Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

Widely available broadband service

Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA) is your closest alternative to FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) broadband and is available to order in many exchange areas.

What is SOGEA?

It is broadband, but without the requirement for an underlying PSTN line, which means the connection is more reliable with less chance of interference and instability.

As this is a standalone fibre broadband product without a phone line, calls must be made via an internet-based solution (VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol) meaning SIP Trunking and Hosted solutions are the way forward.

With FTTC being phased out by 2025, SOGEA is the best alternative like-for-like.
