Why should I upgrade my business broadband?

Having reliable and fast internet access is crucial if you’re running a business. Slow or unreliable broadband can lead to lost productivity, frustrated employees, and as a result, unhappy customers. Upgrading your business broadband can provide numerous benefits, including improved communication, enhanced collaboration, and maximised efficiency.

Chrome Telecom want to ensure that our customers have a solid baseline for their business to run smoothly. Here is why you should consider upgrading your business broadband:

Improved Communication

Business broadband allows for faster and more reliable communication between employees, customers, and partners. This includes emailing, cloud-based voice and video calls and online collaboration tools. By enabling more efficient communication, great business broadband can help your team save time and reduce the need for in-person meetings.

Business broadband is more reliable than residential internet, with higher uptimes and fewer interruptions. This can be important for businesses that rely on internet connectivity for day-to-day operations, as downtime can lead to lost productivity and revenue.

Enhancing your staff collaboration

Business broadband can increase collaboration between staff in several ways:

  • Video conferencing
    Fast business broadband allows for high-quality video conferencing, enabling staff to hold meetings and collaborate online. This can be especially useful for businesses with employees in different locations or for those that need to work remotely.

  • Online collaboration tools
    Fast and stable broadband enables the use of online collaboration tools such as project management software, document-sharing platforms, and team chat apps. These tools allow staff to communicate and collaborate in real time, regardless of location.

  • Shared cloud storage
    Business broadband allows staff to access shared cloud storage platforms, enabling them to share and collaborate on documents and other files. This can save time and reduce the need for emailing large files back and forth.

Essentially, a great business broadband network allows your staff to use all of the online tools that they need to work together. This can help businesses save time, reduce the need for in-person meetings, and maximize productivity.

Increasing efficiency and security

Upgrading business broadband increases working efficiency for a business. Employees can get more done in less time. This is especially important for businesses that rely on cloud-based tools mentioned in the section above.

Business broadband packages have enhanced security features that help businesses protect sensitive data and prevent cyber attacks. This can save businesses time and resources that would otherwise be spent dealing with security breaches.

You can also choose additional features such as static IP addresses, virtual private networks (VPNs), and dedicated customer support. These can be useful for businesses that require advanced networking capabilities or require a high level of technical support.

What are some of the best options for business broadband?

Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) and Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) are both broadband network methods than provide high speeds and efficient broadband solutions. They both use traditional copper telephones to a degree. These options are popular choices for small businesses that don’t require ultrafast connection and want to keep costs down.

Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) can offer superfast connection speeds. FTTP uses the latest fibre technology and is routed directly to your work premises. This differs from FTTC which is routed via copper lines from a cabinet local to your premises.

A leased line broadband service offers uncompromised speed without loss in service quality during peak usage times. The above broadband methods can have their speeds compromised when experiencing heavy usage.

If you currently use FTTC or ADSL connections and are looking to upgrade to something faster, we can help you move to full-fibre.

Choosing a broadband solution for your business

It’s a case of weighing up your options and needs as a business. Not every company needs an ultrafast connection speed. However, if you have a large team that uses a cloud phone system or a lot of internet tools, it’s worth considering an upgrade.

BT Openreach announced in 2015 that they would be switching off the traditional copper telephone lines by 2025. So by this time FTTC, ADSL and anything else that uses the traditional copper lines, will become redundant.
