Is there a “best” way for a business to connect to the Internet? Is one type of connection “better” than another? When should a business consider changing its mode of access?

The answer is – it depends.

How your business connects to the Internet depends on:

  • How much Internet traffic your business generates
  • How large your average files are
  • Your budget
  • Where your business is located
  • What you use the Internet for
  • How important the speed of the connection will be to you.
