Today the internet plays a fundamental part in the day to day activities of any business. Internet downtime or slow connection speeds are damaging and costly, whether this is due to the service provider, line faults or hardware failure. You may want to consider an alternative or back-up solution, if internet downtime or slow speeds are likely to cause major problems to your business.
If you are currently using high-speed internet FTTC, then an additional broadband service available in the rare event that your FTTC goes down, will keep you up and running; although at a slower speed. Using the line for back up purposes only, means you can opt for a lower monthly usage plan.
Microwave internet uses wireless technology to transmit high speed data from one location to another, without the need for a phone line. This requires a direct view of the transmitter to work. To ensure your business is always online you can have microwave wireless internet as your main internet supply and broadband as your contingency.
Satellite internet is wireless internet from a satellite in space to your location. If your work place lacks telephone lines, has poor mobile network coverage and can’t be reached by any microwave transmitter masts, this is a possible solution.
Anyone who owns a 4G phone will tell you about the impressive speeds obtainable from their device. 4G dongles are small USB sticks which contain a Sim card. These connect to the internet from a PC or laptop over a mobile network connection. Depending on the network provider and location this may be 4G or 3G. Using these on a Pay As You Go basis, means that when your primary internet goes down, you can keep your operations running over the 4G connection. Remember only 4G and 3G will work as a solution; 2G and 1G are too slow. You can check 3G/4G signal strength using a smart phone.
