How Faster Internet Speeds Will Help Your Business

how_faster_internet_speed_117242_216392-150x150A few cities across America are currently offering ultra-high-speed broadband connectivity. Many more cities have plans to do so in the near future. Here, we’re talking about speeds of up to 10-gigabits, which is nearly a thousand times faster than the speeds offered by the broadband connections in most homes across the nation.

In business in this day and age, speed is everything. Speed is life. A faster connection improves virtually every aspect of your operation, from better, clearer, lower latency VOIP and virtual meeting connections, to large file transfers, to faster cloud-based computing, and pretty much everything in between.

The ability to transfer increasingly larger files at a rapid pace is critical for prototyping and product development, while the faster speeds enable businesses to do more with cloud computing, including the manipulation and extraction of meaningful business intelligence from Very Large Data Sets, more quickly than ever before. These are specific ways that faster connectivity speeds can improve your business.

The reality is that from a process standpoint, there just aren’t that many more gains to be found. Our processes are, at least for the most part, as tight and as efficient as we can make them, so to take prototyping as an example then, about the only way to further shrink the development cycle is to find new ways to increase speed. Current bandwidth speeds then, become the bottleneck, and the crucial challenge that must be overcome if you want to speed your processes further.

Cities that become early adopters of the Ultra-High-Speed connections will create a powerful strategic advantage for themselves, by being able to offer businesses a service that relatively few other places have. If your city does not currently offer 10-gigabit speeds (or higher), begin asking your local city officials why not, and also begin casting about for locations that do. Otherwise, you risk the very real possibility of being left in the dust by faster, more digitally capable competitors.

Tech net is our hero I We were hacked and it was a devastating and scarey feeling. We were lucky enough to be recommended to TechNet as our current IT people had not made our system secure enough and were unable to help us properly. Rob Lloyd came in with his superman cape and got us back on track. He helped us through the crisis and worked tirelessly on our behalf. He helped us survive and rebound after the hack. We feel more secure now with the safeguards Rob installed. Without Tech net, we would not be where we are today.

He has been with us since that time. He is fantastic! He is always pleasant, responsive and smart. He gets us through the day to day issues which may arise. We could not be happier with Rob’s service and feel lucky to have him on board. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking for great, reliable IT service.

Dedicated to his client and is a very personable person. I would like to endorse Rob Lloyds work as IT support and administrator for one of our acquisition firms in East Hartford. Rob was instrumental in getting our ERP system running and resolved maintenance issues immediately and professionally. I worked with Rob for over a year and he has gone above and beyond just as an IT resource. Rob helped me with my Lean Six Sigma cost reduction projects that were well received by upper management and more importantly our customers. He was also instrumental in helping me get our company re certified as ISO 9001 Rev C by creating a customer database that was required by the ISO requirements. I would highly recommend Rob’s work experience and knowledge in the future if results are driving your company. It has been a pleasure working with Rob which was easy and has become a friend. I am currently working at another one of our acquisitions and ran across a problem and he made himself available to help me with my computer issue so I was not down long. He is dedicated to his client and is a very personable person

Rob has provided technology support to my law practice for over seven years.  He is knowledgeable, personable and incredibly responsive. When I need his help in a hurry, he responds quickly and always fixes the issues. I am not particularly adept when it comes to office technology, so I rely on Rob for his explanations and suggestions.  He is proactive in his approach, and his solutions have been economical and extremely helpful in making my office run smoothly. I highly recommend TechNet Computing for tech support.
