What is Dedicated Internet Access?
Accessing the internet can be done by wired or wireless methods.
Wired internet access is typically provided in the form of cable or fibre. These systems use either a shared or dedicated copper or fibre line. The connection typically runs from a local exchange to your property via a broadband cabinet. It is also possible to get a faster service by running the line directly from the exchange to the premises which results in a faster connection.
A dedicated internet service is when you do not have to share either the fibre optic or copper cable with other businesses, it is for your sole use.
Wireless internet access is typically provided via 4G, 5G or Satellite networks. When it comes to getting your property connected to the internet, choosing a wireless or wired connection depends greatly on the location of the property. Having a dedicated wireless network means the internet access is for the dedicated use of one property.
What is the difference between broadband and dedicated Internet access?
Typically a dedicated internet connection is a fibre connection that runs from the local network exchange directly to your premises. If your business is in a suitable location to have a dedicated fibre connection, this is one of the most efficient methods at guaranteeing a superfast business internet connection.
A leased line is a type of dedicated internet service. It is a point-to-point connection between two locations, and it provides a guaranteed level of service. This makes it a good choice for businesses that need reliable connectivity. A leased line provides fibre optic that is used only by your business. This means you will have the fastest internet possible and you won’t have to share it with any other businesses.
Unlike FTTP, a leased line connects directly to the internet over a dedicated fibre optic cable; there’s no sharing of infrastructure as there is with FTTP. They offer symmetrical upload and download speeds.
FTTP – Fibre to the Premises
FTTP refers to a wired connection that is wired directly to your premises from the exchange. FTTP uses fibre optic cables. Fibre optic cables transmit tiny pulses of light which, as light is the fastest thing on earth, means they deliver a high speed business internet connection. FTTP services run directly from the exchange straight to your premises. An FTTP service typically provides the fastest upload and download speeds to a property (except for a leased line). FTTP is typically five times faster than ADSL services.
FTTC – Fibre to the Cabinet
Fibre to the cabinet means that fibre optic cables are used directly from the exchange to your closest broadband cabinet. A copper wire then delivers the internet from the cabinet to your premises.
ADSL – Copper Wires
Basic broadband access requires a copper phone line connected to the exchange. Telecommunications companies throughout the UK have been working on gradually replacing all copper wires in the ground to fibre optic ones to make the connection faster.
ADSL comes from your local exchange via the old copper wires. ADSL is currently one of the most outdated connectivity methods, and we would recommend accessing a fibre connection whenever possible to achieve faster download and upload speeds for your business internet.
Is Dedicated Internet Faster than Broadband?
Dedicated internet access provides the highest level of performance. Using a dedicated internet access provider guarantees superfast internet for your business. It is the perfect way to link your business premises to the internet, to ensure you have the reliable solution your business deserves.
When you use dedicated internet connections, bandwidth is not shared with other users. Speeds are guaranteed and won’t slow down, even at peak times. If you have a dedicated service, you can be sure you will constantly remain online with high bandwidths and fast upload speeds.

This means that you’ll experience faster load times for websites and applications, which can result in improved productivity and efficiency. Additionally, having a dedicated connection will ensure that your bandwidth is never maxed out, meaning that you’ll always have enough capacity to get the job done.
Having a dedicated connection means your internet speed will be much quicker than a shared connection and your business will be more productive by not having to rely on outdated connectivity methods. If your business uses cloud based applications such as Salesforce or Office 365, then having superfast speeds will save you and your staff tons of time.
