What is SoGEA?

Delivered by Focus Group, SoGEA provides you with everything you need to connect your business to the internet. SoGEA, which stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access, is a broadband service which delivers the same performance and data levels as FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) but it takes the need for the installation of a traditional phone line out of the equation - so the costs fall.

Features of SoGEA Broadband

One line, no PSTN line

SoGEA is a dedicated ethernet line that delivers a broadband connection to business premises but it doesn’t run over a traditional PSTN (public switched telephone network) phone line - instead using the same fibre-based technology as FTTC. So, you no longer need to make two orders, one for PSTN and then a separate ethernet order. SoGEA takes care of it all in a single order.

What is the benefit of a SoGEA line?

Hand with pound coin

Reliable and cost effective

SOGEA gives download speeds of up to 80Mbs, using the same reliable and resilient fibre-based technology as traditional fibre broadband (FTTC). Plus, all SoGEA packages come with an ‘unmetered’ usage policy, meaning you can use as much data as you need, all wrapped up into one monthly rental charge.

Pen and papeer

One supplier, one point of contact

SoGEA is a standalone, broadband-only connection so you won’t need to install and pay for a landline telephone line as well. Which means you only need to place one order, making the installation process really straightforward, and you’ll only have one point of contact for any service queries moving forwards.

Yes, SoGEA uses fibre optic cables from the local exchange to the PCP (the green street cabinets). From the cabinet the service is supplied to your premises using copper cables. Although this “looks like” traditional Fibre Broadband (FTTC), the line coming into the premises is a SOGEA data line not a phone line and therefore won’t be impacted by the PTSN switch off in 2025.
