Bandwidth & SLA

You’ll connect to the second largest network in the UK which is already serving more than 55,000 businesses and public sector organisations.

We’ll deliver your Internet access through Cisco ISR G2 routers and give you a choice of speeds up to 1Gbit/s.

No limits on bandwidth

With Managed Internet Access you’ll only pay for the bandwidth you need.

So if you choose a 100Mbit/s bearer but only need 30Mbit/s of bandwidth that’s all you’ll pay for.

And if demand on your network changes, you can scale up to use the full bandwidth.

But if you want bandwidth liberation, choose our Big Red Internet solution and get full access to all the bandwidth on a 1Gbit/s bearer for a fixed annual fee.

We’ll proactively monitor your network 24/7, giving you the access to our online portal where you can track the performance of your connection.
 
If there’s a problem on our network we’ll receive an instant alarm so we can fix the problem. All your configurations will be backed up so we can respond as quickly as possible.

Always On Connection

Keep your organisation running

Make sure your connection is always on with our resilience options.

Choose two independent connections to our network so if one connection fails, you’ll automatically switch to the other. We have loads of back-up options, including secondary leased line connections, or choose our lower-cost business broadband back-up on ADSL or cable modem connections.

We’re the only provider in the UK with a cable modem back-up option, giving you a connection of up to 50Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s upload.

You’ll also get access to our SMTP backup service as a secondary server to your mail server. So if your primary email server is ever unavailable, our server will continue to receive emails for you. And once you’re back up and running, we’ll forward your emails to your primary server.

Get broadband back-up included as standard and make big savings with our Connectivity Combinations. Find out more.

Everything taken care of

We’ll register or transfer any domain names on your behalf and host them on our primary and secondary DNS servers. And we’ll even ensure that domain name records are kept up to date.

For additional cost, we can also deploy a VPN (Virtual Private Network) in conjunction with your Managed Internet Access so you’ll be able to safely connect your remote sites, workers, customers and partners to your network.

Choose from IPSec or SSL to connect your sites and get a cost-effective private network through your Internet connection.

You’ll also be able to control who has access to your network with our managed authentication services.

Lower the risk of lost or stolen passwords and manage your users with token-based authentication so your network is only used by the right people.
