Why should we consider Glide for a Leased Line or FTTP?

Glide Business is probably the fastest growing choice when choosing a Leased Line of FTTP connection.  Their ethernet and FTTP solutions offer amazing, all-round value and are normally suitable for SME businesses with up to 100 members of staff.

The nearer you are to a town or city, the lower the cost and the more chance there will be of a viable route to get Glide Business service into your building.  Their list of connected cabinets is also growing daily, connecting more and more businesses to their network.

Glide Business Leased Lines now cover the majority of major cities but there will always be problem areas which may require the exploration of other technologies or Leased Line suppliers.

How long does it take to install a Glide Leased Line?

There are a number of factors that can impact the time it takes to implement a Glide Business Leased Line so while we indicate that it will take on average 60 working days, in reality this will depend on the outcome of any site surveys we conduct and whether any works are needed that will require the input of outside agencies, such as local councils or landlords.

The good news is that as we manage the provisioning process of your Glide Business Leased Line ourselves. Your dedicated account manager along side our provisioning team will be able to keep you updated on the progress of the order makes its way through the process up until connection.

What speeds can Glide Business deliver?

Leased Lines from BT Glide Business are able to provide speeds ranging from 10 Mbps right the way up to 1 Gbps depending on the location and the application required by you, the customer!  FTTP services provided by Glide can also reach speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

Glide Leased Lines are always able to deliver speeds suitable for every business of every size so, whether you you an small manufacturer or a larger business with multiple offices there is always a product available to suit.

The most common product ordered via Glide Business in the UK at time of writing (May 2019) is their 100 Mbps FTTP service but as data hungry applications, software and telephone systems evolve, this will likely rise to the standard becoming 1 Gbps within the next decade.
