The digital age has made the internet central to the lives of just about everyone on the planet. But it’s not just in our personal lives that it has become integral, running and operating a business also requires fast and reliable broadband.

However, different businesses have different needs and there is no cookie cutter broadband solution that adequately meets the demands of all retailers. Ensuring you have a plan that caters for functions such as video conferencing, surveillance, access to remote back-ups and cloud software is essential to most businesses.

That’s why it was fantastic that a few months ago NBN Co launched its nbn solution finder, an online tool specifically dedicated to getting a broadband plan that suits the needs of your business.

The solution finder helps determine the right speeds, committed bandwidth and service level assurance that will best help you run your business effectively. The catalyst for the tool was in response to NBN’s own research which indicated most Australian businesses do not know what business products and service attributes are required for their business demands.

For instance, the research found that a significant number of micro-businesses (1 to 4 employees) were operating under residential plans that do not cater for the many functions needed to run a business in 2019.

The key to running a business well is making sure you get bang for your buck. In the same way you go to great lengths to make sure any supplies you purchase are well priced and high quality, obtaining a good broadband plan is no different.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you visit the solution finder webpage and take the time to double-check whether your current internet deal is the best one for you and your business.

All the best for the week ahead!
