Businesses of all sizes experience a substantial impact on their productivity without the Internet since technology has become such an integral part of our lives. Video calling, cloud services, file sharing – our day-to-day operations- all depend on the internet. Therefore, it goes without saying that having access to a stable internet connection is more critical than ever.
Leased lines are the pinnacle of internet connectivity for businesses offering high-speed internet access, uninterrupted data streams for your business communications and bullet-proof reliability. Sometimes investing in a high-quality internet connection may be the most important thing to do for your business.
But how do you know if a leased line is right for your business? Let’s find out!
Assess your business needs
All businesses can benefit from leased lines as usage is unlimited. But every business is different and so are their needs. If still in doubt, it’s important to assess your day-to-day operations.
- Do you work with large data files?
- Does your business rely on the cloud?
- Do you have operations across more than one site?
- Are you frequently frustrated by your current internet connection?
- If you were to lose internet access for a day or just for a few hours, would your business suffer badly?
To benefit from optimal productivity, it’s also important to consider your digital components and IT infrastructure within your business operations, as well as your workforce.
- Do you have a centralised office with a large workforce?
- Does your business require regular transference of data such as offsite backups?
- Does your business use cloud telephony services such as VoIP?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then maybe it’s time you consider upgrading to a dedicated internet connection.
When does your business need a leased line?
Whether you operate a small or medium-sized business, it depends entirely on how you use the internet within your business. The more employees working at the same time whether at branch offices or at home, the more uncontended bandwidth you’ll need. Also, consider what would happen to your business if the internet went down. Are there still tasks your staff could occupy themselves with, or would they be unable to work? Would you lose customers and money?
At the same time, if your business uses high bandwidth communication services including video conferencing, cloud telephony such as VoIP or cloud services, then a leased line will be the best option as it provides equal download and upload speeds.
If your business has operations across multiple sites, you can connect these to each other using a leased line. Sharing data and collaborating between these premises will be much quicker and more efficient.
