What We Do: Broadband Internet

Internet Speeds

Organizations today are generating more data in a single day than the entire Internet did in the year 2000.

To keep up with the increasing data loads, businesses need larger and faster Internet connections. SDN offers Internet service that is scalable, dedicated and symmetrical, ensuring that your business can handle mountains of data with ease.

Are you unsure what speed connection is right for your business? Are you curious about the difference between a T1 and an OC48? Take a look at the comparison chart below.
