What is Ethernet First Mile?
In simplistic terms, Ethernet First Mile (EFM), is a dedicated internet solution which uses multiple copper wires instead of fibre.
It’s ideal for businesses where full leased line Ethernet isn’t yet available, or for those who don’t have the budget for out for a full-fibre option.
As well receiving speeds up to 35Mbps and ‘distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection as standard, the fact that it’s dedicated, means that your business will have sole access to the network, putting you in total control.

How is broadband speed measured?Broadband speed is measured in Megabits per Second (Mbps). Connect365 always aim to get the best broadband speeds possible.
What factors can affect broadband speed?From time to time you may experience slow broadband speeds. This can be caused by a number of internal and external factors: The length of the line from the exchange or from the Primary Connection Point (PCP) can cause some speeds to be slower than others Not being connected directly to the master socket on the premises Correct filters needing to be used on all sockets relating to the broadband line A fault on the broadband line A faulty router is being used Connecting via WiFi rather than Ethernet Number of people sharing the bandwidth internally One-off, high-usage events such as Microsoft/Apple updates – a large number of people connecting at one time Electrical interference from other devices in proximity to the connection Peak time congestion – may experience slower speeds during the evening when more people are connected The processing speed of your device, router or modem The quality of the wiring inside your premises Weather conditions
Do Connect365 offer a speed guarantee?Yes, we fulfil Ofcom’s new Voluntary Codes of Practice on Business Broadband Speed (VCoP) which means you’ll be given more realistic information about business broadband speeds, which will reflect peak times. As part of signing up to the VCoP we’ll also provide an estimated minimum guaranteed download speed, allowing customers to make confident, informed decisions before a sale.
Will I need a new router if I switch to Connect365?Yes, you do but it’s nothing to worry about. With all our business broadband products, we’ll provide you with a free router and a static IP address.
