Fast, Secure and Resilient Connectivity

We are the ‘always-on’ generation. High speed, resilient and reliable connectivity and networking solutions are at the core of every successful business.

Whether it’s data centre connectivity, point-to-point (site-to-site) connectivity or a fully managed MPLS network that you need, you can be certain that our scalable 10Gbps bandwidth connectivity solutions with guaranteed low latency will meet your requirements.

We’ve made a significant investment in designing, building and managing our own robust and flexible MPLS network to provide flawless connectivity and business internet solutions. And, coupled with network assurance through comprehensive SLA’s, online real-time reporting and 24 x 7 support, you can be sure that keeping your business always-on is our mission-critical priority.

Our Wide Choice of Access Options

Ethernet Access

Ethernet offers symmetric bandwidth at high speeds anywhere in the UK and is ideal for businesses requiring SLA guarantees and QoS for latency-sensitive applications.

EFM technology delivers up to 34Mb bandwidth over bonded copper pairs, and is a good option if you need uncontended bandwidth with a short delivery cycle.

Fibre Ethernet is the Node4 flagship connectivity service. Delivered either through an access partner or the Node4 LLU, fibre offers symmetric speeds of up to 1Gb.


Node4 offers FTTC download speeds of up to 80Mb and upstream speeds of up to 20Mb.

FTTC enables consistently higher speeds than ADSL and shares the telephone line into your building so deployment is easy and fast.

ADSL Access

ADSL remains a popular access method for customers and small businesses as well as a cost-effective resilience option in the last mile. Node4 provides ADSL2+ at up to 24Mb downstream and 3Mb upstream with the option of a 24 hour SLA target. Other ADSL options are available, just provide us with a telephone line and we’ll do the rest.  Node4 broadband access is offered as a business grade technology for public or private networking over a shared telephone line.

M2M Access

To complement our customers’ MPLS networking solutions we can offer 3G and 4G connectivity. M2M typically serves difficult locations beyond the traditional telecoms infrastructure either as a temporary requirement or as a back-up solution.

It’s Our Own Network

The network is built around six main points of presence (POPs) including our three state-of-the-art data centres and multiple Tier-1 Internet transit providers at both Manchester and London. Our privately owned DWDM core provides the high capacity services to which our MLPS network is overlaid. Our multiple locations and use of multiple providers delivers a high degree of resiliency as we are not reliant on one location or provider.

From these locations, we can provide Layer-2 and Layer-3 services between the POP’s and out to customer locations. This uses various access methods such as Fibre Ethernet, Copper Ethernet, xDSL and M2M. Connectivity is diversely routed, resulting in a resilient network infrastructure which can achieve sub-second failover for services delivered over MPLS, in the event of core network failure.
