“Not all internet connections are created equal” rings true on multiple levels but even looking past simply the speed/bandwidth discussion there’s another way your internet might be a bit lopsided in ways that could be harmful for the day-to-day running of your business.
Asymmetrical broadband is a standard when it comes to consumer broadband as most end-users in that space are likely to need a lot more bandwidth for their downloading than uploading but in business this is not always the case.
Gigabit internet simply refers to connections exceeding speeds of 1 gigabit per second but when referring to it in a business context it usually bears with it the connotation that it’s 1 gbps in both directions, i.e. upload and download, which means it’s symmetrical.
We’ve seen a big increase for gigabit broadband in London, as well as across the UK as a whole, and there’s a good reason for this too! An increasing amount of bandwidth-hogging applications and processes requiring an equal flow of information into your business as well as out of it mean an asymmetrical internet connection would simply not do the job.
