We’re one of the only ISPs to specialise in providing bespoke service packages to our customers, working to understand your unique requirements and bring you services that work for you, rather than just off the shelf options.

Market-Leading Connectivity Performance

We provide truly excellent service across all of our connectivity options, in a few different ways. Many of our connection options are completely uncontended from us to you, while our network has a significant amount of overprovisioning to make sure that there’s enough bandwidth available for all of our customers, which ensures that you get top quality performance even at peak times.

Our network is also designed to be highly resilient, with automatic failover between multiple data centres, which ensures that our customers get truly reliable service all year round.

Depending on the connectivity option you choose, we can often provide Service Level Agreements guaranteeing a certain level of uptime for our customers.

DarkLight - Future-Proof Internet

DarkLight is our latest and most advanced connectivity option, using a unique dark fibre design to deliver truly unmatched flexibility for your connectivity.

Using DarkLight, you’ll be able to receive ultrafast performance at a significantly lower price than other options provide, while our future-proof design lets you upgrade your connectivity at practically any time.

Every DarkLight line supports a fully symmetrical, uncontended 10 Gbps from the start, whether you start out at 300 Mbps or using gigabit connectivity. Call our team today at 0345 145 1234 to find out more about DarkLight.

Ultrafast Leased Line Broadband

Proving secure, stable and secure Internet connectivity, leased lines are a great option for users requiring high levels of bandwidth and reliability.

We offer a huge range of speed options for our leased lines, covering practically every possible speed requirement, all the way up to 10 Gbps, letting you pick the exact level you need. Our leased line services are symmetrical, completely uncontended and guarantee that you’ll always get fantastic performance.

An ideal choice for schools and businesses of any size - call our team to discuss your leased line requirements at 0345 145 1234.

EoFTTC - A Step Beyond

Often the most effective option for those not requiring ultrafast connectivity, EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet) connectivity delivers fast speeds, with a maximum download speed of 80 Mbps, while also providing a few major advantages over FTTC.

Using EoFTTC, you’ll receive guaranteed, symmetrical speeds up to a certain level, along with the ability to go beyond this guaranteed level where possible, giving you a useful baseline reliability for your Internet connection.

EoFTTC is ideal for small business, primary schools and many secondary schools. Call us today at 0345 145 1234 to find out more!

Fibre to the Cabinet Connectivity

Delivering an effective 80 Mbps download speed at maximum, along with 20 Mbps uploads, Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) connectivity offers faster and more stable performance than ADSL.

Widely available across the UK, FTTC is an effective step up from basic broadband connectivity for smaller businesses and many schools, accommodating for a wide range of requirements.

With a highly provisioned, reliable and failover-ready network powering our services, you can be sure of always getting fantastic performance when using FTTC services from Exa.

ADSL Internet Connectivity

The most widely available option for broadband, ADSL can provide 20 Mbps download speeds (and 2.5 Mb uploads), while our highly provisioned network ensures that you get great service at absolutely all times.

ADSL is a perfect choice for particularly small businesses and primary schools, along with those with low student numbers and few Internet-enabled devices.

Testing Your Internet Speed

Whether you’re currently using connectivity from Exa Networks or another ISP, it’s important to know how your connection is performing.

We’ve worked with market-leading speed tester Ookla to give you a useful testing tool, connecting to our servers for as accurate a speed test as possible.
