Keep carm and carry on with business
Access to the Internet is a mandatory requirement for any modern company and any outages can be hugely damaging.
A percentage of businesses will lose money as soon as their Internet connection drops and this number significantly increases to within after a couple of hours. If there is a lengthy delay of services within the 24 hr period almost all business will feel the financial impact. Internet giants, of course, give themselves some small print ‘wiggle-room’ for these unforeseen circumstances, and that’s fair enough as no one can predict the future.
Most internet providers cannot control external factors that may interrupt fibre connection, whether is has been dug up from a road nearby or perhaps the weather has effected some equipment – whatever the reason, are you and your company protected? Can you afford not to be?
For this reason, more and more companies choose to install a back-up internet connection that does not rely on the same cables as their primary internet source. The technology of choice for a reliable secondary source is usually a microwave connection.
