The benefits

Connect affordably to your sites in 22 countries

When you need to connect sites and price is the most important factor, DSL access is an excellent choice.

Cut costs 
DSL access uses a standard telephone line to connect your office to a BT-managed gateway to your global IP VPN. It’s a more affordable option than a private leased line.   

Performance options
Choose a DSL service to suit your performance needs and your budget. With a high quality DSL Premium service the connection is for your use only. And with a ‘DSL plus’, or ‘DSL standard’ service you share the connection with others without compromising security. The speed you get depends on how far you are from the exchange and which generation of DSL your exchange has.

Get flexibility but stay secure
All your traffic is encrypted between your office and our network using the IPSec security standards. We manage the full connection to make sure only authenticated and identified equipment is used.

Use DSL as back-up for your main offices
You can bump up the availability of the connection from data centers or offices that currently use leased lines or Ethernet access, with DSL as an extra back-up connection. If your main connection fails, you’ll still have a secure DSL service to run your most important business applications.

Match access to the importance of your sites
DSL is excellent for small sites that don’t need the high speeds of a leased line or Ethernet access connection to your IP VPN.
