FAQ's

Yes.  We can set up the router to offer secure WiFi access, and we can configure this remotely for you.

Absolutely!   Business continuity is a primary use for these direct-connect circuits.  What's more, if you have a number of circuits unused for a period, we can reduce the bandwidth allocated for connecting them to your WAN, saving you money. It takes less than an hour to increase bandwidth when you need it.

Business DSL circuits are typically delivered in around four weeks, but our 4G option will allow connection within days, once your company is set up with us.

Yes!   Our policy is always to be fair and transparent and we work with every customer to get the best price possible, for example by sharing fixed costs across more users.  For customers not using an SAS WAN, we can also flex the bandwidth of connectivity into your WAN to suit your real-time needs. 

For urgent requirements we can provide a single-user number and a desktop and/or mobile phone client.  We also have a range of Hosted Voice solutions.

There are two options:   engineer installation and self-installation.  For both options, the management service will configure remotely once the router is connected and powered up.

If you don't have your WAN with SAS then we will also have to arrange with you a route for home worker WAN traffic to reach your network.  There are a number of options that we can discuss with you.

Of course! We will establish with you a secure connection from our network to your WAN.  This will be used to route the traffic from your home workers.  There are several options available to suit you, and we can flex this bandwidth quickly as your needs change.  The homeworker circuits will, of course, be fully managed and monitored.  You will be able to see their status on your portal.
