In 2018 every business needs access to a fast and reliable Internet service. This includes businesses of all sizes including those with multiple locations and employees who work remotely. Global data usage in business is rising every year, which means that the demand for bandwidth and fast Internet is only going to increase. Combine this data demand with the increasing uptake of cloud computing and CRM solutions, and it becomes clear that fast Internet speed and reliability is a must-have for any business to succeed.
The costs of not having a fast, reliable Internet service was highlighted recently in a Sydney Morning Herald article. While it highlighted the slow and patchy Internet issue for regional Australian businesses, this issue also affects businesses in cities and suburbs.
The results from a recent Xero survey of 1,000 small businesses in Australia revealed:
- 48% of businesses struggled to reach and connect with new customers because of the unreliable and patchy phone and Internet connection
- 70% of businesses say poor connectivity is hindering their efficiency and productivity
- 62% of businesses believe poor Internet and phone connection affect the quality of customer service.
But according to Trent Innes, Managing Director of Xero, “despite poor connectivity, business owners are staying put, and reluctant to move in search of a better Internet.” If your business has patchy or slow Internet, there are 3 more additional hidden costs that you may not have considered.
- Reduced business profits
Does your business rely on a CRM system to respond to customer inquires, collect leads and track sales? If your Internet is patchy or slow, it can affect the speed at which your website page loads. The speed at which consumers demand information now means that if your website doesn’t load in under 2 seconds, they will leave your site – perhaps going to your competitors.
- Increased frustration and stress for your employees
When your employees arrive at work each day, they’re ready to complete their tasks. A slow or patchy Internet connection not only slows them down, but also can affect their morale and motivation.
- Reduced business productivity
If your business has patchy or slow Internet, your employees will probably be spending a considerable amount of time waiting. Everyday work tasks like transferring files, waiting for attachments to load and web pages to open reduce productivity and can affect motivation. In 2013 a survey by Sandisk discovered the average employee wastes 1 week per year waiting on their company’s network to respond.
If your patchy and slow Internet is affecting your employees productivity and customer service, it may be time to consider an alternative provider. Find out how Summit business Internet plans and solutions can give your business fast, reliable Internet.

I’ve spent a lot of time speaking to business owners about the impact of slow internet on their business. It amazes me when business owners tell me that “there’s nothing better available”, “we come in on the weekend to get the work done” or “we can’t afford it”.
Time is the one resource that is more precious than any other.
Did you realise that losing 20 minutes of productivity a day equates to 3 days a year. Time that you’ll never get back in your life.
Now, when we look at the compounding effect of this lost time and money on your business
- Team of 5 = 15 Days a Year or $2,194 in Wages
- Team of 10 = 30 Days a Year or $4,389 Wages
- Team of 20 = 60 Days a Year or $8,779 Wages
- Team of 50 = 150 Days a Year or $21,948 in Wages
*Wage data based on the Fairwork minimum wage of $18.29/Hr
Of course I haven’t even started to calculate the impact on
Job Efficiency & Productivity
Technology Improvements and Savings
Increase in revenue due to increased productivity
Decrease in staff wage costs due to increase in productivity
and the list goes on….
So what has Summit done to address this?

Businesses in a notorious internet connectivity black spot in the Melbourne suburb of Braeside now have fast and reliable web access – and without the NBN.
The improvement is a result of Summit Internet’s new fixed wireless broadband tower installed on top of a commercial building in Braeside.
Summit Internet CEO Greg Lipschitz says his team has been busy connecting businesses to the service since the new tower went live earlier this month.
“Many businesses in this area were battling poor connectivity previously; so this represents a very welcome and positive change for local Braeside businesses,” he said.
Local businessman Gerrard Lowe of Lowe Financial says “Summit have been excellent to deal with. Our whole office is very happy with the new faster internet service.”
Businesses in Braeside haven’t been alone in their internet issues. A recent survey of more than 1,000 small businesses across Australia found a majority of respondents were experiencing negative impacts on their efficiency and productivity as a result of poor broadband services.
While issues relating to speed and reliability are more prominent in regional and rural Australia, metropolitan black spots such as the one in Braeside aren’t uncommon.
“Summit Internet is stepping in to fill these service gaps in metropolitan areas where viable,” said Mr. Lipschitz.
“We run fibre to a suitable building in the general area, then use our robust wireless technology to deliver a top quality service to other premises.”
Mr. Lipschitz stated what his company offers isn’t just a band-aid or workaround, it’s a fully-tested commercial-strength solution.
“Summit Internet is able to offer businesses cost-effective unlimited data plans with fast, reliable speeds plus access to the latest VoIP Hosted PBX solution.”
With fast internet now a critical service for businesses, Mr. Lipschitz says Summit Internet are leading the way in turning on high-speed and highly reliable broadband for business in Melbourne’s most affected suburbs.
With plans to add another 3 base stations before Christmas 2017, Summit Internet is set to be the leader in wireless broadband telecommunications.
