In today’s business place Internet connectivity plays a critical role. Businesses rely on their websites and web mail to stay connected to potential and current customers. Also, an increasing number of employees spend their days using the web as a tool to complete their work. The Internet is an amazing tool that we have come to rely on for research, marketing and more. Surely the importance of Internet connectivity is no surprise to you as a business owner, but at Fastblue.com we have come to realize that many of our customers are not thoroughly educated about the wide array of Internet connectivity options available to them and their business. In this article we would like to introduce you to Burstable Internet. This connectivity option can be a remarkably cost effective choice for the right business.
Typically when selecting an Internet solution, one must determine just how much bandwidth they want to buy OR pay for a month of bandwidth at a level that supports the date of their peak usage (and often far exceeds their typical day to day usage). If you need to determine or estimate how much bandwidth you will need to support your business’ website, webmail, business critical applications, and browsing you are faced with the very difficult task of predicting your needs. As you can imagine it is sometimes difficult to estimate the necessary amount of bandwidth.
The goal is obviously to pay for just enough bandwidth to support your business. You don’t want to buy too much – because that unused bandwidth will essentially be a waste of money. At the same time, you don’t want to buy too little, because an instance may arise where you need more bandwidth to support IT updates or large file transfers and you don’t want a lack of bandwidth halting your productivity or costing you an arm and a leg at a crucial moment of necessity. If instead you choose to pay a set rate that is associated with your peak day of usage at the end of the month, you may be wasting a great deal of money – especially if your bandwidth needs are excessive for just a small fraction of time over the course of the month.
Burstable Internet connectivity is a wonderful Internet solution that allows users to burst beyond their set purchased amount of bandwidth for a very small percentage of time over the course of a month billing cycle. This way you can pay for the amount of bandwidth that you will need 95% of the time and at those rare moments when you require additional bandwidth, you will be supported instantly and without the addition of penalty charges.
