The Inconvenience of a Poor Internet Connection for Small Businesses

Today’s online users can travel through the Internet a rapid pace. Shifting between apps, sites and cloud-based software is as simple and fast as flipping channels on your television. This is only the case, however, until you lose your Internet connection.

This setback can abruptly halt all productivity for your company. When your Internet connection is weakened, the following vital elements of your business will be affected:

  • Phones
  • Cloud services & applications
  • Remote staff members

Do you have a T1 line? Even so, you will not be able to use the phone and run your company the conventional way. Your cloud-based software will not function and if you have staff members operating remotely, they will no longer have access to the tools they require.

It is also imperative to understand that connectivity problems can materialize in more than simply an Internet outage. Reduced speeds and irregular connections can be equally as bothersome.

How can you strengthen your Internet connectivity?

  • Inspect your router settings.
  • Inspect the router’s firmware.
  • Check with your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Check your Internet protocol settings.
