Best Internet Plans For Your Company

Best Internet Plans For Your Company

by Weave Asia

In this age of connectivity, it is imperative to ensure that your business has a suitable broadband to ensure employee productivity and business success. In this article, we explore the factors you’ll need to consider when choosing the internet plan for your company.

Here are some factors to consider before deciding on which internet plans best suit your business:
Size of company and amount of traffic
The size of your company will determine the amount of mpbs you’ll need to conduct virtual meetings, download files, stream content, and so on.

It would also be good to consider the router you’ll be using; will it be able to handle the amount of traffic you and your employees require to effectively run the business.

 

  • Level of support required
    Next to consider is the level of support you are providing to external parties such as vendors and customers. The larger you are and the more you rely on e-commerce, the larger the plan you will need to subscribe to. Also take into account the support provided by the internet provider; most providers in Singapore offer a 24/7 support hotline which will be helpful if you are running an e-commerce, digital media or other businesses that require round the clock assistance.

  • Security
    Most internet plans come with standard protection. However, you do need to determine the level of internet security your business requires, such as anti-spam software, files protection and cloud backup. As cyber attacks are rampant these days, you definitely need to take this into consideration.

  • Length of commitment
    Depending on your length of commitment, some providers may be able to offer a better deal if you are able to sign two-year contracts and/or pay annually.

  • Dynamic vs Static
    Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Singapore provide two options to choose from for business broadbands- a static broadband and a dynamic broadband. The static broadband offers a static internet protocol (IP) address that is a constant address whereas a dynamic broadband may change your IP address each time you connect to the internet. Businesses who host their own web and email servers usually require static IP. For businesses who require heavier security and protection from hackers, a dynamic broadband would be a better choice.

  • Internet Service Providers (ISP)
    There are four main ISPs in Singapore which you could compare and consider- Singtel, Starhub, M1, and ViewQwest.


    Here’s an overview of the packages for dynamic broadband:
