What’s the difference between business and home broadband?
Business broadband services offer unrivalled speed and reliability, coupled with our exemplary customer service your business gets the support and capability it demands.
A quick and reliable broadband connection is essential for any business. At MCL Telecom we recognise that, which is why we offer a range of solutions that can help no matter what your needs are.
We have solutions to fit every budget and services available for even the most challenging connectivity situations.
With MCL Telecom business broadband you’ll get the support your business needs, when it needs it. Business customers receive priority engineer support from OpenReach.
You’ll get a static IP address as standard with business broadband, which means you can run your own web servers, email in-house and VoIP phone system.
Increased data allowances with business broadband. With home broadband you are normally restricted to how much you can download each month (some as little as 1GB), business broadband is far more generous, and sometimes unlimited.
Speed, business broadband is faster through lower connection ratios. If you have multiple connections going through your broadband, you’ll need all the capacity and speed you can get.
The connectivity landscape is fluid
New technology is coming on-stream continually, offering advances and rendering once cutting-edge solutions redundant on a daily basis. Internet access is now an essential part of the business model, broadband connectivity needs to be secure and efficient.
The cloud is quickly becoming the adopted home for businesses, to communicate over, host their data on and collaborate using. IT systems are no longer on premises as the benefits of the cloud include, but are not limited to:
- Unlimited storage options.
- Server backup; never lose precious data again with timed and diarised backups.
- Unified communication and collaboration; creating easier working environments for multi-site and homeworker focussed businesses.
- IP phone systems create flexible telephony for businesses which need adaptability across their portfolios.
