Back in 2001 the then industry regulator, OFTEL, forced the major carriers such as BT to offer leased line connections at wholesale rates to competing ISPs. This significantly opened up the market and was the beginning of the booming Ethernet industry seen today.
The costs of leased lines are significantly lower now and continue to fall year on year, and that presents a challenge for resellers looking to maintain healthy margins. Market competition plays an important part of course, but it’s not the only reason prices have come down and there are still plenty of good reasons why it’s important to offer leased lines and to offer them at competitive prices.
Our new eBook “Four key reasons why leased line prices are still falling (and how you can counter the competition)” explains why this is happening and how you can respond and thus take full advantage of this rapidly-growing sector of the market.
