EFM stands for Ethernet in the First Mile. It is an affordable way to get greater symmetric bandwidth that Broadband can’t offer. It is an uncontended line delivered over copper and can support VoIP and Hosted solutions many businesses need. It is delivered using copper lines, an on-site box then bonds them into a single Ethernet service, making it easier and more reliable for you.

SME’s who need Business grade SLA’s
What is EFM?
Voip Unlimited can provision EFM (Ethernet First Mile) circuits from diverse Tier 1 network carriers, allowing business customers access to reliable internet and SIP Trunk services, backed up by a full performance and repair Service Level Agreement. EFM works by aggregating copper phone lines together and presenting Ethernet to the business’s local network.
The price point is generally lower than fibre based Ethernet services allowing users a more cost effective access option with a business grade 6hr SLA over Broadband based products. As copper line services are often easier to deploy and configure than fibre services; installation lead times are lower and costly, excess construction work is not required. Multiple bundled lines also provide an added resilience should one of the copper pairs fail.
We have found that when combined with our SIP trunking service EFM provides an excellent alternative to ISDN30. Rentals are lower and the circuit allows for immediate channel expansion without the associated increase in costs.
Why choose Voip Unlimited as your EFM provider?
With EFM, Service Level Guarantees are included as standard and being one hop away from our VoIP Core, customers won’t experience packet loss or loss of voice quality as all IP packets completely bypass the public internet. EFM now has wide availability throughout the UK.
