Leased lines might seem an obvious choice, but the study carried out by O2, in partnership with the Centre for Economic and Business Research, reveals that a mistrust in newer technologies is causing many businesses to persist with standard business broadband instead.

ADSL may be sufficient for more basic operations such as internet surfing or sending emails, but it doesn’t provide the necessary performance to reliably run solutions such as VOIP, VPN and Cloud Computing.

While some businesses are benefitting from working with a leased line provider, many lag behind, slow to adopt home working or cloud-based unified communications technologies that need higher bandwidth solutions.

The performance and reliability of leased line connectivity from a tried and tested provider, can allow a business to run next generation technologies, with the necessary capacity and future proofing needed to support growth.
