Choosing the wrong broadband service can heavily hamper a company, so the decision over which ISP to use needs be carefully contemplated, Jack Bedell-Pearce has said in an article published on Find the Edge today.
He made the comments in a post that suggests 10 questions for business leaders to ask broadband providers, in order to help them determine the best option for their organisation.
He said: "Choosing an ISP can be confusing for SMEs, so here are my top 10 questions to ask potential suppliers before making your decision."
"There are hundreds of business broadband options in the market and you often get what you pay for – so make sure that you achieve your business connectivity aims and get the best value for money."
He goes on to suggest seeking an assurance that compensation will be paid in the event of downtime, asking about technical support, and avoiding getting tied into long contracts.
Bedell-Pearce also highlights the need to choose an option with appropriate download speeds.
He said: "Fast connections are expensive; the faster it is, the more money you can expect to pay.
"What do you need the connectivity speed for? Is it running an ecommerce website, or using software applications via the cloud?
"Compare the upload and download speeds of the different packages to make sure you can meet your demands while still getting the best price."
