Is your broadband speed fast?
In the present age, internet connectivity is as key to our livelihoods as freshwater. Despite being in the country’s capital, you might still be suffering from a lack of full-fibre broadband, which is holding back the production of your business and is ultimately costing you time & money.
But there are opportunities available – just because the big network operators aren’t connecting your building to superfast services, doesn’t mean that you can’t get admission to faster services via separate means.
Yes, as you would expect, running a committed fibre line (a Fibre Leased Line) into your business is steeper when compared to out-of-date broadband services. However! 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 over 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 up and down the country.
By choosing to bin your use of ISDN whenever your contract permits, you can benefit from the rapid cost savings, which in turn can feed the budget for the Fibre Leased Line.
BUT, HOW DO I MAKE TELEPHONE CALLS?
By renovating to full-fibre, you will have the internet speed & line reliability to make VoIP an option. VoIP instead carries your voice calls over your broadband connection, and no longer over the copper ISDN cables.
Applying VoIP doesn’t have to be a sore & costly 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 companions behind; you can swiftly & easily port these across onto VoIP, enabling you to carry on making & collecting calls as you always have.
