Time is money in the business world, and as such, network downtime means both loss of productivity as well as loss of money. Nearly all business technology today relies on the internet for some sort of core functionality, and as such it is important to choose an internet connection that will offer the highest level of reliability.

Uptime Guarantee

Uptime is agreed upon in a contract between the client and the internet service provider (ISP). It is typically with a 99.5, 99.7 or 99.9% uptime guarantee. Packetwors ensures 99.9% uptime on all of out internet connections. Uptime is doubly important if a business relies on the internet for VOIP calling, or other core communication services with employees and/or customers.

How Big is the Difference Between 99.5 and 99.9% Uptime?

The difference of just a few tenths of a percent can make a massive difference when averaged out over a year of internet service. View the following the chart for a comparison between 99.5, 99.7 and 99.9 uptime:


Downtime in Perspective

As shown in the chart, 99.5% uptime results in almost 2 days of downtime per year. This is enough to theoretically miss five full days of work, and all of the productivity and economics associated. 99.9% uptime on the other hand has only 1/5th of the downtime of 99.5%, and will keep a business operating smoothly for a full 35 hours more per year.

Packetworks Solution

Packetworks is able to provide completely stable networks for businesses that ensure 99.9% uptime on all connections. This connection type is essential for any business that relies on the internet in order to complete tasks and make sales.
