How to evaluate business internet plans

With all the different types of internet connections offered by different internet providers, businesses often struggle to choose the best option. Cost, speed, reliability, and other factors should weigh in on your decision. Read on for more of the key features to look for when choosing both a business internet service and business internet provider.

Choose Cost-Effective Business Class Internet

Cable and fiber-optic internet services generally offer more value than satellite or DSL internet. Most internet providers offer several different internet options including business high speed internet and phone bundles. Bundling saves money, lets you customize your internet needs, simplifies billing, and streamlines all of your business communication needs. A reliable business internet provider may offer 24/7 support and additional savings for long-term agreements.

Customize Your Business Internet Service

Does your business need only basic email and web browsing? Or does it require more data-intensive tasks like video streaming? Not all business high speed internet packages are created equal, and you should choose one you can trust. Cable ONE Business packages offer flexible and customizable plans with download speeds of up to 500 Mbps and 50 Mbps upload speeds, providing more than enough to support video conferencing, large file uploads, and cloud sharing.

Get the Business Internet Speed You Need

Business internet speeds vary depending on the type of internet and the terms of your chosen service. A popular choice among businesses, cable internet offers speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 1 Gbps. These speeds are enough for most file sharing, web browsing, and video streaming needs. A step up from cable, fiber internet offers the fastest speeds and ample bandwidth to support all your business communications needs. Cable ONE Business offers customizable Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) fiber internet plans backed by 24/7 support and flexible options, should your needs change.

Compare All of Your Internet Options

Internet for business comes in many forms, from satellite and DSL internet to cable and fiber-optic broadband internet. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, and some businesses may prefer one over another.

  • Satellite internet is available almost everywhere, making it a good choice for rural offices. However, its relatively high cost and downtime during inclement weather may cause issues.
  • DSL internet is delivered through a telephone line and is generally slower than other internet options, but can be quite cost-effective for businesses with basic internet needs.
  • Cable internet offers ample speed and reliability and can be bundled with phone and TV services. It is one of the most popular internet choices and can be customized to fit your business needs.
  • Fiber internet offers the fastest speeds but may not be available in certain markets. Fiber internet with high bandwidth allowance can be expensive but provides businesses with lightning-fast download and upload speeds sufficient for virtually any task.

No matter which type of internet you choose, you should choose an experienced provider who can assist you 24/7.
