The cost-effective way to bring your local sites together

What it does

Also known as an Ethernet private circuit, SHDS Connect extends your LAN across local sites without compromising on performance or security.

Control and flexibility

You keep ownership and control of your IP architecture (hosting and routing data across the network).

Reconfiguring the VPN network is simple and scalable so you can flex your bandwidth seasonally and add sites as you grow.

High performance

Because it’s a dedicated optical fibre connection, there’s virtually no latency or delay so you can run time-sensitive applications like Citrix, IP Voice, and video without any performance issues.

Flawless security

When you connect to the internet, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’ll have your very own, dedicated network where security is the number one factor. Point-to-point Ethernet doesn’t get much better than this.

No-hassle guarantees

Tough on-time delivery, repair, and service availability guarantees come as standard. 

If we don't meet these we'll automatically apply discounts to your connection charges or rental on your next bill. No arguments, no fuss.  

A choice of bandwidths

You won’t share your bandwidth with anyone else, so you can use all of the bandwidth you pay for, all of the time. Choose speeds from 10Mbps up to 10Gbps.


Our standard availability guarantee is 99.9% availability.

Optional extras

Resilience options

We have 2 resilience options to choose from.

Resilient Access Option 1 increases the target availability to 99.997% by using a second diversely routed optical fibre cable with hot standby, switching between the two fibres in less than 50 milliseconds.

Resilient Access Option 2 pushes the target availability to 99.998% by adding not only a second diversely routed optical fibre cable, but also separate NTEs at each site. This reduces the potential downtime of your most important sites to just 50 minutes over a 5-year contract.

As well as providing additional resilience, this also doubles the available bandwidth.

If you’d like advice, talk to us about the particular needs of your business.

How much will it cost?

Your cost will depend on the distance between sites, the bandwidth you need, and the length of your contract. You'll get a better deal with a 5-year contract.

Rental prices start at just £2,960.00 + VAT a year for a 100Mbps circuit on a 5-year contract.
