The Quality of Your Internet Connection Is an Important Metric to Track

The Quality of Your Internet Connection Is an Important Metric to Track

The Internet is a critical tool in your business’ toolbox, so it needs to be fast, reliable, and stable. What kinds of factors go into ensuring that you get the best, most reliable Internet connection? Find out in today’s blog.

What Impacts My Business Internet Speeds?

There are many things that could influence the strength of your Internet connection and its speeds. Here are just a few of them:

The Infrastructure Connecting You to Your ISP

It doesn’t matter what your contract is with your Internet service provider; the speed of your Internet connection will vary depending on the infrastructure managed by your ISP. For example, cable and fiber-optic lines are capable of delivering Internet at speeds much faster than your traditional DSL connection via the telephone network.

How Far Away the Network Centralizer is from Your Business

Data might move pretty quickly, but it still takes time to go from point A to point B. The farther away the network centralizer is, the longer it will take to transmit data to the destination.

How Many Users and Devices are Connecting at Once

When there is only so much to go around, naturally the Internet bandwidth will be smaller per user. Every device that connects to your Internet connection will slow it down to an extent, and the more there are, the slower the connection gets.

The solutions to a slow Internet connection are not always the easiest or the most possible. Sometimes it’s a matter of paying your Internet service provider more just for the speed boost. There are ways you can make the most out of what you currently have, though, and it all starts with optimizing your technology solutions.
