Can I get business broadband at home?
If you are looking to get business broadband at home because you are working from home or for any other reason, we can help you with getting fibre business broadband at your house.
What is business broadband?
As it states business broadband is broadband for businesses. Business Internet usually offers enhanced benefits compared to home Internet such as quicker fix times and priority support to name a few.
What is the difference between home broadband and business broadband?
Increased broadband speed
Depending on your provider, business internet usually has traffic priority. Meaning, business broadband may be faster than your home network.
You may also find that having your business broadband separate will help congestion on your network. As generally with home networks there are over 10 devices connected at any time using your broadband. So separating your business broadband means you will have access to faster broadband speed.
Shorter SLA’s and technical support
You may find that business broadband also has quicker SLA’s (Service Level Agreements), meaning should you have any problems your issue is dealt with promptly.
You will also find that business broadband providers offer a higher level of technical support compared to residential broadband providers. This will allow you to have peace of mind should you need help or advice with your network.
Business broadband with a static IP
With business broadband you get a static IP address which is helpful if ever needed to connect to your computer remotely or even for monitoring cctv remotely.
Should I get business broadband at home?
Yes. We advise that your home network and your business network should be kept separate for security reasons.
In the instance that your home broadband is hacked, they will have no access to your business broadband and data within the network.
As well as security, the benefits including priority support and traffic prioritisation should persuade you to get business broadband at your home.
