DIA (Direct Internet Access)

What is DIA (Direct Internet Access) – Leased Lines?


Leased lines are the fastest, most robust and secure internet connection available to any businesses. They provide a dedicated internet connection from your business offices, to your internet providers network. This means that you will not be forced to share the use of your connection with others often at peak times; this is referred to as being ‘uncontended’. With most other traditional connectivity options (even Fiber to the Cabinet – FTTC) the service is shared amongst other users on the network (contended) and will suffer from a range of potential issues such as slow upload or download speed, cyber security and analogue line interference.


Traditional forms of internet access such as ADSL and fiber offer no form of repair guarantees in the event of failure – whereas there are agreed SLA’s with leased line connections, ensuring your business remains operationally efficient at all times.




    How Do They Work?

    Fiber optic technology is predominantly used to provide leased line circuits, as it is the most capable technology available to reliably reach the best bandwidth and speeds deliverable. Within this leased line service, you can choose various speed rates and capacities of 10 M/bits, 100 M/bits, 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps.

    One of the greatest features of a leased line, is its ability to provide symmetric upload and download speeds; example being a 100M/bit circuit – you could achieve 100 M/bits up and 100 M/bits down concurrently, enhancing your business efficiency to the maximum effect.
