No broadband connection is immune from downtime, and nothing with electrical components ever will be. There is a large degree of variance, based on the characteristics of your business and environment (i.e., your vertical, risk tolerance etc), in terms of financial loss should your connection fail. The average business suffers from about 14 hours of internet downtime per year. Regardless of the specific number of hours offline, there is always a heavy cost for businesses; late delivery of goods or services, a loss of customer goodwill, as well as inevitable loss of revenue that would have been generated with a reliable connection.
The increasing demand for faster Internet connectivity means that the need for ‘dedicated bandwidth’ is higher than ever in 2016. Traditional broadband simply cannot satisfy this growing demand. The adaptation to higher frequency technologies is now an essential for any cutting-edge business. Super-fast access to data and cloud based services is not simply a bonus extra, but is now essential for any enterprise looking to compete globally.
