The internet as we know it today has evolved over time and is now ubiquitous to our daily lives both at home and at work. Having secure and reliable access to internet connectivity and broadband is something that some people can take for granted but in certain parts of the world internet access is but a luxury.
We rely on broadband to give us high-speed access to the internet without which daily activities would suffer. Broadband connectivity has allowed businesses to operate efficiently and it has also contributed to new work practices such as people working from home and the age of BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices). These are revolutions in terms of how we carry out our working day and have also facilitated remote location work collaborations which has served to increase productivity as it is so time saving. Without broadband and connectivity a huge amount of time, resources and money would be wasted which can now be re-directed into different projects.
