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.

On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, I arrived at my office to begin my day.  When I sat down at my computer, my screen was BLUE and filled with old DOS prompts….I immediately inquired as to whether anyone had been using my computer and the response was no…..

As I tried to reboot, I soon realized that something was drastically wrong. We had recently hired a computer consulting company to oversee our network. I was told someone would get back to me as the head technician was in Las Vegas at a seminar. No one got back to me and I sat unable to do very much.

The next day I was told that my machine had been hacked into with an encryption virus and I had to pay a ransom to get all of my encrypted files unlocked! Our computer consulting company suggested we pay the ransom and move on!! After doing some research, I discovered that this was not the solution and I obviously needed to find a new computer consultant!

On Friday, November 14th, a friend referred me to TechNet Computing. I spoke with Rob Lloyd, who did not know anything about my firm, but he graciously said he would do his best to stop by. I really did not hold out much hope that I would ever hear from him again as he explained he was on his way to a client in Bridgeport. Much to my surprise, he contacted me in the early afternoon and was in our office at 3:30 p.m. He took my computer with him and worked on it over the weekend. Although, the news was not good, he gave us great advice. His prompt response to my calamity was in and of itself enough for me to sign on with TechNet Computing.

By mid-December, I had a new computer, Rob was able to restore my files from an old off-site backup and I was back to where I was! Rob also uncovered several problems with our network and resolved each and every one.

We now have a monthly contract with TechNet Computing. Any problems that we might have with our computers are addressed by Rob Lloyd almost immediately and always within an hour or two either in person or by remote. He is extremely easy to talk to and you can even understand the answer to any question you might have. He always makes a point to speak to you in layman’s terms and not in a computer guru’s terms! I would recommend Rob Lloyd and TechNet Computing to anyone who is in the market for an excellent reliable computer consulting company!!
