The amount of bandwidth a customer needs is something that we get asked about on a regular basis. There isn’t a one size fits all approach to this particular subject, as it all depends on what your business intends on using the connectivity for.
Another major consideration is how many people will be making use of the connectivity and whether time-sensitive applications like voice or video are needed?
These things aren’t really something to worry about too much as we can help you every step of the way, to make sure you select the right connection.
What Speed Do You Need?
It’s probably worth highlighting the major differences between leased line speeds and perhaps what you are used to with home services.
A leased line has a fixed guaranteed contracted speed, what this means is that the bandwidth is dedicated to you and not shared with anyone else.
Another major difference is that if your connectivity does slow down, unlike your home service, the provider of the dedicated leased line has to fix the speed problem if the connection is performing poorly. The main reason for this is you are contracted for the bandwidth.
This means no up to service or estimated speeds, your leased line bandwidth is guaranteed.
