What are the potential effects of Broadband Downtime on your Business?
The more time your business goes without an internet connection, the more work doesn’t get done. This means that you will be at a loss for productivity because of a simple fix, if you had One2Calls fully managed services we would be able to monitor and, where possible, prevent your connections from going offline before you started to experience any issues.
Without an internet connection, most modern businesses would struggle to operate properly, losing out or being restricted on the types of business they can do. Therefore, a poor connection or no connectivity can result in a loss or reduction in revenue. A continued loss of connectivity will continue to have a negative impact on revenue, and if you do not have agreed SLA fix times you could be experiencing downtime of days.

Continuous Communication is key for all businesses, but in order to have effective communication your business must have a strong, reliable connection. This can be achieved by using One2Call’s bespoke connectivity packages which offer backup and/or emergency connectivity solutions to reduce the chance of your business’ communications channels failing.
Businesses that rely on their business broadband internet connectivity for data backup solutions can be left exposed to lost data whilst ever they are without an internet connection. Files could be corrupted or deleted without the ability to recover them, or once they are recovered the business could have lost hours or days worth of work. Businesses who use cloud based databases for production, finance and more could lose data they are working on and more.
Whilst many businesses do not think of this, a loss of internet connectivity can also result in a loss of business reputation. If the business is unable to keep in contact with customers or clients, lose phone line connectivity, email connectivity and more, they may lose out on business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I get WiFi Included?
WiFi and Broadband are two separate things. Broadband is your connection delivered via fibre or copper cables to your business. Whereas Wi-Fi is technology that allows you to connect your wireless devices to the internet.
When your broadband is connected to your property a Router will allow the data to be used to connect devices to the internet. Some Routers (especially consumer Routers) will allow you to connect to the internet over Wi-Fi built in to the routers. However, in many cases, this built in WiFi may not be have a suitable range, capacity or speed to be suitable to most businesses. In this case most businesses will have separate wireless infrastructure to allow for a wide range of devices to connect to the internet over a large business footprint.
At One2Call we can also work with your business to asses your Wireless/Networking requirements, and we can recommend (and even install, manage and maintain) a solution to suit your business needs.
Is Security included with my Business Broadband?
When it comes to your cyber security, One2Call offer a range of services to keep you covered from all angles. These can all be added onto your plan as extras when we build your tailor-made service.
How reliable is my Business Broadband?
The reliability of your Business Broadband is dependent on a magnitude of factors. However, building an ultrareliable, ultrafast Business Broadband is most achievable with Full Fibre Broadband (FTTP) and Leased Lines, as its transmitting technologies allow signal to be passed directly to your business.
