Full disclosure: yes, we sell fiber service. Yes, we still get asked why it costs more than other business internet connections, so we have tried to explain that further as well. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. It depends on what your business requirements are.

Do you need fiber internet service?

Quite simply, if you have 10 or more employees who need to access cloud based services such as SugarCRM, dropbox, Google Drive, or a cloud based PBX service (to name just a few), DSL or a T1 line will likely not meet your business needs.

The emergence of cloud computing services and technologies such as SaaS, Paas and IaaS have changed how companies and enterprises do business. The need for instant data / information, along with heightened bandwidth, also highlights some disadvantages of cloud computing.

Slow internet speeds, high latency and ‘maxed out’ connections, can be the cause of losses in business productivity and efficiency. Fiber internet service aims to ensure higher connection speeds for multiple users, (generally more than 10).

To meet higher demands and more bandwidth across the board, Internet Service Providers are aggressively upgrading infrastructure. To compete in the fiber market, (especially now that Google Fiber has rolled out to more residential locations), the good news is that fiber service pricing is now more accessible for residents and businesses alike.
