EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) gives a business many of the advantages of a leased line but without the associated costs.

It effectively uses a direct copper line connection from your business to the telephone exchange.

Pro-Networks provide a range of EFM options to help businesses balance demand for resilient and synchronous bandwidth with cost effective investment and peace of mind.

Our EFM solutions use between two and eight copper pairs to deliver synchronous Ethernet speeds from 2Mbps to 35Mbps to serve businesses which are ideally situated within 4.8km of the serving exchange. The bandwidth requirement and the distance between premises and the serving exchange will determine the number of copper pairs to be used. With an installation time from as little as 22 working days you can be up and running faster than implementing a leased line. Pro-Networks EFM solutions include backup options, receive 24/7 UK based

technical support and guarantee a return to service within 9 business hours in the highly unlikely event of a failure.

EFM takes business broadband to the next level as it enables the support of IP VPNs and VoIP as well as hosted cloud services, yet remains a cost effective alternative to leased lines together with the added benefit of shorter installation times.
