If you are like us, you’re always looking for ways to improve your business efficiency. We do it in three ways. First, by delegating a task to an employee so we don’t have to do everything. Second, automate a task which is tedious and repetitive. And, third, improving a service or process to complete tasks faster. With something like fiber optic internet, we reach our goals way faster than our competition.
While sometimes we can’t afford to hire a new employee, we can still use additional software or service to make our work a lot easier. When we started our business, we were working a lot harder than we should have. We would spend unnecessary hours getting things done that would only take one hour to do.
The main cause was using the wrong process. It conditioned our brains in thinking using the wrong systems was the right thing to do. This is the main reason we take more time to plan things out. As a result, now with the right system in place with our fiber optic internet, we’re working faster than ever.
What speed does your business work in?
A lot of business owners and entrepreneurs have no clue how long most of their tasks take to complete. It’s understandable since business owners have a lot on their plate, but eventually, it’s much more profitable to know the duration of a task.
Let’s say an employee of yours is using an antiquated software that is slowing down their work. In addition, your internet service provider is supplying you with slow upload and download speeds. This is a perfect example of how your business is losing resources and could profit by fixing these bottlenecks.
You can work at the speed of light with fiber optic internet
Your business cannot afford to lose any missed opportunities due to slow Internet problems. Think about how much more things you can get done by your employees with all the time they can save not waiting for something to finish uploading or downloading. With fiber, you can increase the productivity of your business by going to speeds of 1Gpbs. That’s 100x faster than Cable or DSL.
You can completely forget about buffering or any latency issue if you are using fiber internet. The number of devices connected to your network will never slow your internet down. Typically in business, on average, we use simultaneously ten devices on the network. As your business scales, the network won’t keep up and you’ll eventually experience bandwidth issues.
Less downtime, and more reliability
We know the frustration you experience when your network or internet goes down. This is the primary reason we offered our own internet service to Miami. We wanted to give the community a reliable service that has over 90% uptime through fiber optic internet. We knew there were other people like us that didn’t like Comcast and cable internet as much as we did.
Imagine working in an area or in your business where you experience frequent outages. You’ll have so many interruptions where you can’t get any work done. Luckily, with fiber optic internet you are less likely to go down if any slight power issue happens in your neighborhood. This connection has cables that have strains of glass and does not generate electricity.
Fiber Optic Internet is being more available in commercial areas
When fiber was first introduced, only a select few people were lucky enough to try this new technology. Back in 2012, only 10% of the nation was getting this special connection despite the introduction. That is no longer the case since things have expanded across the nation. Look at Google Fiber when they first rolled out their fiber technology, it was only available in California. Now fiber optic internet is propagating slowly to different states and eventually will be available for everyone.
We were the first ones on board when this technology was under development so we learned more about it and developed our own fiber optic internet service. Hence, this is a reason fiber is available in Miami-Dade, Broward County, and Palm Beach County since 2012. A lot has changed since then and so has the process we deploy fiber optic internet to any small business in Miami.
A whole ton of bandwidth for your business
Don’t let these other internet service providers fool you when they say they have the highest bandwidth available on the market. They’ll sell you this technology desire and then cap you when you least expect it. These are some tactics we despise about ISPs like Comcast. They try to creep in nefarious ways to get your money. They like to sell you at a low price for low bandwidth, THEN upsell you more bandwidth when your data
Your download speed is
the same as your upload speed
Have you ever gotten fast upload speed? We sure haven’t when we had cable internet. It’s ridiculous as you would think the amount of money you are paying, you’ll get a decent amount of upload speed for Cable or DSL. Take a look at the image below.
This is an example of a customer using Comcast as their internet service provider who thinks they are getting “high quality.” It’s outrageous and utter nonsense. See with fiber optic internet, you won’t have a huge difference in upload and download speed. This is what I mean.
I did this speed test outside of our office on my Samsung Galaxy S10. This is showing you a prime example of how we practice what we preach for our internet service. The upload speed you get with fiber will always be “symmetrical” with your download speed. And that’s 1 freaking Gig. (1Gpbs). We don’t believe in limitations for bandwidth and we refuse to bottleneck our customers. Every business and individual deserves the fastest internet service.
Faster access to cloud applications
Unless you’re still living in the past and using old technology, most software applications are accessed via a web application. So long are the days when we used to buy a perpetual license and didn’t have to worry about a monthly cost. With the advent of SaaS (Software as a Service), your business can’t function without an internet connection, period.
Think about all the software applications or web apps you use in your daily life. They all require an internet connection and without one, you wouldn’t be able to get any work done at all. You can see it in modern society, remote workers who program from home or even a blog writer who writes at an internet cafe. This is why it’s more important than ever to not have any issues with a slow connection. Your work depends on a high-performance internet.
How many times have you had buffering interruptions when you were streaming a video? Too many for us to count. The thing with other types of internet connections, they’ll eventually experience high latency due to many variables. Your employee can be streaming a training video, someone can be video conferencing, or you’re on a Skype call with a client. No matter what the scenario is, you can’t afford to have high latency for your business.
