Each business’s broadband needs are different. Our team can help you determine which type of broadband connection is most suitable for your usage pattern. Smaller businesses will probably be best served by a Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) or Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) connection. However, if your internet connection is vital to your business, and you have the budget on hand, a leased line connection is a great choice.

What is the best business broadband?
This will depend on how your business uses broadband. Businesses which use a lot of online services, such as continuous cloud backups, VoIP, or video calls, should try to get the most bandwidth possible. If they can afford it, businesses like this should get a leased line. However, when it comes to small business broadband, those organisations which are less reliant on online services, would do fine with an FTTP or FTTC connection.
Why is business broadband more expensive?
Business broadband customers receive a higher level of customer service from their internet service provider. The service level agreement will normally include a guaranteed minimum speed, which is a more reliable figure than the “best effort” speed advertised by home broadband providers.
Is business internet faster than residential?
In theory, home broadband and business broadband can achieve the same speeds. However, home broadband is normally shared by more than one user and so the connection is “contested”. Because of this, home users rarely get the speed advertised by their service provider.
What's the difference between internet and broadband?
The word internet refers to the network of connected computers and servers. Networking protocols govern how information can move across the internet. Other online services, like websites, are built on top of the internet.
The word broadband refers to a technology that is used to access the internet. Broadband allows for multiple “packets” of data to be sent and received over the connection. It is called broadband because it uses a broader “band” of frequencies compared to older, slower methods of connecting to the internet.
How good is mobile broadband?
Mobile broadband refers to using a device to rebroadcast a 4G or 5G signal. The speed and reliability of mobile internet has steadily increased over years but is still generally slower than fixed line broadband. It is not advisable to try and run your entire business via mobile broadband, but it can be helpful to use on the go.
