We believe that backup broadband is an essential for anyone who runs a business. Backup broadband simply means that instead of a single cable carrying your telephone and broadband connections you have two, one acting as a standby line which is ready to be activated if your primary broadband fails.
If your primary broadband does fail you will simply be able to reconnect by plugging the backup cable into your router in place of your current cable, giving an almost seamless changeover to your backup broadband. Your business can be practically guaranteed broadband connection at all times in just 4 simple steps:
STEP 1: Find out if your office has a second data cable, get one installed if not
STEP 2: Get your broadband provider to supply a backup broadband service. Not all do so you may
need to change
STEP 3: In the event of failure, unplug primary data cable from router
STEP 4: Connect secondary cable to router
Steps 3 and 4 are quick and simple to do, reconnecting your business to the internet in a matter of minutes, but you can only reap the substantial benefits of this system if you have put steps 1 and 2 in place before the problem occurs; forward planning is the key to minimising downtime and ensuring business continuity.
Just think how much panic you could save yourself by knowing that in the event of a broadband failure you could still access the internet. Do you really want to risk not having backup broadband? It’s easy to ignore right now but the most common thing we hear from customers who experience significant broadband failure is that they wish they had set up a backup broadband service beforehand so that their business did not suffer.
