Pricing and Costs of Broadband Internet
Find the broadband Internet access plan that best suits your business budgetBroadband Internet can make your online business transactions move faster, but at what cost? The cost/benefit aspects of business Internet access should take not just dollars into account, but other business assets like mobility, speed, and network stability, as well.
The pricing and costs of broadband Internet depend, more than anything else, on what kind of Internet access you're shopping for. There are several main categories of broadband Internet access that may be useful for your business, each with their own advantages and disadvantages:
1. Satellite broadband Internet offers Internet access in areas where it otherwise might not be possible, but can be disrupted by physical obstructions or severe weather.
2. Wireless broadband Internet plans offer cable- and wire-free connectivity, but you have to purchase or lease expensive equipment for each computer to be connected.
3. Cable, DSL and T1 or greater lines offer fast, often inexpensive connections, but sacrifice mobility.

Wire into a land-bound broadband Internet serviceCable, DSL, T1 and other wired Internet options are fast and well-established, stable technologies capable of serving a large office at relatively low prices. These also offer the option of being bundled with other services, such as telephone lines, to save money on services that your business needs anyway.
- You can sometimes secure a better rate for business broadband Internet access if you are willing to sign up for a commitment/service plan that guarantees you'll be purchasing services for an extended time, usually from one to three years. The downside of this is that there may be extra fees associated with canceling or changing your service plan or provider before the contract period is up.
