Nowadays, broadband comes in all sorts of flavors and varieties. This article will help you choose the best for your business.
In order to choose the Broadband That Is Best for Your Business we need to understand that there is a direct correlation between the speed you get and the price you pay. As the price of the service goes higher typically the speed of the service goes higher. The prices for each service are going to be determined by the service provider but for the most part, all the providers are priced within a given range.
Okay that being said let’s break down the different broadband services.
At the top of the list is AT&T Uverse or Verizon FIOS. Both of these services are still being rolled out and are not available in all areas but if you can get them they are blazing fast. Both are carried over a fiber optic line. They do not share the line with other users so the speed you get is consistent. Download speeds are usually upwards of 20 Mbps (Megabytes per second) and uploads are between 3 and 5. This connection is perfect for business as it is a dedicated line and the speed remains the same regardless of who else in your building or area is using the internet.
Cable is a close second on the list as it offers an overall higher brute speed (up to 50 Mbps) but the downside is that you share the line with others in your area. If they use a lot of traffic it “could” affect your speeds. Overall it-s quite a good service but as mentioned it-s not 100 dedicated.
Next on the list is DSL. DSL is a dedicated line that offers fast speeds (up to 12 Mbps). For the price this is a fairly good alternative if the others are too highly priced.
Last is wireless 4G. This form of broadband is new but it-s quite exciting. As long as you are near a 4G tower (see the service provider maps) you can take broadband on the go. This alternative can be used in an office that doesn’t have access to cable or DSL. I hope this helps you choose the Broadband That Is Best for Your Business.
