Businesses are benefiting from faster, more reliable internet connections thanks to dedicated leased lines.
Data demands are growing rapidly and businesses are finding they require a faster, more secure connection to keep up with the competition and to provide the service their customers expect.
A dedicated leased line is a fibre optic cable that runs from your business directly to the exchange. The cable can deliver ultra-fast speeds that no other service can beat.
A third of manufacturers have invested in a dedicated leased line connection and other companies are following suit. ( According to EEF, May 2016 )
The benefits of switching to a leased line
Businesses can benefit from switching from broadband to a dedicated leased line in many ways:
Consistency and scalability
With the rise of technology, businesses now rely on a consistent and high-speed internet connection. SME’s are expected to respond to customers in an instant, to store and transfer large amounts of data daily and to work without disruption.
A dedicated leased line ensures companies no longer have to share their connectivity with others which can often slow the connection down, especially at busy times. Instead, you’ll receive a consistent, committed bandwidth at all times meaning you can always provide and achieve what you promise to your customers.
The use of a leased line also means you can quickly and easily scale your connectivity up or down, so you always pay for the connectivity that matches the exact demands of your business.
With scalability, also comes cost-saving. The benefit of being able to scale your connectivity to adapt to your changing requirements means you can achieve the most cost-effective connectivity for your business, at all times.
The cost of leased lines has dropped and they are becoming a much more cost-effective option for many businesses.
We all know that customers come first, which is why you should consider customer satisfaction when making business decisions. An excellent internet connection ensures you can deliver promises to customers without the risk of delays and downtime and also allows you to upload and download large data files in a flash.
Leased lines support VPN and remote access so your customer data can be kept safe and secure and your staff can access it from anywhere. Allowing staff to work from anywhere can also result in attracting the best talent which in turn results in a great service and happy customers.
62% of firms are planning to invest more in internet connected capital equipment in the next five years ( According to EEF, May 2016 ) so it’s imperative businesses keep up with the curve.
