Why you need a stable internet connection
Your business relies on connectivity and your network. If your internet connection cuts out, whether it’s due to bad WiFi signal or insufficient bandwidth, everything in your business suffers from productivity to customer service.
- Poor connections create dissatisfied customers.
If you’re hosting the services your customers rely on in-house, a disconnected premise means disconnected customers. Inability to access your website, product, or service will send your customers straight to your competitors.
- You can’t deliver if your network’s down.
Poor internet connections account for 44 minutes of lost productivity per week (or 30 minutes per day for employees who work from home). These lost minutes add up over time. Delivering the great products and services your business is known for will be severely hindered by these lost hours, which is why unreliable broadband and internet connections are estimated to cost the UK economy £11bn per year.
Everything relies on the internet.
Everything from meeting deadlines to attending meetings relies on a solid, uninterrupted internet connection. For most businesses there’s no such thing as working offline. Especially with connectivity-reliant technologies like VPN’s fast becoming the norm.
