For most businesses, an internet connection is an absolute must. From communicating with customers to staying in touch with colleagues or accessing files and applications in the cloud, being online is more important than ever.
But if you’re currently using an old-fashioned copper connection or fibre to the cabinet (FTTC), you might be wondering what all the fuss around full fibre is about and whether you need to bother upgrading.
Here are four good reasons why your business might need full fibre.
Full fibre connections are generally much more reliable than those that depend on the old copper telephone network. With fibre optic cable running all the way from the exchange to your home or office, you won’t suffer from the same signal loss that blights copper and you should expect your service to work flawlessly for the vast majority of the time.
When being connected is vital – and it usually is – you need a connection you can rely on.
2. Better bandwidth
The world has moved on. That connection that gave your business everything it needed ten years ago is probably no longer up to the task.
As businesses, we’re uploading and downloading more data than ever, our people need a fast, reliable connection, we’re video calling throughout the working day and we need access to our cloud-based office applications.
For a single user, an FTTC connection might suffice, but for busy or growing offices – or those that need the best speed available – full fibre presents a more compelling choice.
If you’re not sure why a full fibre connection is so important for voice communications, we’ve covered that in more detail here.
As the Great British Switch Off takes effect, businesses will need to replace traditional PSTN and ISDN connections. Thankfully, full fibre will provide better quality and a host of additional features to take business communications to another level.
4. Future proof
As the UK relentlessly marches toward full fibre connectivity, simultaneously switching off copper connections, a full fibre connection is a great investment for the future.
It’s coming to us all at some point but getting on board now can make the transition over the next couple of years (as traditional connections are withdrawn) much easier.
