What is EFM?

EFM is most like a leased line in terms of service delivered in that it offers a fixed speed connection, with no contention and in both up and down directions. The connection is delivered to the customer as a simple Ethernet (RJ45) port.

Instead of being delivered over expensive fiber optic connections EFM is delivered over either 2 or 4 pairs of copper cabling from the exchange. This means costs are fixed depending on the number of pairs required; no more "subject to survey" issues!
