Gigabit broadband speeds – Five improvements for your business

Ultrafast, reliable and efficient gigabit speed broadband is revolutionising the way we do business. Set to make Reading one of an elite group of the most digitally advanced cities in the world, like Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, CityFibre’s pure-fibre network can help to transform your business.

So, what are the benefits that you could hope to see in your business?

  • No bottlenecking, no matter how many people are using the network

Gigabit speed is, on average, 100x faster than current broadband. Whether your staff are office based, working in the field, or operating remotely, the pure-fibre infrastructure allows them to access the network simultaneously, with no bottleneck in speeds.

This means that it’s possible for multiple, high capacity tasks to be completed at the same time, with no waiting for pages to load and no downtime while HD streams buffer.

  • Ultrafast data transfers for all files

With download and upload speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second, a business using ultra fast internet has the capacity to send and receive thousands of megabits of data in seconds – everything from downloading music or video files, to sending high resolution design work can now be done in an instant.

  • Safely send and store large files online

The unparalleled speed of gigabit connectivity makes it possible to fully realise the potential of remote data storage. Huge files can be saved online using cloud based services, such as Dropbox. This avoids data and access limitations associated with storing large files on an office network.

It can also help to improve data storage security: files are backed up automatically, and they can’t be misplaced or damaged by fire or flood, hugely reducing the potential for data loss. In the unlikely event of a fault, cloud data recovery is around four times faster than the same process in traditional computing and the failure can easily be traced back to the source.

  • Annoying video conferencing lag? Not anymore.

The ultra fast internet speeds will allow your customers to feel like they are in the room with you, even if they’re on the opposite side of the world. With Gigabit speed internet, lag free video conferencing will be the norm, helping to bring businesses together and become more efficient.

  • On demand services mean the end of expensive hardware

Traditionally, services come as packaged products – discs and wires that need ordering or parts that need setting up and installing. The speed of gigabit broadband allows for services to be web based, which can be used on demand. This is cheaper, more efficient and more reliable.
