So, the question that has been going around is, what exactly is GEA?
GEA stands for Generic Ethernet Access - a new, inexpensive type of leased Ethernet service. FTTC stands for Fibre To The Cabinet - a fibre optic broadband line standard utilised by BT. Put these two together, and you benefit from Ethernet access, with a comparable level of service to a full leased Ethernet line, at a much cheaper cost.
When it comes to value for money, GEA FFTC is unbeatable. Perfect for SMEs with increasing requirements for their internet connections, but who aren't at the level of being able to afford their own Ethernet line. And there are 2 major plus points when compared to broadband:
1) Stability. ISP authentication can result in blips in the service over time. GEA FFTC doesn't require this.
2) SLA. Lower level broadband services can't compete with the level of SLA offered as standard with GEA FFTC.
Currently, GEA FTTC is being provided by two main carriers, Talk Talk Business and BT Wholesale. Talk Talk calls it EoFTTC (Ethernet over FTTC) while BT calls it just GEA.
Just like all the other services we provide, we don't have a favoured supplier. We offer both services to our customers and we will accordingly advise our customers on the most suitable service with respect to your requirements and budget..
