fibre is best, then leased line.. ADSL is good if you can use a proper mlppp bonded setup.

you may find costs go in the same order.

Fast, Cheap, Reliable.. pick any two.

Leased lines are always better, but it can be costly. Please check, what is your requirement and check with vendor which suits for you. More Important point is how they will provide you support, during any issue.

When decisioning about new Internet connection I would consider following factors SPEED - REDUNDANCY - Service level agreement (SLA ) - PRICE

1. ADSL - 2 lines offer some redundancy  ... As you have people VPN  I would be interested if its symetrical connection speed 11 Mbit is  probably for download direction what is speed for upload (used by your VPN clients), also ask company what SLA they offer

2. Fiber - speed is great but fiber cut can bring long, long downtime... again I would ask about redundancy and SLA offered

3.Leased line - I would be interested if its symmetrical (same speed in both directions)  and again what SLA and redundancy is offered??

Than I would make a matrix with PRICE, SPEED, REDUNDANCY AND SLA... you can weight and compare all values according your priority


good luck

We opted for the leased line which was 4mb both direcntions with 99.99 SLA , it was 5 times the regular ADSL and twice the fibre optic broadband
