Business internet vs. residential internet

Business internet usually gets you the same speeds and performance as residential internet, but you also get better quality assurance and extra features that make it easier to run a busy operation. Residential internet is often cheaper but comes with fewer features and less robust customer support.

Many business internet plans come with 24/7 customer support and a service-level agreement (SLA), which guarantees specific bandwidth and performance benchmarks. If your provider falls short of your SLA, you may be entitled to reimbursements in the form of discounts, refunds, and more.

On a business internet account, you can also add extras like static IP addresses, 4G LTE backup, and VoIP phone service.

  • Static IP addresses give you an IP that never changes, letting you run a server or host company email addresses.
  • 4G LTE backup kicks into gear when your main internet connection goes out, letting you continue to run mission-critical applications like credit-card machines and point-of-sale software.
  • VoIP phone is a phone system that works over an internet line, giving you an affordable alternative to a landline phone number.

How much internet speed does your business need?

Your business needs at least 100Mbps speeds to a reliable connection for employees and/or customers.

A 100Mbps connection ensures that an office of four or five people can check emails, make video calls, and download files with minimal slowdowns or outages. But you should consider investing in faster speeds if you have a larger office.

Although it’s more expensive, restaurants and coffee shops that offer free Wi-Fi to customers can also benefit from faster speeds because it keeps customers happy and offers a selling point for your business.

Get fiber internet for fast, symmetrical speeds

Fiber internet is the most reliable internet you can get, and a fiber Wi-Fi connection can be a huge asset to a business.

Most internet connections give you much slower upload speeds compared to download speeds. On the other hand, fiber internet provides symmetrical speeds, meaning your uploads are just as fast as your downloads. Although it’s not absolutely necessary all the time, symmetrical uploads can give your business a crucial advantage when it comes to upload-intensive tasks like video conferencing, file sharing, cloud storage, and backing up files.


What upload speeds do you get from different internet types?

Cable1,200Mbps50MbpsSee Cable Providers
5G1,000Mbps50MbpsSee 5G Providers
DSL100Mbps10MbpsSee DSL Providers

Fast upload speeds give your office or restaurant a much larger capacity to upload data to the internet for multiple users. This saves your employees’ time and eases potential frustrations because you can backup files quicker without worrying about spotty connections on important work calls.

Businesses that do a lot of collaborative work or upload a lot of large design files need a lot of upload speed. Not all business internet packages come with the extra upload speed included, though, so check carefully when shopping for a business internet plan to get what you need.
