With the government’s plans to deliver better quality, high-speed broadband across the UK already underway, many smaller businesses are already reaping the benefits of having faster, reliable connectivity for their business.
Faster broadband for SME’s has meant more opportunities for smaller companies to grow their businesses. It has enabled them to consider for the first time expanding their business abroad as this complete overhaul of the UK’s infrastructure has allowed them to offer customers faster service and increased reliability.
For many small businesses travelling abroad to meet with potential clients and investors can be a huge expenditure that their budgets simply cannot stretch to but now because of faster broadband making HD video conferencing more accessible and affordable for SME’s it has meant these companies are able to make efficiencies such as cutting hours of travel time with instantaneous video conferencing meetings.
The reality is that HD video conferencing, and other new communications technology, is widely available these days. It is no longer the case that you need to have superfast fibre-optic broadband and a huge monthly Internet expense. Over the last 5 years Internet speeds have more than doubled, meaning that just about any small business can benefit from the technology; even those operating from home as nowadays the Internet connection can handle it better with just 768 kbps required for full HD picture quality.
