Faster fibre broadband can be a boon for businesses of all sizes and sectors, from small, family-run SMEs to larger enterprises.
Here we look at how fibre broadband can help you and the sort of packages on offer to help you find a business fibre broadband package that meets your needs.
While a typical household might have four occupants who may want to use the internet at the same time, a business could have hundreds. Business fibre broadband is tailor-made for multiple users, so it can handle the extra demands placed on it. The result is that you’ll face less slowdowns in service that might mean your staff are less productive.
Business fibre broadband is also designed to support video conferencing and large file transfers, which can be handy if your staff work remotely.
Fibre broadband supports web-based software crucial to the running of modern business, such as payroll/finance, CRM and HR systems.
Fibre is faster. That means you can do more with time and get more out of a working day.
The short answer is no.
On top of the advantages outlined above — such as a much faster connection — you’ll also get all the things that you’d expect when you sign up with a really good ADSL broadband service.
That means you’ll get enhanced security to keep sensitive information away from prying eyes and cloud storage so that you can back up data online and rest assured it won’t get lost if one of your computers’ hard drives fails.
You’ll also get a static IP address. This is what enables you to run a service, construct a website and create e-mail addresses that contain your company/domain name.
Prioritised technical support comes as standard with the best ADSL and business fibre broadband, so if there is a hitch, you shouldn’t be offline for too long.
