The internet is an incredible tool for businesses – in particular small enterprises.
With a broadband connection, small companies can take on big personas, and compete effectively with much bigger businesses.
Consumers are looking for attractive prices and good quality service when buying online – if a firm can deliver this, it doesn’t matter whether it has one employee or a thousand.
But when getting started with ecommerce and the internet in general, small firms need to take care and ensure they’re on the right tariff.
In all likelihood, start-up companies will use a simple residential broadband connection at first, in order to keep costs loss and avoid the hassle of switching over.
But in order to grow in the future, they will need to move over to a business internet package, giving them a wider range of options.
This ensures they have the multiple IP connections they need to deal with high numbers of emails and transactions.
Business broadband packages also offer higher levels of reliability and better customer service than basic home broadband.
This means that – in the event of an outage – services should resume in a very short timeframe, meaning data and transactions are not affected.
Sticking with home broadband may save a few pounds at first, but for any growing businesses this represents a real false economy in the long run.
