These days many businesses heavily rely on the internet to operate. Your location, budget and business needs are all factors to consider when deciding on which type of broadband is the best fit for your company.
As we move further into the future, having a high-speed and reliable connection is essential. Whether you’re a small business in a rural town or a large organisation in a city centre, there is a broadband service available to suit your company.
Read on to learn more about the different types of services and their benefits.
Choosing a Broadband Service
Many businesses aren’t aware of the broadband options that are available to them. Connections like NBN Enterprise, Business Fibre and Fixed Wireless broadband are also often marketed as being for larger businesses, even though there are a wide range of affordable plans available.
When choosing a broadband connection, it’s important to run a service qualification check on your address to find out what services are available and what carriers provide them. This will help you make an informed choice when choosing a suitable plan, as carriers can differ in price for the same service.
Types of High-Speed Broadband Services
NBN is the most widely available broadband service for business and there is a range of connections to choose from. Enterprise NBN is where the infrastructure is upgraded to a business-grade fibre connection, delivering ultra-fast internet. Unlike Business NBN or Premium NBN, the service provides symmetrical upload and download speeds of up to 1000Mbps and includes business grade SLA’s. It’s an ideal choice for businesses needing fast and reliable internet and is available to more than 1.5 million businesses across Australia.
Operating through the Vocus network, Business Fibre delivers internet data through fibre optic cables. This type of broadband connection can be a great solution for businesses that use a large amount of data or require uninterrupted high-speed internet.
Being a carrier owned network, the internet connection isn’t shared, meaning it’s faster, more reliable and cheaper than Enterprise NBN. While it may not be available to everyone, a simple service qualification check will determine whether your business premises has access to this type of connection.
Fixed Wireless is a type of service that connects businesses in rural and broadband-constrained areas to high-speed internet. The internet is transmitted through radio waves to your location, via microwave towers.
Fixed Wireless offers lower latency than business fibre because the path is more direct, as it’s travelling through the air rather than through glass fibre. This broadband service is easy to install and can be up and running within a few business days.
Upgrading to a high-speed broadband service is a great investment for any business. There is a broadband service to fit businesses of any size, depending on location, budget and availability. Getting connected to faster and more reliable broadband service means that you no longer have to worry about a slow connection again.
