For many small businesses, losing connection to the internet is something that must be avoided; With so many business processes relying on connetivity, savvy business owners are looking for ways to minimise the risk of internet downtime and keeping their business working.
Start with a high quality ADSL connection from a reputable ISP like Internode is a very good start. But there are still things that go wrong, even mundane things like the council digging up the phone lines in the street. The good news is that there is a way you can avoid these risks.
The Billion 7402NX is an ADSL router that will also connect to a 3G service, and automatically fail over to the 3G service if your ADSL fails. When your ADSL service is restored, the router will switch back to the faster, more reliable ADSL service.
To get this benefit, you will need to sign up for a 3G service with a USB type “dongle”. We’d generally recommend Telstra for the 3G option, as you are less likely to have coverage problems, and their equipment is usually better tested. Once it’s all setup, it’s worth having the solution tested regularly so you know it’s there to keep you online if your ADSL fails.
