During the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses embraced flexible working, and recent research reveals that both employers and employees alike, expect it to continue long into the future. Collaboration apps such as Microsoft Teams became the centerpiece of the digital workplace, allowing people to work from anywhere. This situation made people realise how important connectivity really is, and the huge impact on productivity and growth caused by poor connectivity, leading to staff frustration and inefficiency. However, a good internet connection opens up a world of possibilities for businesses. Here are the top three ways connectivity can help your business to grow: 

1. Taking advantage of new technology opportunities 

Our world is now driven by data and technology so being able to fully utilise them provides a definite competitive edge. More and more, technologies such as telephony or instant messaging are now cloud-based and require high-speed connectivity. This will become even more prominent with the dawn of Artificial Intelligence. 

2. Increased cyber security 

39% of businesses have reported a rise in the number of cyber security attacks in the last 12 months. Cybercriminals can do a lot of damage to your business by targeting your finances, however, they can also have a severe impact on your brand. 4G is extremely reliable, well tested, and has been proven in its capabilities; but furthermore, 5G provides a more secure service so businesses know that they’re not just investing in better connectivity, but also improved security. 

3. Increased Productivity

Every year, £494 per employee is lost in productivity costs due to a slow internet connection. While with a high-speed connection, staff can work to their most productive and efficient potential. Besides, 36% of hybrid workers report being more productive and 34% more in control of their work when working from home.
