The need for speed; why choose superfast business broadband?
By Will Rowley • 14 Apr 2015
SMBs have until Spring 2016 to claim up to £3,000 for high-speed broadband installation through the Government’s Broadband Connection Vouchers scheme. So the question is: why choose high-speed broadband for your business?
I can’t imagine there are too many people who would disagree that a faster internet connection makes for a faster, more competitive business. But what exactly could increasing your broadband mean for your business?
Increase your profits
If you can offer better services, you should attract more satisfied customers
Go cloud - avoid paying upfront costs for technology
Rather than buying expensive in-house servers and software, with high speed broadband you can access all the technology you need using cloud services and pay monthly instead.
Run servers from your offices
Depending on your business needs, you might not want to move everything to the cloud. You might want to keep some servers on your own premises. With more bandwidth you can do this – and employees can have access offsite too.
Experience seamless video streaming and video conferencing
Narrow bandwidth can make watching video content and video conferencing a real challenge. With fast broadband, you can vastly increase the speed at which you get through video material. And if you have multiple offices, want to cut overheads or simply don’t want to spend so much time travelling, high quality video conferencing can improve communications no end.
It’s not just video conferencing that helps with this. Lync messaging and other new cloud collaboration and file sharing tools mean you never actually have to be in the office to get work done. This can also have the added advantage of decreasing overheads in terms of workspace and keeping the size of your workforce flexible.
With superfast broadband you can take advantage of ecommerce, video conferencing, Lync and all your other cloud apps to help extend your marketplace worldwide.
Choose when and where you work
Sounds nice, right? With a high-speed internet connection and cloud services, it doesn’t matter so much where you work, so you can choose.
De-clutter the office
Free your business from the depressing mess of in-house servers, PBXs, external hard-drives and other onsite kit. With all of their functionality, your processors and software all in the cloud, you can also have peace of mind that your data is backed up safely in the cloud with online server backup.
Be an innovator
Not only does faster broadband keep you up to speed with the competition, it also allows you very easily to take advantage of new technologies that could open up your business to previously unchartered waters.
