Connecting your business
ADSL or FTTC and SoGEA
Plum Communications monitor our circuits and give you ability to view your connection current status and how it has performed historically. You can be alerted by email if a circuit drops connection or becomes busy under load.
Availability of ADSL and FTTC can be a postcode lottery as not all services are available everywhere and speed may vary. We will always carry out an availability check, advise you which services are available and the likely speeds.
You may not have heard of SOGEA, it is ADSL or FTTC without the voice service and is delivered over copper wire to the premises just like the existing telephone line. This makes the product less costly and simpler to manage as there is only one service – data. SOGEA is only available in some areas.
For a faster service choose fibre to the premises (FTTP). This is data only and is provided over fibre to the premises. The national infrastructure is being upgraded by 2025, after that date all new supplies will be on FTTP or where that is not available SOGEA. National carriers have different roll out plans for FTTP and Plum has partnered with them to supply our customers with the best services available at their location.
Leased line or ethernet connection used to be the preserve of large organisations but recent price drops make it affordable to smaller businesses. Benefits of leased lines is that the service is uncontended, faster speed than ADSL, same speed in each direction and a faster fix service level. Most customers take a backup circuit in addition to the primary leased line.
Service is provided by fibre to the premises and availability is generally nationwide. Price is dependent upon carrier infrastructure in the customer location. Plum has partnered with multiple carriers to supply our customers with the best services available at their location.
Excellent customer service, responsive, friendly and provides the solutions you need
a very caring, dynamic, forward thinking company who’s looking to take away your communications head-aches.
