Digital Leased Line – What It Is and Why It's Useful To Businesses

Back in the 1950′s, 1960′s and 1970′s a leased line meant a hotline, dedicated old-fashioned analogue telephone line, linking two sites.

However for the past few decades the phrase has come to mean a fixed bandwidth dedicated symmetric digital connection between two sites.

So when people talk of a leased line, they almost always mean a digital leased line. Usually, they mean a point-to-point ethernet circuit.

Need Fast, Reliable Access to the Internet? Leased Line Connection - the Ideal Solution for Businesses

Leased Line Guide – Getting Great Connectivity For Your Business

A leased line is a dedicated, symmetric fixed-bandwidth connection between two sites.

Businesses use leased lines to connect their offices to the Internet, and to connect offices to other offices.

A leased line is a dedicated connection. That means that the bandwidth is reserved solely for use by one company. The connection won't slow down at peak times.

Leased lines are symmetric. They can send data just as quickly as they can receive it. That contrasts with most ADSL connections which offer a fast download speed but a very slow upload speed.
