Most business users are unaware of how much day-to-day activity is conducted over the internet. Emails, web services, office 365, CRM, file storage and backups, VoIP phones and video conferencing all needing to share a reliable and fast connection.
Growing businesses now need to look at improved services such as Fibre to the premises (FTTP) or Leased Lines to cope with all internet connected devices and services.
Which broadband service do you need?
Broadband services are usually unlimited, which means you can download and upload as much as you like, whenever you like with no additional usage costs.
When we evaluate a business’s broadband requirement, we are referring to speed (bandwidth) and having sufficient capacity at busy times. So, we need to evaluate the services consumed, and the number of users to make sure you have the right broadband connection.
Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) Up to 17Mbps download speeds and up to 1Mbps upload speeds – totally unlimited and fantastic for 1 to 5 users surfing the internet and email.
Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL) is typically used by businesses for services such as video conferencing, where upload speed is just as important as download speed.
Up to 76Mbps download speeds and up to 19Mbps upload for when broadband is just not fast enough or when you have 3 users and above.
There are two types of Fibre broadband: FTTC is Fibre to the Cabinet, from the cabinet to your office the service continues over traditional copper wire. Significantly faster than DSL but not as fast as full-fibre (FTTP). Fibre to the Premises is as it suggests, fibre optic technology all the way to your office router.
This is your very own uncontested circuit which enables you to have guaranteed upload and download speeds. Perfect for the fast-paced business.
This is a private connection between you and your internet provider, so remains at a constant high-speed. Also known as ethernet leased line, dedicated line, data circuit or private line.

Top tips when choosing Business Broadband
Compare all the available deals for speed, reliability, and cost. Some business broadband providers offer the cheapest line rental, selling with a headline low cost. However, the prudent customer looks behind the headline at what is or isn’t included and particularly the support offered. It’s worth comparing them all to get the best value for money or asking a re-seller such as Comms Connect to talk you through your options and the support offered.
Ensure your package offers the speed, download allowance and inclusive calls that suit your company’s requirements. Some cheap business broadband deals come with low download caps, for instance, 10GB usage, which may be suitable for the smallest of companies but in reality is unlikely to go very far when split between multiple employees all processing orders and updating your website information & could ultimately cost you more in over usage.
Unlimited business broadband removes the worry of exceeding your allowance. Ensure the speeds are up to scratch too; many employees require plenty of bandwidth.
