How Much is Your SMB Paying for Internet and Phone Service

Having reliable internet and phone services for your businesses today is essential for success. Fortunately, most major internet and cell phone companies are able to provide good services at a reasonable price in most situations. While this is obviously a good thing, it can also cause you to become complacent about the services you’re receiving. This may result in paying far more than you should for lower-quality services.

Some businesses, for example, sign a contract to get Internet and phone service for a set number of years. When the contract was signed, it may not have provided specifics for what type of internet connection would be used. Or, even if the technology was specified, it may be outdated. Despite the fact that your business may be getting older services, you are still paying the same rate. This is a problem because technology generally gets better and cheaper over time, so if you are still paying high rates for older technology, your business is really getting ripped off.

How Can IT Support Services Help?

It can seem difficult and overwhelming to take the time to review your current internet and phone services and research what types of alternatives are available. This, however, is just one of the many things that an IT support services team can do on your behalf. They keep up to date with the latest technologies and services that are out there, and can provide insights and advice regarding which ones would benefit you the most.

When it comes to your internet service provider, your IT support services team can help you to figure out what type of service you need, and how much it should cost. They can also help you to determine what types of contracts will benefit you the most. For example, when it comes to internet services, you generally do not want to sign a long-term contract since the speeds and bandwidth needs tend to change fairly quickly. With this in mind, your IT team may recommend getting a 1, 2 or at most a 3-year contract, and only if it provides services at a great price.

Evaluating Your Mobile Contracts

Another essential service that your business likely needs is mobile phones. As you undoubtedly know, mobile technologies are constantly evolving. This includes both the actual smartphones that your team uses and the wireless technology behind them.

Mobile companies are currently working on upgrading to the latest 5G technologies, which will give you greater speed and bandwidth than ever before. Some companies, such as TMobile, are rolling out 5G extremely quickly so that their customers can start enjoying the benefits right away. If your cell phone provider is not keeping up with the latest technologies, it may be time to consider making a change.

Even if you are currently in a contract, it may be possible to have another company buy out your contract so that they can provide you with improved services. An experienced IT services team will look at your current mobile services and help you to determine what the best option might be.
