For small companies, Internet access is no longer a luxury; it's a business necessity. A core part of small-business productivity, the Internet is now used to send high volumes of e-mail, conduct business research, store presentations for client viewing, and provide remote workers with access to key information back at the office. All this, however, has made additional demands on bandwidth, leaving many small businesses yearning for faster access options.
If you're dreaming of moving into the fast lane, now is the time to start considering your options. Recent advancements have made existing technologies like 56 Kbps modems and ISDN technology more attractive than ever. Moreover, faster technologies now being introduced, such as cable modems and Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Lines (ADSL), make some of the existing choices seem downright poky.
Your options will depend heavily on the services available in your area, your business needs and your budget. However, with a wide range of choices hitting the market in the near future, there will soon be more ways than ever to zip down the Internet like a Ferrari on the open highway.
