A San Francisco-based general contractor specializing in residential housing needed more bandwidth to accommodate growth, multiple VPN connections to various job sites, video conferencing, and a cloud-delivered project management application.

The company turned to one of our trusted partners, a leading internet service provider (ISP), for a symmetrical fiber circuit. As a result, the contractor now enjoys reliable connectivity with no downtime.

If you’re in the market for reliable, fast and affordable internet connectivity to support cloud applications and promote productivity from anywhere, you should consider working with the same provider. Our technology advisors recently met with the supplier’s sales team to review their portfolio and how their fiber internet service can benefit businesses. Here’s a quick overview of what you should know about the company and what they can do for your organization.

Provider overview

Now one of the world’s best internet service providers, this supplier started out in 1999 with the idea that bandwidth could be mass-produced and sold based on price. Turning away from traditional voice-based networks owned by regional bell operating companies, this provider constructed their own IP data network. Subsequently, they now offer some of the highest-quality bandwidth at some of the lowest prices in the industry.

Featured offerings: Dedicated fiber internet access

As a multi-national Tier 1 facilities-based internet provider, this supplier maintains one of the top 5 networks globally and delivers high-speed internet, colocation and Ethernet transport to thousands of businesses around the world. Their dedicated internet access comes with an SLA for 100 percent network availability, as their network is Layer 3 protected and has a “self-healing” ring construction to guarantee uptime.

Other features and advantages of dedicated internet access from this provider include the following:

  • A network port reserved exclusively for you for a dedicated, symmetrical connection
  • More than 3,000 fiber-lit locations
  • Ethernet port speeds from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps
  • 99.9 percent packet delivery (intra North America)
  • Under 45 milliseconds of round trip latency
  • Installation guarantee of 17 business days for on-net and 90 business days for off-net

Additionally, if you have 6 months or less left in your contract with your current internet service provider, this ISP can potentially buy out your contract and provide the same (or likely better) service at no charge until your term expires. They can offer 6 months maximum of free service for multi-tenant office buildings and 3 months for carrier-neutral data centers. Typically, clients that take this deal end up with greater bandwidth for less than they paid their old provider.

Our trusted advisors can help if you’d like to learn more about fiber internet from this provider and others in the marketplace. With access to advanced tools and our vast partner network, we can generate objective comparison matrices to make choosing the ideal supplier for your business easier. On top of that, working with us won’t cost you more than going directly to the provider because of our price parity guarantee.
