No matter what type of business you are in, the right internet connection is one of the most important decisions you will make. With the rollout of the NBN due for completion by 2020, businesses will soon need to decide whether they will make the switch or consider other alternatives.
What do I need to know about business NBN?
The aim of the NBN is to introduce faster internet to homes and businesses across Australia, but organisations with greater requirements may find the speed and reliability inadequate for their needs.
Before signing up for a NBN plan, you should consider:
- What service is best for my business location/s?
- How much will the plan cost?
- Is there flexibility later if my business needs change?
- Will the speed be enough to run my current and future business applications?
- Is 24/7 support available, and is it local or based overseas?
Is Fibre or Ethernet a better choice for my business?
Newer technologies such as cloud-based applications and VoIP require much greater internet capacity, and depending on your location, there may be other higher-speed alternatives available. If you need failover for guaranteed speeds and uptime, to connect various locations, or the flexibility to make changes down the track, it is best to get advice from an IT provider before making any decisions.
