Unreliable Internet. Dropped video calls. Slower service during peak times.

If those are problems your business is suffering, you’re not alone. The truth is, most businesses share an Internet network connection — and that could be what’s slowing you down.

It’s not surprising when you think of it. With available bandwidth spread across users from multiple businesses, congestion and upticks in traffic during peak periods are normal. All of which can affect the speed and reliability of your Internet connection.

So what’s the solution? For many organizations, it’s Dedicated Internet Access (DIA).

What Is Dedicated Internet Access?

Dedicated Internet Access is exactly what it sounds like — a private connection dedicated exclusively to your business.

That means you’re not sharing your connection with other businesses. And that, in turn, offers you a more reliable, secure connectivity experience, without the delays and network congestion sharing can bring.

4 Benefits of Dedicated Internet Access

There are a number of ways your business can benefit from DIA, including:

  • Guaranteed Bandwidth

    Since your business isn’t sharing a connection, it’s easier for providers to guarantee the bandwidth that they offer — resulting in more reliable service. The best providers will put this in writing within your service level agreement (SLA), guaranteeing the amount of uptime you should expect and offering refunds if they don’t deliver.

  • Symmetrical Bandwidth

    Another product of shared Internet access is that download speeds are often higher than upload speeds — a product of higher demands. Dedicated Internet Access, on the other hand, offers symmetrical bandwidth. That means upload and download speeds are the same – so you’re able to upload large files faster, better access cloud solutions and improve the performance of video conferences.

  • Faster Speeds

    One of the challenges of sharing an Internet connection with other businesses is that their users are often online at the same peak times as yours. That added traffic can, in turn, slow down your Internet. With Dedicated Internet Access, it’s only your users you have to worry about. This gives you more control over your Internet performance — and helps you maintain faster speeds no matter what time of day it is.

  • Improved Security

    One final benefit of Dedicated Internet Access is that it’s also more secure — helping to keep your data safe. Since you’re not sharing a network connection, you add an extra layer of security to your connection — meaning your team can work on the cloud and make data transmissions with fewer concerns.

What Else You Should Look For

If you’ve decided Dedicated Internet Access is the option for you, then the next step is choosing the provider that will give you the best service for your business. So what else should you be looking for if you want to get the most out of your DIA?

  • Layer 2 and 3 Services

    Layer 2 and Layer 3 services allow businesses to handle large amounts of data on a single network. As part of your Dedicated Internet Access, they can increase speeds, make connections more scalable and help keep your networks secure.

  • A Choice of Networks

    When you’re offered a choice of networks and a range of service packages, you’re able to ensure you’re getting the best option for your business — putting you even further ahead on your performance goals.
