Or why a cat video going viral in the office next door needn’t reduce your company’s productivity.Posted on 30 July 2015 - Connectivity
When you sign-up for your business broadband, you will probably have been told some impressive download speeds that your connection can achieve. Unfortunately, ‘can’ is the key word. Whether you actually achieve these speeds is a different matter - and it might not even be your use that’s dragging the speed down.
With a regular internet connection, if you’re sharing the line with other people in your building, street or even neighbourhood, the connection speed will slow down during peak times.
So, as we mentioned above, if all the staff in the office next door are watching a cat video, your internet speed will suffer as a result. A dedicated internet line is the ideal way to avoid that.
A dedicated internet line is uncontended. That means you’re not competing with anybody else for the resources available; it’s all for your business. As a result, your internet speeds are reliable, consistent and very, very fast.
How fast do you need? At Tibus, we offer a range of access speeds from 2Mbp/s up to 1Gbp/s anywhere in Northern Ireland.
The beauty of having your very own dedicated internet line is that you can have the service tailored to your exact requirements (or what you think your requirements might be in the near future). For instance, Belfast children’s television creators Sixteen South have a dedicated internet line with a synchronous (the same speed for downloads and uploads) 1Gbp/s connection to allow them to send full episodes to the USA easily and quickly.
In short, a dedicated internet connection gives you a bit more control. That's the control to ensure the productivity of your staff remains unaffected by sluggish connections during peak times and control over the technical capabilities of your organisation.
