What is EFM?
EFM is a lower-cost version of BT's leased line service.

EFM gives you a tough and reliable high-speed business internet connection. But unlike our standard leased line, EFM uses existing copper lines (instead of fibre) to connect you to our local BTnet exchange. This means it's cheaper and quicker to install than a standard leased line.
With BTnet EFM leased lines, you'll get internet access speeds ranging from 2Mbps up to 10Mbps, together with all the benefits of standard BTnet leased lines.
Although EFM isn't available to everyone yet, we're constantly increasing the areas where you can get it.
What EFM could mean for your business
Because EFM uses copper lines that are already in the ground, we don't have to do the - sometimes costly - digging that we'd normally end up doing for a standard leased line.
So, if you are in an EFM area and need a leased line service, you could benefit from:
- Lower cost: EFM is up to 45% cheaper than our standard BTnet service
- Faster installation time: we can get you connected in around half the time it takes for other leased lines
