A dedicated connection for your office
Leased lines are the perfect way to link your office to the Internet, to other offices and to hosted servers.
Leased lines offer high bandwidths and fast upload speeds. Being uncontended, they won’t slow down at peak times. They’re also unmetered, sparing you from download limits or ‘fair usage’ restrictions.
We compare wholesale quotes from the UK’s major network operators to find the best value option per site.
We pick from all the UK’s major operators, including BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk, to connect you to our own MPLS network.
Bandwidths from 2Mbps to 10Gbps.
Fibre-optic and EFM options.
Contract flexibility (1–5 years).
Our UK-based technicians are on hand, day and night, to help keep everything running smoothly.
We proactively monitor your circuit 24x7, ready to nip in the bud any potential issues. Our service can be fully managed and is backed by rigorous SLAs too.
Calls can be prioritised over other network traffic by our QoS-enabled MPLS network.
We offer FREE installation on contracts of three years or more.
hSo’s processes are certified by ISOQAR for Quality (ISO 9001) and Information Security (ISO 27001).
We can combine leased line circuits from several carriers to deliver unusually high levels of uptime. If there’s a problem with your main circuit, your network automatically switches to a backup connection.
We can deliver the leased line as part of a wider solution, for example one that incorporates Internet Access and a WAN.
