  • This case study is on a Sole Trader who owns a small Arts Management company in Bray, Co. Wicklow. The company is operated from home and therefore needs always on Internet access. The business specialises in Event Management for music gigs. This means the business is looking for high speed internet that will allow the upload of videos and images and also will be looking for a landline to co-ordinate these events. In this presentation the research will allow the company to identify the internet package with the best fit and the best price.
  • “Broadband is defined as a high bandwidth connection to the Internet. Broadband is easier and faster to use than the traditional telephone and modem as information can be sent and downloaded much quicker”. (Broadbandguide, 2012)You can gain access to broadband though Cable, Satellite or through a phone line. Through these mediums large amounts of information are carried at a high speeds to your computer.
  • Types of Broadband?DSL Broadband: Digital Subscriber Line is a technology that delivers broadband over your phone line. DSL allows you to download in real time.  ADSL Broadband Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line is a technology where Information is downloaded more rapidly than it is uploaded. This form of technology is very useful to businesses as it is high speed download time.  SDSL Broadband: Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line is a technology that uploads and downloads information at the same speed. Although this type of broadband requires an extra telephone line it is useful for homes or businesses that send large volumes of information.  Cable Broadband- Cable broadband can only be offered to a business or a home if a company has cabled your street. Cable not only offers broadband but also television and phone services.  Satellite Broadband: Is delivered via satellite and through a dish antennaThere are 2 types of satellite services: One-way satellite services download information via satellite and upload information via a telephone or IDSN line. Two-way satellite services download and upload information via satellite. This is a means of high speed internet although it can be affected by weather and is very expensive to install. (Broadbandguide, 2012)Wireless Broadband: This type of broadband requires an antenna to be installed to get connection to the Internet. Works by utilising Radio Waves to carry a signal to your computer. DSL Broadband: Digital Subscriber Line is a technology that delivers broadband over your phone line. DSL allows you to download in real time.  ADSL Broadband: Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line is a technology where Information is downloaded more rapidly than it is uploaded. This form of technology is very useful to businesses as it is high speed download time.  SDSL Broadband: Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line is a technology that uploads and downloads information at the same speed. Although this type of broadband requires an extra telephone line it is useful for homes or businesses that send large volumes of information.  Cable Broadband: Cable broadband can only be offered to a business or a home if a company has cabled your street. Cable not only offers broadband but also television and phone services.  Satellite Broadband: Is delivered via satellite and through a dish antennaThere are 2 types of satellite services: One-way satellite services download information via satellite and upload information via a telephone or IDSN line. Two-way satellite services download and upload information via satellite. This is a means of high speed internet although it can be affected by weather and is very expensive to install. Wireless Broadband: This type of broadband requires an antenna to be installed to get connection to the Internet. Works by utilising Radio Waves to carry a signal to your computer. (Broadbandguide, 2012)
  • Mobile Broadband: “Mobile broadband is provided to customers through mobile phone signals and uses 3G services. 3G technology is made possible by two complementary technologies; HSDPA and HSUPA (high speed download and upload packet access, respectively). Mobile broadband can be accessed with a number of devices, including mobile phones, mobile dongles, MiFi units and data cards. In most cases mobile dongles are USB-compatible and plug into the laptop, PC or device. Mobile dongles are essentially portable modems, and are also referred to as mobile USB sticks and USB modems”. (USwitch, 2012)Some disadvantages to mobile broadband are that your internet speed is dependent on your phone signal which may vary at different times. Also with mobile broadband there is a limit on your download allowance. This type of Broadband is suited to people who regularly travel but for a business looking for a fast and reliable internet connection, other means of broadband would be better suited.

  • 1. Best Price2. Fast Download Speeds: Well suited when company needs to download files.3. Fast upload speeds: Important for the business when uploading files/Graphics/videos to internet.4. Unlimited internet usage: Needed in day to day running of business.5. 100 minutes free calls: important as the business will need to make phone calls during peak times. 6.

This allows the business to upload and download large files (e.g. Videos, Graphics and images) more efficiently. With the other packages the phone deals were on off peak times but with UPC the package allows 100 minutes free calls at any time which in this case will mainly be used during peak office hours.
