Jack Bedell-Pearce spoke at the Gatwick Diamond Educational Seminar about the importance of reliable business connectivity in relation to business performance:
Losing connection to the internet costs thousands of pounds to UK businesses - during 2016/2017, UK businesses are estimated to have had 149 million hours of internet downtime, the cost of which was £12 billion in lost productivity to the economy.
That's now a couple of years ago - today, this cost is almost certain to be much higher. When there is a lost connection, the average cost to an SME can range anywhere from £4,000 to £16,000.
Currently, you have around 4 widely available options for broadband- Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) 2+, FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet), and 100Mbps/1Gbps leased line - watch the video/span>for more details on the business connectivity options.
