    Your price will largely depend on your location, or more to the point how far you are from the fibre distribution point.


    However the prices you have quoted seem very reasonable, as always get three or four quotes.

    Check on the SLA they provide and fix time in the event of an problem, sometimes cheaper providers will skimp.

    Also check they do provide the kit for plugging your route into, fibre modems can be very expensive.

    Happy to assist and provide a comparison for any leased line requirements. As we own our own network there are advantages looking at us.

    Apologies for jumping on this thread, but it seems to be on topic.

    I'm looking for prices to use an existing fibre circuit. The fibre used to be part of the connected schools initiative (not sure that is the correct name), and run by NTL. BT won the contract a while later and changed them to ISDN, thus making the fibre redundant. It is owned by Openreach.

    We would be looking to utilise the fibre to get a fast internet connection. Just now ADSL is woeful in the area. We'd be looking for a 100Mb bearer with burst capabilities, if that is the cheapest way to do it.

    I won't go into all the details here, but if companies would like to quote, I'd be happy to send details via email or PM.

    Best regards,

    Euan

    Also jumping on this thread as I found it quite useful.

    I am currently reviewing my company's broadband providers and I think we may be overpaying currently.

    We have 100mb leased line with a backup line in case the first fails. Our postcode is W1W 8SB.

    What kind of cost should we be looking at for this service?

    Happy to reveive quotes if anyone can provide any.

    Thanks

    Hi I own The Portal Sheffield.
    We are a growing gaming centre and the first in the UK to offer Gaming to all gamer types alongside having the retail within the building to supply the merchandise that the gamers will require.
    We are moving in April 2016 to a new bigger premises 25,000sq ft
    We are looking for an leased line connection to facilitate the LAN gaming events.
    This needs to be a minimum 300x300mb service with potentially 1000mb for larger events (this is what virgin are currently offering us).
    We would be especially interested in a supply from a company via a sponsorship route in return for national and international promotion. We have been established for 2 years and have outgrown the current 11,000 sq ft premises. Please PM me with any quotes or options for providing these services.

    Rather than starting my own thread, thought I would post here regarding some advice I need.

    I've got a quote direct from Virgin for a leased line and the price is subject to a survey. There is a monthly charge and the installation is free. Im a little nervous about proceeding with it because it means signing the contract so see if the installation is free or not but I've been assured that we can back out of the contract if the survey reveals that the 'free' installation' no longer applies. Can anyone shed any light if this is indeed the case and if there's anything I need to be aware of. I have the t&cs which I've yet to study but wouldn't mind hearing from anyone with experience of dealing with Virgin or with the market in general.

    That is standard practise for most carriers Jose.

    While I can't speak for VM's T&C's as a direct customer (i.e. you), certainly in the wholesale market (i.e. us) that is exactly what happens. You contract, and agree a price. The order is contracted and committed, a survey takes place and if the cost of delivery exceeds what has been built into the quote the delivery is stopped and new costs presented. You can then either cancel (penalty free) or agree and re-contract at the new rate.

    Via the wholesale channel, aside from typically being cheaper than direct with VM (due to bulk discounts) some wholesalers have the option of guaranteeing the price with no potential extra costs too.

    All the best, Pete

    Hi @Jose Jimenez,

    Can we provide you with a comparable quote? If there are any ECC (Excess Construction Charges) we present these to you and if you dont agree you can walk away with no penalty.

    We will also beat your current quote by 5%, all we need is your postcode and line speed requirement.

    I look forward to hearing from you...

    Hi Jose,

    Have to mirror what Pete has advised you off here, most providers will allow you to walk away without any penalty's if the survey raises any excess construction charges. (That's our procedure anyway)

    However I am not sure that going to Virgin direct will be the most cost effective way of getting your leased line, Virgin often provide there tier one partners with cheaper pricing than is offered to direct customers.

    Good luck either way & let us know how you got on

    Thanks
    Jamie
