Can I get a business connection at home?

During normal times, it’s usually not necessary to get business grade broadband installed at your home. However, what is normal since Covid?! If you’ve found yourself working from home or your business has gone fully remote, business grade broadband is a viable option with better speeds than on a residential connection. You’ll also get increased security and guaranteed bandwidth which are often bugbears of those running a business on a residential connection. If you rely on having a strong connection to work and you need to be online and available throughout the day, business internet might be worth investing in.

What is business broadband?

Business grade broadband is a connectivity solution normally used within offices, workplaces and businesses in any industry, any business size and across any sector. Business internet packages are often more comprehensive with what it includes in terms of better speeds, guaranteed bandwidth, service level agreements and the reliability of the service.

How much does it cost?

Like anything in life, prices vary depending on which solution you choose. The cheapest option won’t get you the same speeds and bandwidth you would if you chose a more expensive option. To see what’s available in your area, check out our broadband availability checker.

Why is business broadband more expensive?

A business connection is more expensive because, put simply, you get more from your connectivity package. As well as the faster speeds and greater bandwidth which we’ve mentioned above, you’ll also get service level agreements (SLAs) and a higher level of customer support should anything go wrong with your product. Often you can get cost-effective broadband and phone deals to combine your business communications in one package.

Is it faster than residential?

On the whole, yes business grade is faster than residential broadband. While download speeds might be relatively similar when receiving emails, downloading files etc, upload speeds are notably faster enabling you to upload files, host and hold video conferences and work seamlessly on shared data, drives and files securely.
