Generic Ethernet Access



Generic Ethernet Access uses FTTC and FTTP technologies to provide an internet connection with a set SLA that’s dedicated to your business. Compared to other dedicated connectivity options, it offers a lower installation cost and quicker installation, but also delivers strong internet speeds.

Generic Ethernet Access (GEA) or Ethernet over FTTC (EoFTTC) is a new addition to business internet technology that bridges the gap between leased lines and traditional broadband. Using FTTC (fibre to the cabinet), it enables businesses to enjoy the benefits of wide area ethernet services without having to pay for the laying of expensive fibres. It can be ready to go within under a week (if you’re lucky, normally 21 days!) and comes at a fraction of the cost of many other connectivity solutions.

GEA/EoFTTC is delivered over the BT Network and is built on VDSL technology, delivering speeds of between 1Mb to 20Mb. Choosing Generic Ethernet Access through LMS offers a range of benefits
