Far too often, companies sign a lease first, then look at their internet options. This can be a big mistake. Even some very nice buildings have limited internet options or the wiring in the building does not support high enough speeds.
As companies use the cloud and SaaS more, bandwidth becomes ever more important for maintaining productivity. As a business manager, the last thing you want are expensive employees sitting around waiting to access their data.
Before you sign a new lease, do your due diligence on broadband speeds for the location:
- Ask the landlord what internet service providers are connected to the building and what cabling is installed in the building (ideally you want fiber).
- Contact at least 2 of the internet service providers and confirm that they can provide high-speed service to that location.
- If there are other tenants in the building, speak with them about their broadband speeds, keeping in mind what their needs are compared to yours.
Learning about your broadband options before signing a lease can save you a lot of hassle and frustration.
