.

The best part for me is that the continual problems we had with our system have gone and what was once a problem constantly raised at our weekly meetings, very rarely gets a mention now.

Phil & the team at Flyford Connect have played an integral part in the expansion of Green Mile Trees IT systems. We couldn’t have done it without them. They have always been there to resolve various problems along the way, big or small. We would highly recommend Flyford and thank them for all their help.


Green Mile Trees

Phil was our main point of contact at Flyford Connect who we contacted when we were experiencing problems with our backup servers.

He is very professional and obviously knowledgeable in this specialist field, as he was able to diagnose the situation and suggest a workable solution almost immediately. Since helping us we haven’t had a single issue with our backup servers, therefore I would highly recommend Flyford Connect.
