Internet Connectivity is key to every business
Connectivity or Internet access is the ability of Individuals or organisations to connect to the World Wide Web (WWW). In itself it doesn’t sound spectacular, but without it, nearly every walk of life would be effected and all businesses now depend on it
Whatever it takes
Without connectivity and Internet access, we would have no websites, no email and a plethora of services would collapse and the business world would quickly come to a virtual standstill. Depending upon your Internet Connectivity requirements, customers normally opt for the best and fastest Internet connection speeds that are available in your location, whether Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) or Dedicated Internet Access (Lease Lines)
Your location and proximity to the local cabinet will have a massive impact on Connectivity or the ‘Bandwidth’ available to you. ‘Bandwidth’ is the term used to identify the capacity of a wired or wireless network communications link to transmit the maximum amount of data from one point to another over a computer network or an internet connection in a given amount of time and is usually quoted in terms of 80/20 Mega bits per second or variations of this. Unless a synchronous connection is supplied, the speed quoted first (Download) will always be greater than the second speed (upload). Because data travels up & down, the download speed should always be taken into consideration when deploying any network services whether voice or data and our experts will be able to advise what is available and where.

Voice over Internet Protocol - VoIP
As more and more companies take the step to move the voice communications into the “Cloud”, the major single factor involved is the Internet Connectivity and bandwidth achievable. Poor speeds or low bandwidth delivers a poor voice quality which is normally associated with early ADSL connections. Now that Fibre is available in various formats – FTTC – FTTP – DIA, the bandwidths and stability of the circuits are such that downtime is measured in years instead of how many time the circuit would fail in a day or week.
Check your own speed / Bandwidth
There are many “Checkers” on the internet to demonstrate your currents speeds – We have now included a check button for ease to see your current Internet Connectivity speeds. Simply – Click on the “Run Speed Test” button. We also use and external checker which is open source.
The Speed checker will calculate your Download Speed first of all and then your Upload speed. Both figures are important and deliver a comprehensive overview of the Bandwidth available.
