The size of your business is a huge factor of the type of connection you’re likely to opt for, but we recommend that all businesses which use the internet invest in a superfast connection, that is, anything over 25 Mbps.
For small businesses, this will be perfect for communicating through email, using social media, and using online tools and making transactions online.
E-mails are the universal tool of businesses. The ability to send messages, data, graphics, and other large files makes email an essential communication tool. A good rule of thumb when deciding on a broadband connection for your business would be to (for emails alone) have 1-2MB reserved per user.
Medium sized businesses will likely need a higher bandwidth connection which will allow all of their employees to work effectively online, without slowing anyone down. Depending on the industry, and the importance the internet has for that particular business.
As employee numbers increase, traditional phone systems might not be practical. Voice-over-IP, or ‘VoIP’, is a phone service that uses the internet to transfer voice data. Using a VoIP connection can work out much cheaper than using regular phone connections, and can scale much easier.
