When your work requires you to regularly access the internet, breakdowns and lengthy loading times can disturb your working pace and make adhering to deadlines a challenge. This is why more and more organisations are choosing Ethernet First Mile to improve their working pace and create a more productive work environment. EFM offers a host of benefits that reduce the risk of internet breakdowns, speed up loading times and cut down costs, giving you and your organisation a range of opportunities to improve your working processes.
When your internet connection goes down you miss a lot of opportunities. Contact between your organisation and your clients is cut off as is contact between your organisation and suppliers and any online information you may need becomes inaccessible. In the time that it takes to wait for your internet to turn back on, precious time has been wasted – time that could have been spent serving your clients or completing work that is invaluable to your operations.
With EFM, your business needn’t suffer from an inconsistent internet connection. With EFM the risk of your internet connection going down is greatly reduced because of the multiple copper pairs used to create several circuits. If a fault occurs in one of the circuits, there are others that are used as back-up to ensure that you still have a connection. When you choose 2Connect as your EFM supplier, you also have the benefit of fast repairs. If your internet connection completely shuts down, you can turn to us for fast and efficient repairs, putting you and your internet back in business in a timely manner.
Less Waiting Time
A slow internet connection can mess with your sanity and reduce daily productivity significantly. If your business operates primarily online, loading times can have a significant impact on the amount of work that can be done in a day and over time these minutes spent during the day waiting for uploads and downloads to complete can add up and equate to hours if not days wasted. Slow response times can also be detrimental to your relationship with clients and customers. Today, one of the main features of customer service is quick response time and taking too long to respond to customers or for your website to respond when customers access it could be incredibly damaging to your business. You need a consistently fast internet connection to ensure that your business is able to meet the demands of your customers.
EFM is reliable, resilient and provides you with the bandwidth you need to speed up your work online. At 2Connect, we can offer guaranteed speeds of up to 35Mbps and due to your bandwidth being dedicated entirely to your organisation and not shared, your internet speeds will remain consistently high at all times of the day. You will also find that EFM has symmetrical bandwidth, which means that your internet performance will be consistently high regardless of whether you’re uploading or downloading data.
Reduced Cost Compared to a Leased Line
When budget is tight, small businesses may find themselves having to dedicate a significant portion of their profits to improving their internet performance, which means that they miss the opportunity to invest in improving other aspects of their operations. However, with EFM costs being sometimes as much as 50% cheaper than a leased line whilst offering the same benefits, smaller organisations can invest more of their income into improving their services and productivity. No quality is compromised when you purchase EFM and with it you may find your business overcoming the financial hurdle holding you back from growth.
Around 74% of UK businesses have EFM available and reap the benefits and it might be time for your business to be added to this community. Visit our product page to learn more about Ethernet First Mile or contact us today to learn more about our available products.
