Can I receive EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile)?

EFM availability is dependent on user location and proximity to enabled exchanges. The closer you are to an enabled exchange, the more bandwidth you will receive. We can check availability in your area – please call us on 0333 240 1824 or email sales@soconnect.co.uk.

What contract terms are available?

Our contract terms can run either over 12 months or three years. We also offer EFM as ‘wires-only’ (just the connectivity) or as a ‘Managed Service’ (with a managed router).

Is there a delivery time?

EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) is a service that needs to be provisioned on the local telecoms network. Standard delivery time is 45-90 working days, subject to location. We can check delivery time for your area – please call us on 0333 240 1824 or email sales@soconnect.co.uk.

How reliable is EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile)?

EFM is extremely resilient. If you lose connectivity on one copper pair, the other pairs remain live. For example, on a 4 Pair service, you retain 75% bandwidth if connectivity is lost on one pair.
