Internet & Communications
Internet connectivity is vital to today's digital workplace but not all connections deliver the same results in terms of high speed and availability. When our team are asked about migrating to the cloud or moving business applications off-premise for example, some of our initial questions are, what type of internet connection do you have? How fast is it? A fast and secure connection is a necessity in today's digital age where employees require mobility and access to business applications from any device, anytime. Work has often become something we do, rather than somewhere we go. Without a quality connection staff would not be able to perform at their peak efficiency or productivity.
To test your current internet speed you can take this internet speed test. Internet connection options, and therefore internet speed is determined by what access you have. You can check if your premises qualifies for Fibre400 here or the NBN here, or see the below list of internet connections available and contact us to discuss your internet requirements. You can read more about internet speed availability and what internet speed is required for your projected usage in our latest blog; Is your internet up to speed?
There are different internet connections available to business; ADSL, Ethernet, Fibre Optic Ethernet or the NBN and your business size, workload and access demands should all weigh in to the decision. Whatever your business requirements, demand or budget we can tailor-make the best internet solution for you.
