A leased line is a private high-performance circuit. It usually carries voice and data or both. Leased lines are mostly used for either internet access or used privately between two customer sites Point-to-Point (P2P). Unlike some broadband, a leased line is not contended or shared and delivers dedicated guaranteed bandwidth straight to the internet backbone. A leased line provides guaranteed bandwidth, high availability and is the most reliable connectivity option. A leased line is fully managed and monitored 24x7x365 and supported by a strong Service-Level Agreement (SLA) with a guaranteed fix time and a compensation clause.
