The internet service provider your business partners with impacts the reliability and quality of your internet connection. With so many options on the market, it can be tricky to determine which ISP is the best for your business. Here’s a quick look at what you need to consider.
Does the ISP offer a dedicated fibre line?
If you want the best, opt for dedicated business fibre. With a dedicated line, you’ll have reliable and constant uptime on a private (and therefore more secure) network. Your business will also enjoy the additional benefit of added support from the ISP. This option is key for businesses who need uncapped and speedy solutions for both uploading and downloading activities so that there are no lags when transferring files or hosting webinars and online meetings.
Business fibre is designed to accommodate businesses needs. With a growth mindset, your business needs a partner that can grow with you. This is why it’s important to ensure you’ll be able to upscale when necessary to ensure you have optimal access to bandwidth.
The Cost and Reach of the ISP
Two of the go-to factors when selecting an ISP is the availability in your area and the pricing. Location will naturally play a role, but with extensive internet coverage, especially in business hotspot locations, that has become less of a limitation. When it comes to pricing, you can compare the market standards of ISPs. Keep in mind as a general rule of thumb that you get what you pay for and while having a dedicated line is more expensive, the benefits result in greater value for the business. When you’re looking at business fibre packages, be sure to look out for other value add ons, such as VoIP, SLA’s, Security, etc..
