Affordable Fibre - Driving down the cost of the Cloud.
Yellowspring have recently seen the cost of private fibre circuits reducing significantly. Does this mean that SME’s can finally begin to seriously consider adopting Cloud infrastructure and services?
Several of our new customers have for some time been considering shifting their antiquated on-premise servers over to a hosted cloud solution. Whilst there are many considerations to make when exploring this move, the biggest question (and starting place) is always – do I have enough bandwidth and is it reliable enough?
Whilst businesses in the UK country wait (sometimes indefinitely) for low cost broadband availability, many are growing frustrated with the inability to make the change. They are simply hand tied due to poor traditional DSL performance – either they are too far from the exchange, it is overly contended and latent at peak times, it drops in and out of sync, or a combination of all of these.
Exploring the adoption of a private Internet circuit has sometimes been the only option left available – but the costs of implementing these services have traditionally been too high and therefore unjustifiable. But things are changing.
In the last few months there has been a significant change of approach in pricing by the major carriers. Yellowspring have seen reductions in quoted fibre circuits of as much as 50% in some circumstances – reducing annual end user costs to just a few hundred pounds a month (when taking 36 month terms), which includes free installation (subject to site survey).
Considering the same technology outlay a few years ago would often cost upwards of £1000 per month, it is pleasing to see things moving in the right direction.
In addition, we are also now seeing private fibre reach geographic areas not seen before – availability has never been so good.
