An Introduction To Direct Internet Access (DIA)


By Data Installations & Supplies ltd

One of the most important components of running an efficient organisation or business is a fast, reliable internet connection. In our modern day, carrying out some of the most basic tasks online can seemingly take forever if internet speeds are low. And this is certainly not ideal for businesses and organisations who are trying to carry out their operations and services for customers. To ensure this is avoided, there are some robust solutions available. Direct Internet Access is one of the best solutions for businesses who require continuous and reliable internet access.

What Is Direct Internet Access?

Direct Internet Access in simple terms is a direct connection over a variety of media types to the Internet. Depending on your needs this can be via:

Business Broadband

Business Broadband offers ADSL and FTTC Internet connectivity options for business owners who require high speed, cost effective connections with dedicated UK support.

Not only is it cost effective, but it has quick installation times. However, it’s often a contended service particularly during peak times and business broadband has poor fix SLA’s.

Ethernet Services

Ethernet services deliver robust, uncontended connectivity for organisations that want high speed Internet access, secure data transfer with the ability to converge voice and mission critical data across one connection. These services boast high speeds, are scalable to meet customer needs as they grow and possess dedicated bandwidth guaranteeing performance. Ethernet services also have guaranteed fix SLA’s. It’s important to note that there are higher costs and slower deployment times involved though.

What are Ethernet services?

Ethernet internet access is ideal for enterprises, as it has high-bandwidth which connects to local area networks (LANs) and public internet to streamline the whole performance of their WAN network.

Why Choose Direct Internet Access?

There are many reasons why business owners should choose DIA including:

  1. It’s quick to install.
  2. It will save your business money in the long run.
