What is a leased line
A leased line is a direct broadband connection. Instead of sharing a broadband line with your neighbours, like you would at home or generally any other broadband, you rent a single leased line to yourself or your business.
Leased lines are most commonly used by businesses with high-powered broadband needs. Generally with a standard shared line the speed and reliability of your broadband can fluctuate depending on the amount of users that are connected and active on it. Having a standard shared line means slower speeds resulting in slow and unstable broadband.
By installing a leased line for you or your business means that this is not an issue. Leased lines are a direct secure way of accessing stable ultra fast internet and broadband also resulting in a more private and secure broadband system

What is the best speed for your business
Speeds on a leased line are available from 10Mb all the way up to 10Gb (10,000Mb). 2Mbps, 10Mbps and 100Mbps are the most popular broadband connection speeds for a business. The leased lines are symmetric, meaning your download and upload speeds are the same, which is highly ideal for businesses that need to upload data, host a large or multiple websites or let remote workers use your office services.
If you find your business broadband runs slow on essential things like making video calls and accessing data remotely, downloading and uploading files, Maximum Networks with 24/7 customer care and priority fault fixes when things go wrong.
