Having internet connectivity is essential for most businesses. However, not all internet options are the same. If you’re thinking about making the switch to business fibre, here are 10 ways that it’ll add value to your operations.
How Business Fibre Adds Value
Business fibre solutions are designed for businesses. After all, your needs are different from personal and home connections.
When it comes to connecting with global markets, audiences and even employees, you need a consistent and reliable connection. This means the signal strength needs to be strong and unwavering, and it needs to cater to uninterrupted connectivity for a multitude of reasons, from internal meetings to digital marketing.
- Cyber Security
Using a private connection helps keep the information your business transmits and stores online and in the cloud secure. When your business can seamlessly transfer data without sharing a circuit, more protection is offered. With the benefits of fast fibre, you can bypass the need for bulky and unreliable storage devices.
Bandwidth is an important element to consider, as businesses often need unlimited internet connectivity. You don’t want to have to worry about monitoring your internet usage and reaching data caps. Having bandwidth limits can also affect the quality of visuals and cause delays in the connection. With unlimited fibre, you can host web conferences, stream content, share files, and use cloud-based apps without hesitation.
You’ll often hear that fibre provides internet connectivity at the speed of light. By having fast internet, you won’t need to worry about losing any production time. Additionally, with symmetric connectivity, your business will be able to upload and download at the same speed, ensuring that there are no delays or downtime.
When you have dedicated business fibre, you will have guaranteed bandwidth that you can reply upon. Importantly, this can increase based on your business’s needs. Choosing a business fibre solution that can scale with your business will ensure that your path towards growth is uninterrupted.
Fibre optic cables are more reliable than the copper cables used with broadband internet. This is especially true in the fact of copper theft and general degradation of older systems. When you opt not to use dedicated fibre, you are also relying on a shared network which can pose a security threat and speed that will change based on internet usage by those in the same network.
Most cities in South Africa now have fibre optic internet services available. These connections have increased over the years and it is no longer a new technology. Many business offices therefore have the lines ready to go, making installation a quick and easy process.
- Enhance digitalisation
With so many parts of business operations being digitised, it helps to have internet solutions that can support HD video without impacting the bandwidth. This is helpful for marketing efforts, video conferencing and training, and sales.
- Increase property value
If you’re the landlord, having a fibre-ready premises can increase the value of the property. If you’re renting your office space, be sure to look for that as a feature. Even if it is not fibre-ready, the process of having the infrastructure installed will undoubtedly add value.
- Cost savings
Having fast and reliable internet can help you save costs in so many ways. It enhances value and ensures that there are no connection issues holding your team back.
