We’ve become accustomed to, and now expect, instant access to the applications we use in our personal and business lives. Any delays in accessing and using these applications, and we’re likely to move on.

With more mobile devices connecting to the corporate network and more people using cloud-based services, your bandwidth is under increasing strain to provide super-fast, always-available connectivity. Network security is also a growing concern.

Our Internet Access service guarantees high-performing, private Internet access. Dedicated 1:1 bandwidth enables people to access applications quickly and use them effectively – without delays, downtime or other performance issues.

Do more with the Internet

A seamless connection to the rest of the world

Open your business to a world of applications

Access and enjoy the benefits of cloud services, Web-based applications, voice and video, cloud, and media streaming technologies.

The Internet Access network can accommodate even the most bandwidth-intensive services and converged communication tools without the frustration of slow response times or data loss interfering with application performance. No more video or voice calls breaking up because of slow bandwidth!

You’ll also be able to store, analyse and share large volumes of data more efficiently than you would when using a conventional connection.

Expand your footprint

Speeds of more than 100 Gbps over multiple cable systems give you a seamless connection to the rest of the world, so you can connect and collaborate with teams across business locations.

As your business expands, in size, location, or both, you can be confident that the Internet Access infrastructure will be able to meet increased demand without this affecting performance.

A really fast, very reliable Internet connection

Direct Internet access over a carrier-grade network

The Internet Access service is delivered over a carrier-grade network. This is the same type of network telecom service providers use to make fast, reliable Internet connections available on a large scale to clients. With Internet Access, you can also provide the same performance and quality of connectivity to your organisation.

Thanks to this carrier-grade network, Internet Access offers the following features:

  • Minimum round trip time (it doesn’t take long for a data packet to get to its destination and come back again)
  • Minimum packet loss (almost all data packets reach their destination)
  • Low latency (there are very few delays in sending and receiving data packets)

A reliable service, guaranteed

The local network is fully redundant and uses a mesh topology, which means it’s spread over a large number of access points – if something goes wrong with one access point, network traffic will simply move to the next one. The international network uses undersea fibre optic cable systems, and we monitor the capacity of all links 24/7, so you’ll always have an Internet service.

Three bandwidth options to support different application needs

Our Internet Access service gives you a choice of bandwidth packages: Classic, Select and Optimum. All you need to do is choose the one that best suits your needs: from supporting important (but not critical applications) right up to guaranteeing that business-critical applications are always available.

Network traffic is unshaped and your bandwidth use is unlimited.

Fast and secure connectivity

Unlike with other Internet access options, we can ensure a synchronous service –high-speed data transfer in both directions which ensures that all of your downloads and uploads happen at the same speed.

All packages offer guaranteed bandwidth under normal conditions and 1:1 contention. Uncontended bandwidth means you’re the only user of that bandwidth; you don’t share it with anyone else. You have dedicated Internet access, and you get to monitor how your bandwidth is being used.

To improve security and minimise the risk of cyberattacks, we have implemented strong distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation services on the network.

Guaranteed availability, fixed costs

A fixed price for each connectivity package you use

Internet Access is a fully managed service that includes solution design, configuration, support, change management and reporting. Determining your exact bandwidth capacity requirements doesn’t have to be a guessing game anymore: you can ensure the optimal performance of applications by downloading detailed reports on bandwidth use, enabling you to make an informed decision when determining the need to increase capacity.

You pay a fixed price for each Internet Access connectivity package you use, so it’s easier to budget for and control your bandwidth costs.

We have service level agreements in place for guaranteed availability, and our expert engineers provide 24/7 support.
