High Speed Internet

  Technology with Integrity

By Tim Torian, Torian Group, Inc.

 

 

Comcast is now offering 50MB down / 10MB up internet for $190/Month in the Visalia area. The base package has been upgraded from 6MB Down/1MB up to 12MB/2MB ($60/Month). Existing Comcast business customers can double their bandwidth simply by powering off their Comcast modem for a few seconds.

This is clearly the best value in the area for internet service at present. For comparison, many office networks run at 100Mb.

The higher speed makes some things possible that were not practical before, such as online backup and remote servers. Particularly if you are using online services or “hosted” applications, higher internet speed will make a big difference in the performance of your work. It also gives you a choice to consider a hosted solution where it may not have made sense before. You can greatly simplify your maintenance costs if all you have are computers with an internet connection.

However, if the internet goes down, your hosted application stops working. Routers are now available with the ability to “fail over” to a different internet provider – You can keep your DSL service as a backup. Contact us for more information.
