Leased Line Replacement – Your Options, Plus Some Good News

Looking for a leased line replacement? Then I've got some good news. Leased line prices have fallen substantially since you installed your leased line, so you can probably get more bandwidth for the same amount of money you're paying now.

It may take several months to replace your leased line. So, it's often worth getting a bigger connection than you currently need right now, so that as your usage increases, you'll have room to grow.

Virgin Media Business supplies some of the circuits that underpin our leased line services. We also work with BT's infrastructure subsidary - Openreach, plus BT Wholesale, TalkTalk Business, SSE Telecom, Colt, KCOM and Vodafone, comparing wholesale quotes to find the right deal for each individual location.

Virgin is one of our more important suppliers, on account of the size of its network and due to its general lack of dependence on BT infrastructure.

You probably know Vodafone as a mobile network operator, but what some people don't realise is that it's a leased line provider too - supplying big organisations and Internet Service Providers such as ourselves with dedicated ethernet connectivity.

Back in 2012, Vodafone bought Cable and Wireless Worldwide, the more UK-centric part of Cable & Wireless that had been demerged from the traditional Cable & Wireless. This resulted in Vodafone gaining the customers of leased line provider Thus and broadband supplier Demon Internet.
