How to choose the best business broadband
Broadband is undoubtedly one of the most important factors for every business, regardless of size or industry, in 2019. There is a stark difference between commercial broadband and business broadband but with that comes a large variety of business packages so, how do you choose the best one for your business?
First and foremost, we recommend that when you are deciding on your businesses broadband provider and package you choose a provider that specialises in business broadband. This is because business broadband is substantially different to residential broadband that you would use at home. It offers you service level agreements (SLAs) as business broadband providers recognise the importance of a business’s broadband being up and running all of the time. Furthermore, business broadband typically offers faster speeds and better security as well. In addition, it is a more concise market so the packages are likely to be more suited to your business.
We recommend that when deciding on your broadband you first make the decision between whether you simply need broadband or whether you would be better suited to a business package. If you are using your landline often and making a high volume of calls it may be more worthwhile for you to choose a business package which includes your business broadband and your business phone together and often consisting of unlimited calls as well.
Once you have chosen your provider and the type of package you require we recommend looking into the internet speed available in the local area of your office. Many broadband providers can do this on your behalf. We suggest you also check whether fibre is available in your area. Bear in mind that the speeds available will be maximum speeds.
Reliable broadband is a must for all businesses so, once you have chosen your provider and the specific package that best suits you, we strongly suggest you check the SLAs that are in place in order to ensure that your business is properly protected against downtime.

- Web hosting

- Leased phone lines
