    GEA is the new FTTC

    ...but this isn't anagrams gone mad...it's FASTER cost effective internet that's great for your business

    Everyone wants a service that's fast and will carry their data wherever and whenever it's needed and, of course, without problems and at a lower cost.

    We know you rely on connectivity...

    Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) or BT's marketing name "Infinity" has been a success and whilst FTTC does deliver a massive amount of data it's still asymmetrical with no service level agreement.

    As businesses become increasingly reliant on connectivity whether to support home and/or remote workers, connect multiple offices or run cloud-based applications a synchronous service is required.

    Gemini delivers a guaranteed and uncontended service with GEA

    General Ethernet Access (GEA) uses the current installed copper between the site and the cabinet, and then fibre to the exchange. GEA then kicks in and connects into the Ethernet core which is the game-changer.

    Best of all? It's designed to deliver reduced costs and high bandwidth performance.

    Essentially all broadband products be they ADSL, ADSL2+ or FTTC, connect to the broadband part of the network. This means that they don’t carry a guaranteed level of service and are all contended to some degree, which in a nutshell means that you will neither get a constant speed or connection. If you have a faulty connection Openreach (who deal all faults regardless of provider) can take up to 40 working hours to repair a connection, as yourself the question could you manage without connectivity for a whole week?

    Gemini Generic Ethernet Access service takes the FTTC service from being positioned within the ADSL arena into the Ethernet arena, with other more expensive products like EFM (Ethernet First Mile) and MIA (Managed Internet Access or leased line), which is supported by a comprehensive service level agreement, guaranteeing both speed and connectivity.
