So you need to set up a new server to support the business. Maybe for a new company office. You look at outsourcing and immediately to see a world of minimum term commitments and on-going payments for servers that you’ll never own. No, no no, not for you. Far better to buy the hardware you need outright, one single payment and then the servers are sitting pretty in your office, right to hand if ever you need to work on them. You feel good with how much money you’ve just saved.

Which Business Model is Best for Your Business?
Fusion’s Partners and Resellers are reaping the rewards of competitive rates for Ethernet and EFM services but, if you’re thinking of joining them, which platform (Referral or White Label) is best for you?

EFM now confirmed as Fusion’s key SDSL upgrade product
Ethernet First Mile (EFM) is now available from Fusion at over 600 key UK exchanges. Based upon existing SDSL technology, EFM offers extended symmetric bandwidth of 4Mb,6Mb 8Mb or 10Mb.
