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 for more details on the business connectivity options.
