    It would tie in with the providers cloud, your provider would need to route traffic out to the internet.

    so it goes from office A through my leased dsl line to the providers cloud then the provider routes it through the internet to office B??????

    so how can it be a garunteed say for example 10 mbps if it has to be routed through the internet?

    There is a difference between leased and dsl, please make sure you understand that a leased line is generally not a dsl line.

    Because the backbone that ISP's use carry much more than 10mbps across them.

    I think you are getting at point-to-point leased lines keith?

    You also get Leased lines which are there to provide internet access (what SimonD is talking about i think)

    In a similar fashion although they will connect two sites together over a dedicated medium, opposed to the usual xDSL (usually SDSL) over VPN appliances.

    Virgin media have linked two sites of an old customer. Works well..

    Although that is true there are companies that sell leased lines that are infact bonded sdsl lines.

    It is telephone line, like copper wires or fibre but without a dedicated phone number.
