We use Exponential E for our main fibre internet connection and have a BT ADSL for our backup.
We are looking upgrading to a hosted phone system and seriously upgrading our internet to a gigabit bearer.
We need good business continuity so want to ensure our backup line is reliable in case the primary goes down.
I have been offered a package by Expo which includes two gigabit bearers on divergent routes, one using BT the other on Virgin. With an active-passive setup which brings the costs down quite considerably.
My question is this. Would this still be a single point of failure with Expo or would i be better off using another supplier entirely for my backup line?
I like the idea of having both lines being managed by one company for convenience and their reliability so far has been rock solid.
