If 2020 taught the world anything, it’s the importance of a good internet connection.
The words of Tony Smith, Director of Genius Technology Solutions and author of this article. Here you can learn from Tony’s expertise by taking a read through this latest release about telecommunications beyond lockdown and discover some key expertise you can’t get anywhere else.
Homeworking, video calls, streaming, education, and accessing life ‘online’ has become the new norm. Fast-forward to 2021 and the world is on the edge of normality. The children are back in education, but what does the rest of the year look like? Businesses continue to be run from the home and many will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
For any business owner, a good connection is as important as other utilities such as heat and light. Businesses are being run from the home or small office, and while a strong connection may feed into the home, what happens beyond this?
Our experience of 2020 has taught us some key lessons that we’d like to share with you:
- Security – the mixing of business and pleasure can result in security issues on a home connection where multiple downloads or gaming is in place. Malware can be shared onto the network creating security issues for your work network.
- Signal strength – for those running businesses in the home, sharing a connection or phone line can bring its challenges. A dedicated business broadband and telephone connection is a viable option using 4G technology.
- Internet usage – whether you’re a home-based business or have small premises, how do you filter and manage usage for both home and work demands.
In addition to home technology, we support sole traders and larger corporations with opening up to the public again and maximising the marketing opportunity available in recovering from COVID. We work with retail and hospitality to help them use their internet connection to engage with their customers and create awareness.
An important part of our ethos is helping our customers get the best phones and broadband connectivity. By understanding their situation and working with national providers including KCOM, we provide the best available service to support their customers.
