Do you have time to sit and wait these days? No chance! The 100mb video file that has landed in your inbox needs your attention straight away, but you have an appointment that you have to leave for in 15 minutes…so what’s the choice? Start downloading now, wait and risk being late for your appointment or leave it until you get back and not deliver on the video task?
This is a dilemma that faces many businesses every day when running standard broadband, whilst it is true that it can be relatively quick in some areas and that some businesses are not under the same pressure, therefore standard broadband works very well – but for other businesses, time is the essence when dealing with digital files and this is where fibre broadband comes into its own.
If you happen to work in an industry that relies on digital formats, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the frustration that comes with handling large digital files. In many areas of the UK upload and download speeds are at an all time high thanks to the introduction of fibre optic broadband, but so many businesses fail to upgrade because they either don’t know it is available to them or don’t fully understand the benefits to their business when upgrading.
So as a quick guide these are some of the benefits of having fibre optic connected within your business.
• No more waiting!
Standard broadband often delivers average speeds at best, perhaps 1mb maybe a little more? However these speeds can soar up towards 80Mbps. The speeds obtained through fibre optic broadband can have an incredible effect on the productivity of your business.
• No more guess work!
Conventional broadband will often deliver different upload and download speeds. We’ve all experienced that time when we’ve just up-loaded a file in just a few minutes and declared our pleasure across the office, only to be shot right down when the next task of down-loading that big email attachment, gives you the dreaded ‘egg timer’! Well, with fibre optic they’ll no longer have to worry about the guess work on how long it will take as fibre broadband delivers much more consistent speeds in both upload and downloads.
• Future proofing your business…
That’s what fibre optic broadband will do for your business. Ok, so you may be frustrated with speeds and unreliability but from a busi-ness point of view it is all about efficiencies and fibre will not only deliver efficiencies now, but long into the future as your business grows. Fibre broadband is the highest echelon your business can hope to reach in network quality and therefore you can forget that feeling of despair you face each time a large file lands in your inbox and embrace the future.
