WHAT IS A LEASED LINE?
A leased line is a service contract between a provider and a customer, whereby the provider agrees to deliver a symmetric telecommunication line connecting two or more locations in exchange for a monthly rent (hence the term lease).
Unlike traditional PSTN lines it does not have telephone number, each side of the line being permanently connected to the other. Leased lines can be used for telephone, data or Internet services and can connect to PBXs.
Typically, leased lines are used by businesses to connect geographically distant offices. Unlike dial-up connections, a leased line is always active.
The fee for the connection is a fixed monthly rate. The primary factors affecting the monthly fee are distance between end points and the speed of the circuit. Because the connection does not carry anybody else's communications, the carrier can assure a given level of quality.
