We are currently working with one of our IT support clients in Hull who have a fibre internet connection from Kingston Communications. Their business relies on this internet connection for everything from communication to stock control to order fulfilment. Without the internet, they have no business. They needed the peace of mind that if their internet were to fail they would still be able to continue operating their business – as downtime would cost them money and customer confidence.
How would you cope if your internet connection failed?
We have installed a redundant internet connection for their peace of mind. That is a second backup internet connection which will take over if the first one fails, providing a business continuity plan in the event of an outage. The cost, at around £30 per month, is a fraction of what losing their internet connection would cost them. We have heard of businesses losing their connection when workers cut through a cable and it taking weeks for normal service to be resumed.
Even if you are outside of the Hull area in Lincolnshire of East Yorkshire and are able to choose between internet providers, it is not enough to simply sign up with two different ISPs: they all share the same cables so if one went down so would the other. We can help in this situation too with an over the air, 4G or point to point connection, just give us a call to discuss your needs.
In many cases it will be possible to use the second connection along with ‘load balancing’. This combines both of your connections for a faster download speed, and means that instead of paying for a backup internet line just for business continuity – and never using it, it forms a seamless part of your overall internet connection.
