Three Grounded Reasons to Consider Wireless Broadband for Your Business
Posted November 5, 2012
In the past, this blog has discussed network services—such as Ethernet over Copper (EoC) and T1—and how they can best serve your needs. But we are also seeing Wireless Broadband emerge as a very affordable, high-speed option. 4G is growing rapidly and we anticipate that you’ll have access to it pretty much anywhere you are by next year. And that’s going to increase demand for wireless.
With this in mind, here are three ways that Wireless Broadband can help you get business done:
- You can get it in a hurry. If you can’t afford to wait, you can have Wireless Broadband up and running in practically no time. That’s handy in case, say, you need to open three new stores or offices quickly. With a copper or fiber broadband installation, you may have to wait six weeks. This will slow down your ability to complete transactions or conduct client business. In this case, we’d strongly recommend that you get Wireless Broadband until your primary connection is ready to go.
- It’s an ideal backup. In addition to circuit diversity, Wireless Broadband establishes medium diversity. It operates as fully redundant backup for existing T1, DSL, and cable installations. Wireless offers high-speed connectivity that is resilient to natural and man-made disasters. Wireless backup is a popular backup service with MegaPath customers.
- It may be the only way to connect you. If you’re in a really remote location, there may be no way to receive terrestrial or satellite broadband. You’ll have to turn to wireless because, quite frankly, you really don’t have any other option to get broadband.
Every day, we help businesses decide which broadband connection makes sense. Our Wireless Broadband features support multiple users per site, always-on access to business applications, nationwide coverage, 24/7/365 proactive monitoring and support, and Managed Security Services for PCI compliance.
