Budgets are tight enough already, the last thing anyone wants to do is pay for something a provider isn’t delivering. To that end, something every office has is an internet connection but it never surprises me to see how few actually test their connection speeds to confirm they are getting what they pay for.
Granted, internet service providers (ISP) and their ability to deliver the connection speeds they promise have come a long way in the last few years, but it never hurts to confirm. And if your organization operates in a rural location, you run an increased risk of spotty and/or underperforming connection speeds.
The good news is testing, and more importantly tracking, connection speeds is easier than you might think.
I published an article today at ArtsHacker that walks you through the process along with offering pointers on how to test direct, wireless, and cellular connections.
