Private Fibre

Videoconferencing is not just replacing phone calls; it’s also replacing in-person meetings. Travel is expensive however a good video connection can make it feel like you’re sitting in the same room.

As your company invests more heavily in digital resources and cloud-based tools, the demand on your network increases too. If your employees can’t access important applications and files, then the result can be a massive drop in productivity.

Sharing large files requires high bandwidth, which can slow Internet speeds even further.

“Having an ultra-fast and reliable private enterprise grade ethernet service can have a hugely positive impact on productivity.”   

Expecting greater productivity and high performance from staff without investing in the right type of Internet service will only cause stress and frustration.

On the other hand, a faster connection will boost staff morale and retention.

If your business has mission critical applications that require a continuous ethernet connection then uptime is going to be very important too!

You may have heard of the term five nines or ninety-nine point nine nine nine percent uptime which equates to a total downtime of approximately five minutes per year.

Any downtime is likely to have negative financial consequences. In addition to lost productivity, a mission critical app’s failure to function may also damage the business’s reputation.

Our plans deliver the flexibility to easily scale up or down to suit the evolving needs of your business along with unlimited data and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of 99.95% uptime.

Regardless of which ISP an organisation uses, outages are however unavoidable. These could be caused by power outages, natural disasters, security breaches, building fires, equipment failure, or a long list of other reasons.

No ISP in the world can guarantee that their services will never be affected by any of these events.

SLAs do not guarantee uptime. They only stipulate reimbursement if uptime requirements are not met and usually reimburse customers for the cost of the prorated connectivity that was lost.

“This is why it is important for businesses to also develop and implement a business continuity plan.”

Your best line of defence for outages is having redundant services put in place for the critical links in the WAN. These can be of equivalent bandwidth however that would be very expensive and, in most cases, unnecessary.

Another way to set up redundancy and a much more cost-effective solution is to implement a second service that has less bandwidth available but still allows for essential services to continue.

If lower bandwidth redundant services are implemented, then they need to be referenced along with which applications are essential to keep the business running or it will come to a grinding halt!
