Choosing business or home broadband

If you are expanding a business which you’ve run from home to date, the difference between business and home broadband may not be immediately obvious and you may wonder if you should pay more to have business broadband or a leased line.

So just what is the difference between regular home broadband and business broadband and what exactly are the benefits for your business?

The difference between business and home broadband

Home broadband is typically cheaper than business broadband for several reasons. Home broadband provides a dynamic IP address which changes everytime you login. This means that there may be some lag in connection and intermittent downtime with your service. However, with business broadband you are provided with a static IP address which never changes.

High Speed Leased Business Line

FTTC or Fibre To The Cabinet guarantees superfast speeds of up to 80MB/s moreover, providers of business broadband prioritise business clients above domestic users. If you want an even better service, you can opt for a internet leased line. This will ensure a high-quality uninterrupted connection with no lag time. If you use VOIP services like Skype and WhatsApp to enhance your business communications, you’ll notice greatly improved speeds and quality especially for video conferences. It will also mean that upload and download speeds will be dramatically faster enabling lag time to be reduced to the point where you have a seamless connection. Moreover, your connection is uncontended which means that you will be the sole user of that line. You will also have access to multi-site connectivity across a wide area network whether nationally or globally.
