1 For today s companies, a fast, reliable Internet connection has moved from being a convenience to a critical component of business success.

2 Wire your business for success High-Speed Internet is Critical to Success Today s small businesses rely on Internet access more than ever before. They depend on their high-speed Internet connections to run integral processes and programs, including , e-commerce, cloud-based applications, video conferencing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and more. ONE-THIRD of small and medium-sized businesses extensively use web technologies. Those with a strong web presence grew twice as quickly as those that had minimal or no presence. Source: McKinsey & Company Internet survey of more than 4,800 small- and medium-sized enterprises. Why Speed Matters for Business When crucial functions of a business are reliant on Internet connectivity, choosing a provider who can deliver the speed you need without interruptions is important. A slow or unreliable connection can hinder customer experience and reduce business productivity. By improving daily operations, such as

3 THERE ARE There are 28.5 million small businesses in the U.S. who depend on fast, reliable connectivity to compete with big business MILLION[2] SMALL BUSINESSES IN THE USA Source: SBA.gov Small Business Profiles for the States and Territories, February 2015 https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/advocacy/sb Profiles _0.pdf communications, file sharing, inventory management, sales applications and more, a business can increase productivity to new heights. The value of a faster Internet connection is the ability to reliably and consistently deliver solid results and keep pace with growing demands. This is why Cable ONE Business recently invested in new technologies and network upgrades to bring faster, more reliable Internet speeds to the communities they serve and equip their customers with a competitive edge. High-Speed Internet Improves Business Productivity Fast Internet access is a productivity-enhancing factor. It allows businesses to leverage bigger cloud-based applications and compete with larger businesses. Businesses need scalable solutions to meet the growing demand placed on their networks. Cloud application traffic is the fastest growing component of data traffic across the Internet. Cisco forecasts global cloud traffic will grow 4.5-fold from 1.2 to 5.3 zettabytes between 2012 and 2017, while overall global data center traffic will hit 7.7 zettabytes. 1 About 17% of that traffic will be fueled by end users accessing 1.

Source: Emergent Research clouds, video streaming, collaboration and connected devices, all of which contribute to the Internet of Everything, which is the networked connection of people, data, processes and things. Increasing productivity now depends on a lightningfast, reliable connection. The dependence on the Internet will only increase as businesses become more connected. Cloud computing and online collaboration means constant uploading and downloading over your Internet connection. Many organizations fail to adopt cloud applications due to 78% OF SMALL BUSINESSES (companies with less than 50 employees) will be fully adapted to the cloud by 2020 up from 37% in BY 2020 JOIN NOW Source: Emergent Research

5 their current Internet solution. Faster high-speed Internet speed means faster sharing of files between employees, customers and applications. A recent SanDisk survey 2 found that Americans spent 2.34 days a year on average waiting for files to transfer over their employers networks. By upgrading the speeds of their top three Business Internet plans, Cable ONE Business is helping their customers get more done in less time, which saves money and increases profitability. IDC Estimates that by 2020, business transactions on the Internet business-to-business and business-to-consumer will reach $ 450 BILLION PER DAY. Source: A Dependable High-Speed Internet Connection Means More Profitability A customer s Internet experience can greatly impact a business sales. In a recent study, Amazon found they can lose $1.6 billion in sales from a one second delay in page loading time. Google found that by slowing search results by just four-tenths of a second, they could lose 8 million searches per day Source: 3. Source:

6 A FASTER INTERNET CONNECTION ALLOWS BUSINESSES TO: Access and run cloud-based business applications faster Increase collaboration among employees, customers and vendors Share larger amounts of data and media files seamlessly Provide Internet access to more employees Improve online customer engagement In a 2014 Pew Research Center survey, 94% OF EMPLOYEES say they use the Internet, and a 54% majority say the Internet is important for them to perform their job function. Source: Pew Research Center The Digital Economy Runs on Big Data Big data is a very popular term used to describe the growth and availability of data. More data can lead to more accurate analysis for your business and greater decision-making capabilities. Big data is defined as data sets too large and complex for companies to manage without analytics tools. If your business has been operating for a year or more, you likely have a lot of big data sitting in your company records. Business data insights and analysis, both structured and unstructured,

7 can help businesses more accurately understand how to produce greater operational efficiencies and reduce costs and risks. Transitioning from using gut instinct to operating an analytics focused company is easier than ever. High-speed Internet service is an important factor in the ability to be successful in analytics initiatives. A faster connection allows users to upload and download larger amounts of data for analysis and consideration in business decisions for improved results. Retailers could increase their profit margins BY MORE THAN 60% through the exploitation of data analytics. Source:
