Generic Ethernet Access (GEA)

GEA_IconGEA uses FTTC and FTTP technologies to provide a non-contended path to the Internet. By 2014 about two thirds of the UK will be able to receive this technology. It’s comparatively low cost to install, speedy delivery times, and higher headline speeds compared to EFM make it a compelling option to consider if it’s available in your area. Unlike fibre leased lines or EFM, it doesn’t benefit from symmetrical speeds for uploads and downloads. It comes in three variations with the ultimate speed being determined by the quality and length of your line in much the same way you would expect from traditional ADSL or FTTC. Where it differs itself is in the consistency of speed as it isn’t subject to contention.
