How much time does poor quality broadband cost your business?

In today’s day and age, it is unacceptable for your business to suffer due to a bad or slow Broadband connection.

How Much Time Do Your Employees Waste at Work due to poor internet?

Recent research undertaken worldwide with around 8,000 participants, show businesses lose an average of 38 hours per year for each office worker due to slow access and downtime.

The days have long passed when the Internet was just used for web surfing and emails. Nowadays, businesses need to be constantly connected to their clients through different media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, so that they can strengthen their brand image and promote their products.  However, staying connected through social media platforms is just the tip of the iceberg of what the Internet actually has to offer. Thanks to the cloud computing and hosted service providers, businesses can now perform a myriad of everyday functions online, including using hosted phone systems.

All this cannot be done without a secure, reliable and, above all, speedy internet connection.

Is your business still struggling on ADSL?

Are you on a cheap as chips, no frills contended symmetrical broadband service?

How much is your employees lost time costing your business each month?

Well that is fairly simply to calculate. Take the average weekly salary of your employees, multiply that by the number of employees who use the internet, then divide this by 12. Is the figure surprising?

If we take the average pay for an Office Administrator in Sydney, $46,428 per year, the weekly salary is $892.85. With, say 10 staff in the office, your business would lose $744 a month due just to save a few dollars on your internet.
