Ethernet Line Broadband (ELB)

Ethernet Line Broadband (ELB) is an alternative Fibre Broadband connection, dedicating the existing phone infrastructure to data only with broadband speeds not achievable with ADSL.

What is SoGEA

SOGEA (Single Order Generic Ethernet Access) allows businesses to acquire broadband connections independently, eliminating the requirement for a telephone line. It will be accessible in areas currently covered by FTTC, excluding locations with full fiber availability. This ensures that, following the complete shutdown of the analog telephone network, numerous businesses will retain reliable broadband access. This not only meets their connectivity requirements but also enables them to leverage services such as Digital Voice and CloudComms.
