2 choosing the right connection for your business. All businesses today need access to the internet, whether it s for sending s, browsing the web, sharing files, or as a more fundamental part of their business for example for customer support or providing online services. At BT, we re passionate about making technology work for you and that s why our range of internet options are designed to meet every business needs. These are BT Total Broadband 1 - our standard broadband service, BT Infinity for business - our fibre optic broadband service and BTnet for dedicated internet access. They re fast and reliable so you can get more done in less time. And in the unlikely event that something does goes wrong, we promise to have you back up and running quickly so you can continue working with minimal disruption. To help you choose the right internet service, we ll take you through some of the things you should think about and explain how our different services compare. What to consider when choosing your internet connection. Speed. Download speed affects browsing the web, doing research, receiving s and downloading files. Whilst upload speed affects the time it takes to send s and files, upload to and manage web-sites, use cloud computing and applications like video conferencing. The speeds that you experience can also be affected by two things: 1 2 How many people at your site are sharing the connection The number of people sharing a connection can affect how quickly you can download or upload files. Businesses with a larger workforce may need to consider either increasing their bandwidth or having more than one connection. The network The broadband network is shared across businesses and consumers. Depending on the service you have, you might have to compete with everyone at the busiest times, which could slow your connection down. If this might be a problem, you could choose a service that gives you a higher priority than others or you could choose to have bandwidth dedicated to your use. Help and Support. The level of support you need depends on how fundamental to your business your internet service is. But in the first instance, you ll need to be able to contact us quickly and easily. All our services come with 24/7 technical support, so you can talk to a dedicated specialist team if you have a problem. BT Total Broadband and BT Infinity for business are extremely reliable, being available 99.99% of the time (which means less than 1 minute of downtime in a week). Where there is a problem, our target fix times are the end of the next working day for standard broadband and 40 hours for fibre. If your internet connection is vital to your business, it s worth considering BTnet with its 100% target availability and target fix time of 5 hours, backed up by a Service Level Agreement (SLA) and money back guarantee. Price. We understand that people need to manage their costs. That s why we have a range of solutions to help. Whether you re looking to get online quickly at an affordable price, or you re looking for a more comprehensive package with higher levels of service, we have the right internet connection to fit your budget. What does download speed really mean? It can be difficult to understand what the speed of the connection means as a number, so here are some examples of what that might mean in practice. With download speeds of 40Mb an HD video of 2GB will take just under a minute to download, but with speeds of about 300Mb, it would take only 6 seconds. For large files or presentations of about 30MB, it ll take 15 seconds to download 5 at 10Mb, but only 2 seconds at 80Mb. And if you re uploading 100MB of photos to a website, then at 0.5Mb it would take 50 seconds, but at 20Mb it would only take 5 seconds.
