Has your business got its dose of fibre?

Everywhere you look these days, a local ISP is pitching their new fibre offering, promising lightning fast internet at ever lowering prices.

According to Dial-a-Nerd, fibre optic broadband “has increased economic growth by 1.38% with every 10% increase in broadband implementation”.

So, what can fibre do for your business?

It improves efficiency

If uploading and downloading files is a huge part of how you get business done, Fibre will change a lot for your business, allowing you to download files of hundreds of megabytes within seconds, and access things such as OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive more effectively.

Less time uploading and downloading the necessary files, means more time working on them!

It improves productivity, collaboration and innovation

Fibre enables better-quality video conference calls – meaning people can cut down travel time to and from meetings with clients.

It also enables face-to-face conversations with other branches across the globe, with less buffering, better audio and clearer images.

This is all conducive to a better culture of collaboration and innovation.

Fibre works for all sorts of businesses

The main perception going around is that fibre is only suitable for large corporates – which is simply not true. Whether you’re a smaller creative agency with large files needing to be uploaded, or a large company with employees needing access to the internet, fibre could be a solution for you.
