Can I use home broadband for my business?

The simple is yes. There is no issue running your business on home broadband but be aware that business broadband packages come with better performance and service levels.

In the event of an outage in your area, customers with a business broadband connection will receive priority.

Business broadband is as competitively priced as home broadband. In some cases, cheaper.

Other benefits of business broadband include:

  • More consistent speed as ISPs tend to prioritise business connections
  • Better upload speeds
  • Static IP addresses if you want to host your own servers or enable remote access to company resources
  • Some business connections are backed by the Service Level Agreement (SLA) which guarantees the fast resolution of issues. If your business broadband provider does not resolve issues in accordance with the SLA, you can claim compensation if you have experienced a loss due to prolonged outages.
  • Business broadband packages have the option to add call bundles to help control telephony costs for your business.

In conclusion, if you have a workforce of 10+ in the same office or rely heavily on your internet connection in the day-to-day running of your business, you should consider business broadband over a home broadband connection.
