How the speed of Broadband helps a Business run online

Tuesday September 7, 2010 at 9:15am
I think we all remember the day when we switched on our computers and waited endlessly for the internet to get up and running, and the screeching that came from the Modem. Thank god now for Broadband!!
It’s safe to say that the quieter, quicker, more efficient use of Broadband has benefitted the majority of homes and certainly businesses.

What is Broadband and the difference to Dial-Up Access??

Broadband is a high data rate Internet access, typically contrasted to the typical Dial-up access using a 56k modem. Dial-up modems are limited to a bit rate of less than 56 kbits (kilobits per second) and require the dedicated use of a telephone line—whereas broadband technologies supply more than double this rate and generally without disrupting telephone use.

With Broadband being greatly faster, businesses have seen an increase in sales by customers having more efficient access to websites and a quicker means to purchasing their goods. From recent news, BT have seen their 15 millionth customer join the Broadband connection. Another way that Broadband has aided sales for businesses is by providing the company with a quicker access to their site and content management. With a faster Broadband connection, businesses can add new lines to their range, update sales, etc.

An article posted on ISP Review shows that businesses in Wales now set to benefit after ZyXEL UK, a broadband access solutions provider, and ISP Carrier Wales (CW) teamed up to help deliver fibre optic 'uncontended' connectivity with services from 10Mb to 1Gb to businesses across the country. CW also adds WiMAX wireless broadband technology on to the end of their 'hardwired network, allowing high-speed Internet that can reach out to more remote rural communities.
