EFM FAQ'S

What is EFM?

EFM, also known as Ethernet in the First Mile, is an Ethernet leased line service that runs over copper rather than the fibre optic cable used for other Ethernet services. The copper is provided in bonded pairs, making the connection extremely robust. If one copper pair fails, the others remain live, meaning you don’t suffer any downtime and can continue working with reduced bandwidth until normal service is restored.

What are the benefits of SoConnect EFM?

  • Dedicated symmetrical bandwidth
  • Uncontended 1:1 service
  • 99.99% uptime
  • 6 Hour SLA

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.

How does EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) work?

The service is delivered via bonded copper cables (pairs). Higher bandwidth is achieved by installing more copper pairs. We offer the most bandwidth the network can deliver at any given location and regularly exceed it.

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 many IP addresses does the EFM service offer?

Four IP addresses are allocated as standard, two of which are useable. You can apply for additional IP addresses at the time of order for a one-off fee of £100.

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. Our SLA for EFM at SoConnect is a 6 hour guaranteed fix. We have a network of engineers nationwide who can be routed to site within 2-3 hours if required.
