What can Gigabit Broadband do for your business?
When it comes to effective communications and good customer service, it’s hard to overestimate the importance of a fast and reliable internet connection.
Vodafone Gigabit broadband, powered by SIRO, delivers speeds of up to 1 gigabit (1,000 megabits per second) to Irish businesses, offering the kind of connections that can send large amount of data around the world and improve customer experience, all at the same time.
What could having access to this mean for your business? It could open up an enormous range of services and abilities that could in turn make a real difference to your competitiveness. To begin with, faster access means more productivity, allowing staff to get the same amount of work done faster than they could before.
At the same time high speed broadband facilitates remote working. With fast connections staff can access applications and data from anywhere using laptops, tablets and smartphones. They can schedule work activities around family life while still getting their work done, and they can even reduce unnecessary travel in the process. This can help with staff retention and attracting new recruits looking for a good work life balance.
High speed fibre facilitates high definition video conferencing which can mean less need for business travel and less carbon burnt in the process, a real consideration for many companies keen to improve their carbon footprints.
Meanwhile fibre also facilitates access to cloud technologies that allow even small companies to get access to the products and services only very large companies used to be able to afford before. Using these, you could lower your operational costs by paying for applications as-a-service rather than up front, and rethink how your business operates as a result.
Looking forwards, many companies will also want to investigate the potential of technologies like the internet of things (IOT) to bring new and exciting business opportunities to life, all built on the back of a strong internet connection.
From the point of view of regional diversity, using fibre broadband it’s no longer so important where a company is located. Fibre levels the playing field for business located outside the major urban centres, giving them access to the same window on the world as any other company.
Summed up, high speed broadband can have a massive impact on all aspects of how our society is organised, from opening up opportunities for high quality commerce to improving educational opportunities and health care, making better quality local government available and just generally improving quality of life.
Fibre-based broadband is the next generation of internet connectivity, it’s faster, more reliable and uses fundamentally different technology to connect your business. Where traditional broadband uses copper wire and is delivered using the existing telephone lines, fibre-based broadband is designed with the needs of the 21st century in mind.
The future is here, and it’s available from Vodafone.
