Just how good is your broadband speed?
Currently, internet connectivity is as important to our livelihoods as flowing water. Despite being in the country’s capital, you might still be suffering from a lack of full-fibre broadband, which is holding back the efficiency of your business and is ultimately costing you time & money.
But there are options available – just because the great big network operators aren’t connecting your building to superfast services, doesn’t mean that you can’t get admission to faster services via different means.
Yes, as you would expect, connecting a dedicated fibre line (a Fibre Leased Line) into your business is pricier when compared to out-of-date broadband services. But! With most businesses, this doesn’t mean you have to surge your comms budget. If you are still using ISDN lines for your telephony, then you have some varieties.
ISDN, still the staple of voice infrastructures for most businesses, has its end-of-life already in the distance following well above 30 years of use. BT have announced their intentions to ‘switch off’ all these services by 2025, and therefore drive forward the implementation of VoIP (Voice-over-IP) telephony by businesses in the country.
By choosing to bin your use of ISDN whenever your contract ends, you can benefit from the immediate cost savings, which in turn can fuel the budget for the Fibre Leased Line.
WHAT DO I DO ABOUT TELEPHONE CALLS?
By revamping to full-fibre, you will have the internet speed & line consistency to make VoIP a prospect. VoIP instead carries your voice calls over your broadband connection, and no longer over the copper ISDN cables.
Employing VoIP doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable & pricey experience – there are so many exclusive services and choices available these days, with such a competitive marketplace ensuring costs are kept to a minimum. Switching from older forms of telephony doesn’t mean you have to leave your partners behind; you can swiftly & easily port these across onto VoIP, enabling you to carry on making & receiving calls as you always have.
