The reliability and speed of a business’s internet connectivity plays a pivotal role in its productivity and efficiency's.

In today's digital world, nothing is ever fast enough. No sooner had 4G began rolling out and people had started talking about 5G. Businesses desire to communicate and get answers instantly - real-time collaboration is fast becoming the norm. In short, businesses want to operate quicker than they did yesterday. To do this they need a faster more reliable internet connection.

The growth of the internet has driven, E-commerce, Social and Digital strategies and Cloud services, which have revolutionised the way we promote and operate our businesses online.

The use of "The Cloud" in business is massive, many organisations have used hosted email services like Hosted Exchange, Office365 and Gmail for years now, and are hooked on the anywhere, anytime, any device mantra these products live by. In this digital era that live, we are now eager to exploit the cloud's - always on availability for other aspects of our businesses, like data storage (Box, SharePoint, Gdrive), Business Software (CRM such as Netsuite, Sage and Salesforce) and of course IP telephony (SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX).

Without scaremongering - it would be very safe to say that without reliable internet connectivity that modern businesses would grind to an abrupt halt! So given that modern businesses depend on being online, it may seem strange that many of these organisations seem happy to select their broadband package on price alone - strange but true

Certainly, the advertising of broadband products for the residential market – with its fixation on monthly price, will have an effect on the mindsets of businesses when it comes putting a value on these products and services. One thing to consider is it might be inconvenient not being able to stream a movie at home, but if you couldn’t get access to telephones, email or internet at the office it would be slightly more of an issue.

I have prepared a proper summary of the options available for your consideration, when connecting your business to the internet. I have explored the differences between Broadband and Ethernet and give you some food for thought to consider why buying a cheap package could prove to be a false economy.
