Business internet

Internet speeds are typically measured in megabits per second (Mbps). It’s important to remember that you may have different bandwidth requirements depending on whether you’re a business or private residence.

Internet service providers understand how important a reliable broadband connection is for businesses. With a business account, you will often experience benefits like priority tech support, static IPs, and service guarantees.

Can residential customers get business internet? Yes! Consider business internet service with speeds like 7 Mbps if you work from home or need a dependable connection. Solopreneurs, consultants, remote workers, and more appreciate the perks of business internet. A business connection with a static IP is also useful if you host your own server.

Organizations and families that don’t need extra support or guarantees will find that residential internet fits their needs. Consumer internet service is your best bet if you spend the majority of your time streaming or answering emails.

What to Expect with a 7 Mbps Internet Connection

An internet connection with 7 Mbps speeds is fast enough for most small businesses and households. This broadband speed is perfect for light-medium streaming, email, and general internet use. Make the most of your download speed by watching your favorite movies and shows in standard definition. With 7 Mbps, it takes about fifteen minutes to download an SD movie compared to about an hour and twenty minutes for an HD movie.

It’s worth looking into 15 Mbps if you need more bandwidth, or faster internet speeds. This broadband connection gives you the faster download speed needed for large data transfers, online gaming, and streaming high-definition video. A 15 Mbps connection speed is also great for video conferencing and VoIP or Skype calls.

The first step in determining the perfect internet speed for your home or business is finding your current speed using one of the many speed tests available online.

Once you’ve completed the test, you have a couple different ways to use that information. You’ll know what speeds to look for if you’re happy with your high-speed internet connection, but need to switch internet providers when moving. On the other hand, you know what to ask for if you’re happy with your internet service provider, but need something faster than your current internet speed.

How Bundling Can Save You Time and Money

Bundles come with high-speed internet, and phone for a lower price per service than if you got each separately.

You’ll also save yourself some headspace with one customer service number, bill, service provider, and account for both your phone and your broadband internet.

If you’re a business, bundling means your employees get the bandwidth they need and you get the required services to run your business—without hurting your bottom line.

If you’re a residential customer, bundling means you can save money while having enough bandwidth for the binge-watchers, talkers, and gamers in your home.

Another perk of bundling? Customization. Depending on your needs, you can easily add on a variety of extras like a Wi-Fi connection, TV, and security options.
