Frontier offers high-speed internet connections for both business and residential customers. There’s more to a connection than what internet speeds are available. Your unique needs will determine which type of service is best for you.
Technical support is the area where business internet shines. That’s because internet service providers (ISPs) know an unreliable connection will derail your business success.
On the other hand, consumer internet service is perfect for families who just want to stream videos or music. This type of connection can also work for small businesses that primarily use internet for non-sales tasks.
Both options offer comparable speeds, bundling options, and enough bandwidth for important activities.
How Slow Is Too Slow?
You may find yourself confused while researching the different broadband speeds available in your area. How do you know which speeds are fast enough? What do all the different acronyms and abbreviations mean?
Internet speeds are measured in bits per second which you’ll see advertised using abbreviations like Kbps, Mbps, or Gbps. The higher the number, the more bandwidth you’ll receive.
Kilobits per second (Kbps) are most commonly used for dial-up connections. Megabits per second (Mbps) are the most popular speed measurement. Gigabits per second (Gbps) are typically found in very select fiber-optic internet areas. If you’re not sure what your current connection speed is, you can find out using one or more speed tests.
A 5 Mbps internet connection is good for small businesses or households that use their bandwidth for checking email, using social media, and streaming music. However, 5 Mbps may not be fast enough for heavy video conferencing or streaming video.
Let’s compare 5 Mbps to another internet speed, 1 Mbps. A connection with 1 Mbps provides faster speeds than dial-up internet and works best for light or infrequent internet access. Unfortunately, it’s not fast enough for fast and clear video streaming or online gaming.
Is Bundling Multiple Services Worth It?
Bundling 5 Mbps broadband internet with other services like phone and TV lets you get each service for a lower price.
That means there’s no need to go over budget giving your employees, family, or roommates the bandwidth they need to work or play hard. In fact, you might even be able to splurge on a higher internet speed with the savings.
You can also save time and bandwidth by bundling. Quickly pay your bill instead of sorting through paperwork or making individual payments.
Choosing a bundle also means one account and one tech support number. Spend less time on hold with multiple service providers and more time on what’s important.
Simply put, bundling is a smart decision if you need more than just high-speed internet service for your home or business.
