VoIP, IP CCTV, Video Conferencing, Cloud Computing and Data Backup to the Cloud all rely on a stable internet connection.

RJ Cortel delivers best of breed solutions based upon budget, suitability and local availability.

  • FTTP (Fibre To The Premise)
  • EFM (Ethernet First Mile)
  • Fibre Ethernet
  • MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) Networks across multiple sites.
  • Home working connectivity solutions

With such a vast range of options, it is essential that any business firmly understands the differences and which services can successfully be deployed upon them. For example, attempting to run ten simultaneous phone calls and Internet access across a single ADSL2+ connection simply will not work.

ADSL is an abbreviation of asymmetric digital subscriber line which basically refers to broadband through a telephone line.

ADSL broadband is marketed towards passive internet customers who rely on downloads but have little emphasis on uploads. The average top speeds for downloads are usually 8Mb, and the top speeds for uploads are usually below 1Mb.

With recent advances in technology you now find that ADSL services are used as a back up connection should the primary faster service such as a FTTC/FTTP connection or a dedicated EFM connection suffer a service issue.

ADSL broadband is widely available in the UK with coverage accessible for more than 99% of the UK population. As such, the majority of businesses in the UK have ADSL primary or secondary connections.


FTTC/P broadband connections utilise fibre optics to deliver your internet, they both are priced similarly however FTTP will provide you with a direct fibre link to the premise, eliminating the copper of an FTTC connection.

By using the fibre optic links this allows the network to run faster and can then be used to deliver more bandwidth-hungry broadband services.

This means that you are able to get faster speeds, making it more suitable for Internet access in your business. Unlike standard broadband, the distance from your local telephone exchange doesn’t determine the speed you can get.

FTTC and FTTP connections use the same technology (Dynamic Line Management) as standard broadband to give you the best possible service, and the most stable connection.


Ethernet Access is a high bandwidth, scalable, reliable and uncontended access service designed to connect customers to the internet and IP telephony platforms. Ethernet Access delivers premium quality voice and Internet products over a consistently available transport service. Each service is protected by a Service Level Agreement covering service performance, availability and time to fix.

The service configurations available over Ethernet Access comprise of:

  • Internet access only: a single Ethernet connection between the end-user and the internet
  • IP telephony only: a single Ethernet connection between the end-user and IP telephony platform, where the Ethernet connection delivers IP telephony.
  • Converged internet and IP telephony (Converged Ethernet Service): where a single Ethernet connection provides both connectivity to the internet and IP telephony services

With the option of ADSL or FTTC as backup, RJ Cortel can provide you with a truly resilient service.
