Data Up

May 29, 2014

I remember the good old days

Back in early 90’s

The internet was new

Everyone was trying to get online

And we were all using…..

Dial up

Honey…

I just dialed up the internet

I am going to run to the hardware store

We should be connected….

By the time I get back

Yawn…….

After tolerating the dial up

For several years

The phone company

Came up with a new way

Of delivering the internet over copper

Welcome to the world of DSL

A big small step forward

Is there anyone out there still using DSL?

As we continued to thirst for

Faster access to information

Fiber was introduced

While copper was like driving down

A one lane road

Fiber was like driving on

A 24 lane highway

However;

As access to information

Was getting faster and faster

The cost was getting

Higher and higher

Deregulation was introduced

To bring competition to the field

Competition was designed to control prices

For a time

This apparently was not happening

What should we be looking at…

When we are buying access to information

Do we look for the lowest price?

Do we pay the higher price?

Is more better?

Are all speeds the same?

Should I want a faster download speed?

Or

Faster upload speed?

These are all questions everyone should be asking

We find

That many people are not asking these questions

Advertising is designed to

Spark an interest

Make people call

Get customers in the door

But as we know

Cheaper is not always better

You have to understand

What are your needs

There is no one size fits all solution

At HBS we listen

We evaluate what you are currently doing

Determine how to deliver

What you want

Designed to meet your needs

Several years back

Businesses were paying over $1000 a month

For fast data access

Slowly the prices began to come down

As competition entered the field

But companies were still paying

$600 – $700 a month for fiber

Enter…..

Comcast and Fios

You say Tomatoe ….

I say Tamatoe….

Both are good companies

Making a push to

Saturate the commercial market

Looking to capitalize on price and speed

Comcast and Fios

Are both tripping over themselves

Offering high speed data access

At a fraction of the cost

There are currently big savings

To be found in the data delivery field

HBS represents both Comcast and Verizon

Our services extend to lighting up

A center city building

Bringing access to all the tenants

To bringing phone and data capabilities to your office

Many clients are beginning to use Comcast and Fios

For redundancy

(As a fail over should their T1s or PRI go down)

Some keep the voice on their T1s or PRIs

And move their data to Cable and Fios

Not only will we guide you to the best solution

We will manage the installation

Delivering the product to your location

Getting you up and running

Providing service support

As the need arises

HBS is here

To guide our clients thru the

Maze of information

Delivering smart solutions

To your business

Here I am…

 

 

 

Sitting at my desk

 

 

Don’t you know I have….

 

A lot of things to do

 

 

And I am…..

 

 

Powerless

 

 

Comcast is down

 

 

Said they will have things

 

Up and running by

 

 

 

Yawn……

 

 

4:15pm

 

 

What am I supposed to do

 

In the meantime

 

 

I want to be connected

 

 

I got emails

 

To shoot out

 

 

I have to check and see

 

Where the energy market is

 

 

Is it up?

 

 

 

Is it down?

 

 

 

People are depending on me

 

 

Gotta make things click

 

 

 

Yet……

 

I am powerless

 

 

 

It is amazing how dependent

 

We all have become….

 

 

 

We are all wired

 

 

 

Sometimes that can be taken in

 

The literal sense

 

 

Strung out

 

 

We are soooo tied into…

 

 

All these electric gadgets

 

 

 

How did we ever survive?

 

Before the:

 

 

Internet

 

 

 

 

Oops…..

 

 

We’re back on line

 

 

 

 

Gotta go
