Solution Spotlight: Business Broadband

Thursday 31st January 2019

For businesses all over the world, superfast broadband (also known as fibre broadband) is becoming increasingly essential for both data and voice communication.

With conventional broadband and superfast broadband now almost at the same price, why bother switching or upgrading your business broadband? In this Solution Spotlight, Susan highlights 6 benefits of upgrading to superfast broadband.

1. SPEED AND RELIABILITY

Unlike conventional broadband, superfast broadband will eliminate co-workers having to compete for access to slow and limited broadband services. With a greater capacity to send and receive data electronically, files will be downloaded and uploaded faster, and emails sent and received quicker. This means efficiency savings for your business as employees spend less time waiting and more time doing.

2. BOOST PRODUCTIVITY

Enhanced productivity, increased employee morale, long-term savings through reduced travel. All benefits that can be realised by upgrading to faster broadband. By enabling employees to work flexibly from home, or an office closer to their home, superfast broadband makes it possible to keep in touch. Conventional broadband users historically suffered from drops in service or slow connections preventing access to online business systems, video conferencing and communication with colleagues.

3. REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Superfast broadband allows your business to make use of cloud computing, effortlessly and efficiently. This means you have little-to-no requirements for those energy-eating servers.

4. DITCH THE LANDLINE

Superfast broadband will allow your business to take advantage of hosted telephony solutions that offer a whole other range of benefits including:

  • Lowering your costs
  • Making your business more resilient
  • Grow, or move, your business without the expense
  • Free calls and cheaper outgoing calls

5. SAVE MONEY

Unlike conventional broadband, a superfast connection will allow you to take advantage of online data storage and backup solutions allowing you to make efficiency savings in your IT department and from the cost of hardware (such as servers and other in-house support systems).

Businesses can also take advantage of having to travel less to meetings – superfast broadband will enable meetings to be held remotely between colleagues, customers and suppliers via HD video calls.

6. BOOST SALES

Small businesses can now operate fully in a global marketplace thanks to superfast broadband.

We could wax lyrical about the benefits and options for superfast broadband but at the end of the day, it boils down to what’s available in your area, and how much you have to invest.
