Ethernet First Mile (or Ethernet in the First Mile) is one of the most commonly purchased types of leased lines, this is because it is the most cost effective. Unlike a traditional Leased Line, EFM mixes new technology with ‘old world’ copper in the first mile which instantly means lower costs, higher resilience and faster installation times.

Elite’s EFM service makes leased lines affordable to all small to medium enterprises whether in town or rurally located, whilst delivering the same quality and SLAs.
