As the NBN rolls out around the country many businesses are scratching at the gate to sign up to get faster broadband for their business. There are a few problems with this though.
1. Speed isn’t everything
Not all broadband types are the same, and not all NBN broadband products are the same either.
The majority of what you hear about the NBN is relating to consumer grade broadband. The cheaper pricing you see in mass media advertising is lower speed consumer grade NBN with high contention ratios (Read more on contention ratios and how it effects your business).
With contention ratios of some providers on the NBN being as high as 400:1, do you really want to be sharing your bandwidth with the rest of the suburb? It may not be suitable for the majority of business with more than 10 staff.
For some of us the NBN has already passed our premises, for others it won’t happen for another 3 years. What do you do in the meantime? Get in Touch with us if you want to know how long before it comes by your business and what other options you may have
3. Multi Technology Mix
Not all NBN is the same, with a roll out of multiple technologies, the connection for your business might not live up to your expectations, or worse yet, your needs as you move your systems and process to the cloud. Will you have FttP? FttB? FttN? FttDp? FttC? Fixed Wireless? Satellite? Do you even know what all those acronyms mean? Get in Touch with us if you want to more about the type of NBN for your business and what other options you may have
