How Do You Avoid Overspending On Internet Bandwidth For Business?

The following four basic guidelines will help you avoid overspending on Internet bandwidth for business use:

1. Understand how much bandwidth you really use. For instance, use the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) statistics from your router to monitor usage.

2. Buy a usage-sensitive connection. Being able to accommodate bursty traffic at times is fine, but if you're only going to use 64 Kbps, then that's all you should be paying for.

3. Find an ISP that will offer you a flat service, which you will know the flat fee you're paying instead of the burstable service.

4. If possible, instead of having one "large" connection, consider buying two smaller connections for disaster recovery and load balancing reasons.
