A leased line is a dedicated, communications line set up between 2 end points by a telecommunications specialist. Not physical in nature, leased lines are in reality a reserved circuit and do not have a telephone number, each side of the circuit being permanently connected to the other.
Leased lines can be used for telephone communications, sending data as well as Internet services, and provide a much higher bandwidth than existing lines offered by Internet Service Providers.
The main advantage associated with leased lines is the increased bandwidth they provide. As they are sole, dedicated lines any congestion that occurs in shared lines is eliminated therefore the speed of communication (latency) is greatly increased. These lines are usually purchased by large organisations that regularly use the Internet and wish to obtain a faster, more reliable Internet connection.
