We provide at Internet Access packages suitable for all end user requirements and budgets that make use of the most appropriate connection method.
There are a number of different ways that you can connect to the Internet:
Leased Line. If you need a service to run your own website, FTP and or Mail Servers then choosing a dedicated lease line is probably the answer for you.
Leased lines provide the ultimate in 'always-on' connections to the global Internet, giving you a permanent connection and unrestricted, fast accesswith sufficient bandwidth to handle any requirement.
It is suitable for companies who transfer large amounts of data across the internet or who are taking advantage of the VPN (Virtual Private Network) capability to connect remote users with the main office.
IT Telecoms can provide a full range of leased line facilities - from a 64kbps Kilostream up to a lightening fast 34 Mbps DS3.
At these levels of activity reliability becomes crucial and to this end our business partners, Scotland On Line can provide a leased line with a managed router that is configured to provide BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) routing - . This permits your business to have multiple connections to the internet, providing an unrivalled degree of resilience.
Bi-directional Satellite. If you are in an area where DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is unavailable or the cost of a leased line is prohibitive then this may be your answer. Bi-directional Satellite can be an effective alternative to a leased line.Top of Page
Uni-directional Satellite. Less cost than Bi-directional Satellite. This option gives quick download speeds but slower upload speeds due to the upload having to rely on an alternate connection (possibly a dial-up connection to the provider).Top of Page
Broadband. This is relatively inexpensive and fast internet connection method.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) allows data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines whilst allowing simultaneous use of the telephone (unlike Dial-Up). ADSL is said to be asymmetric in that it is much faster receiving data (downstream rate) than when sending data (upstream rate) - the actual transmission rates vary dependant upon the package contracted for.
In order to be capable of receiving ADSL you must:
Dial-Up. This is an on-demand dial-up connection via a modem to an ISP (Internet Service Provider) who allows access to the Internet.
The modem (generally a 56kbps internal/external modem) connects your PC/MAC to the ISP via a normal telephone line - a consequence of this is that the line is unavailable for voice calls whilst the internet connection is active.
IT Telecoms has two options on offer:
IT Telecoms Standard Dial-Up includes:
IT Telecoms Flat Rate Access includes:
