What is SoGEA broadband?

SoGEA stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access. It's a new type of broadband connection that allows you to connect to the internet using a single phone line, without needing to have a traditional phone service.

In the past, in order to get broadband, you would typically need to have an active phone line, which could be costly if you didn't use it for making calls. With SoGEA, you can get broadband over your phone line without having to pay for a phone service.

SoGEA works by using a special type of technology called Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC), which allows you to get faster broadband speeds over your existing phone line. It's ideal for people who only need an internet connection and don't want to pay for a phone service they won't use.