What are some examples when latency starts becoming a problem?
- Videoconferencing with your team and there are significant delays when someone speaks.
- Your downloads take more than thirty minutes to complete when it should take minutes.
- E-mails sent from your business don’t instantly reach your recipient’s inbox.
- Web pages don’t load as fast as they should. (Sometimes, it’s the website itself that is the problem and not your connection.)
- Your server backups are timing out and have not completed properly due to high latency.
Less impact from weather
When I had cable internet, I remember I would always worry when there was a storm or a hurricane going on. Early signs of a storm would always worry me since I knew my Internet would always go down. Ever since I switched to fiber internet, that problem rarely, if ever, happens at all. Majority of the time it is able to withstand the harsh environmental conditions going on outside.
This means when it comes to rain or snow, fiber optic cables aren’t going to be affected by the weather. However, if a tree or automobile happens to strike where the fiber pole is, then yeah, you can expect it to go down immediately. But as I am mentioning this, it is a very rare occurrence and this is usually done by people rather than the weather. Not even an HVAC or cooling system would cause any minor impact for a fiber optic cable.
Also, it is resistant to radio waves and any radiation from electromagnetic frequencies. This is why it is frequently used in industrial applications since it can be laid out nearby any industrial equipment without problems. If you haven’t figured it out by now, these type of cables isn’t affected by temperature, unlike copper cables. And, did you know, you can submerge fiber optic cables? Pretty cool if you ask me.
Enhances business capabilities
What’s a better way to please your customers? Serve them faster, of course. With fiber optic internet, you can enhance your customer user experience and employee experience. It’s a win-win for your business and your customers. You’ll be able to complete transactions for your customers at the speed of light while completing your work at fasters speeds than your competitors. And, I think we can all agree, we’re always trying to one-up our competitors somehow. This is definitely an option and a way of doing just that.
Does your business have VoIP? If you don’t by now, it’s time to get with the program. Communication is vital to a business and having the right tools to relay a message to a customer or an employee is more important than ever. Fiber connections have proven to supply a clear signal consistently for VoIP. Whether you use free software to speak with your remote workers or even PoE (Power over Ethernet) phones, you’ll need to have a high-quality connection to avoid missing any important detail from someone.
Less maintenance needed
What if you didn’t need constant maintenance for your internet service? I used to despise the times I needed to call a “technician” from Comcast to fix my Internet connection. This was on a bi-weekly basis too, it was more than frustrating, it was disappointing. Luckily with fiber internet, you’ll rarely need to contact customer support or call a technician to fix your service. There are rarely any problems once the fiber connection is installed, given that it was installed correctly and in a secure manner. It saves you a lot of time and worries and it gives you more time to focus on growing your business.
A wise investment for your infrastructure
As a business, we know how important it is to make the right investments. We don’t like making the wrong ones and then start feeling buyer’s remorse. It’s the worst feeling for a business owner. When it comes to internet service, it’s no exception. You’re making a long-term investment that you’ll be using for years to come. The sales that you get to close quicker will be the result of the fast speeds you get from an internet connection like fiber.
One thing we want to point out when it comes to fiber internet that you should know early on is that it’s not the cheapest option compared to cable internet and DSL. You should never associate a cheaper price to high-quality internet service. If that was the case, the whole world would be using Comcast Internet and not the other options that are out there. When it comes to fiber optic internet, you’re getting what you pay for. You’ll receive nothing less than the best speeds and service because that’s how it should be.
Easy to install
Compared to copper cables, which are used for cable internet, fiber optic cables are WAY easier to install. They weigh a lot less, so they are easy to do long cable runs. It is not a pain to maintain since they are so lightweight, and even if you had a ton of fiber optic cables in your server room, they are really easy to organize. Your IT employee would have no issue since it wouldn’t be a mess of cables. Having the right technician to install your fiber optic internet is key from cable overload. We dislike a cable mess as much as you do. You can save a ton of space just by getting rid of those heavy copper cables.
Every industry can benefit from fiber optic internet
This type of connection is not industry specific and can be used for all types of different businesses out there. You would think since it’s so new and cutting-edge that technology industries can only use this. Actually, that’s not the case. From government facilities, universities, and local small businesses, each has its own use case to benefit from this high-speed connection. As you can imagine in these types of environments, many users are using the internet connection and they can’t afford to have any bandwidth issues.
For example, in a hypothetical scenario, a higher education institution needs to increase its network throughput, but they can’t since their internet is limited. Fiber internet has the potential to do this and can solve their network problem. Despite how large the campus may be, this type of installation wouldn’t that be much of an issue because fiber can be routed in an efficient manner. The size of the environment where the business is does not impact the speed or reliability of any fiber connection.
Whatever your business might be in, you should never have to suffer from slow internet. Everyone deserves consistent, reliable, and affordable internet service that scales with their business growth. As your business operations increase, let’s say, you are adding additional offices, fiber optic internet can easily grow with you.
