The Real Cost of DSL – A Time for Change

Our previous ECI blog post was all about how old telecom technologies can cost businesses more time and money than upgrading to the newest platforms. Today’s post continues with that topic by looking specifically at how DSL in particular is costing businesses more than the new technology which will inevitably replace it.

The Decline of DSL

In the past, the demands made of Internet-based applications by small and mid-sized businesses were traditionally within the realm of what typical DSL service could offer. Download and upload speeds were adequate for the applications being used; such as email and web browsing. Conversely, devices and applications that demanded higher bandwidth would be placed on the local network of a company and therefore were outside the restrictions of Internet access connections. The overall strategy was to avoid putting stress on a DSL or cable Internet connection which were unreliable, slow, and/or expensive.

DSL costs business more However, the bandwidth demands of small and mid-sized businesses have changed a great deal in the past five years due to rapid changes in technology. For instance, with the advent of cloud services more and more businesses are hosting their email server, files, customer database, projects, and much more on an external server. DSL connections simply cannot keep up with this amount of data being transmitted back and forth.When one examines the numbers, the dramatic nature of this shift away from DSL (referred to as the DSL Death March) is clear. AT&T, the largest Internet service provider in the U.S., has reported that they lost close to 615,000 classic DSL connections in the first quarter of 2012. This is on top of a decline of 636,000 connections in the fourth quarter of 2011. This level of decline is even faster than what had been expected.

The Rise of Fibre

So what have these businesses been switching to? Most are switching to fibre connections to support all of their Internet traffic. Fibre optic lines are significantly faster than traditional DSL or cable connections. With fibre lines being rapidly introduced rapidly new areas and the subsequent cost declining, the decision to switch over has never been easier. Fibre is also more scalable which means that, if needed, higher speeds can be achieved without having to upgrade equipment. As well, fibre service providers offer shorter response times to outages. When all of these factors are considered, the decision is a no brainer.

Along with the cloud computing services such as email, database, and file storage; businesses are also looking to host their telephone system off premises. Hosted telephony can be cheaper, easily upgradable and simple to use. However, without an excellent network backbone, the reliability of hosted telephony becomes quite low with dropped calls and terrible voice quality. Fibre solves this scenario without question with its undeniable fast speeds for both uploading and downloading. As such, the speed at which businesses move from DSL to fibre will continually increase.
