Ethernet Access Direct 

Ethernet Access Direct allows your business premises to be connected to the TalkTalk Business network over end-to-end fibre. It can be delivered on 100Mb or 1Gb bearer circuits but you only need to use the bandwidth that’s right for you, which means greater flexibility for your business. Our extensive network offers many advantages.
