Fast upload speeds are vital if your business is online, and faster speeds in general means it's easier to access work materials, upload files, sync data, hold video calls, and so on.

✓ Faster speeds

Faster broadband speeds will increase the productivity of your staff. It has been proven that slow broadband can cause employees to lose up to a week in a given year. Although waiting for that web page to load only takes 30 seconds, the time soon adds up.

✓ Customer support

When you're running a business that uses the internet or a phone line, you can't afford for anything to go wrong. Before purchasing your phone and broadband contract, it is worth going on an independent review site, such as Trustpilot or Yelp. Read for yourself how each company treats its customers. Include this factor when making the decision.

✓ Web hosting

This includes your own domain name with email addresses, or cloud storage to back up your data and files. Web hosting is fundamental to the functioning of your website. It is the platform that makes your site available to customers.

✓ Business phone lines

Besides reliability, businesses often want the opportunity to keep their current phone number, or the ability to choose a catchy and relevant phone number. Most broadband companies will offer this, and more! The rise in VoIP has seen companies switch from the traditional phone line to cloud based phone systems. VoIP offers many benefits to businesses.
