With the proliferation of new computing devices like tablets and smart phones, in addition to the vast developments in cloud computing and real time data apps, many businesses are finding that their current bandwidth is not adequate. Since most businesses sign two to three year contracts for their broadband Internet service, it can be difficult for a business to anticipate its future broadband needs. So what’s a business to do to protect itself in the future, without over-subscribing to bandwidth now?

A cost effective and easy solution is to choose an Internet service provider that offers scalable bandwidth. By scalable, I mean that you can easily increase your bandwidth as your business Internet needs grow. But be aware that not all “scalable” bandwidth will be flexible enough for your needs, and you might need to purchase additional hardware. For instance, if you are a T1 user, you can double your bandwidth by adding another T1. Two T1s are referred to as “bonded T1s”. By bonding two T1s, you can increase your broadband from 1.5 Mbps to 3 Mbps. Note that as you add T1s, you may need to purchase additional equipment for Ethernet hand-off.

But what if you want 4 Mbps or 5 Mbps? If you’re utilizing T1s, you must add bandwidth in increments of 1.5 Mbps. So you can go with 4.5 Mbps or 6 Mbps.

One good option for businesses that want more flexibility is enterprise broadband from Skyriver. Skyriver delivers scalable Ethernet broadband to businesses who demand performance, affordability and agility.
