When I started my own business, I knew my home internet provider wasn’t going to be able to cut it. It was fine for when I was browsing on Facebook or sending casual emails, but I wasn’t willing to risk the speed and reliability of my business internet on my home provider. I had multiple databases that I would need access to all the time and I didn’t need to worry about my internet not being able to keep up. At the suggestion of a friend, I did some searching for Chicago T1 and am so happy that I did. I have a very fast internet connection now and I never have to worry about not being able to access the data I need quickly. I know this is not something a lot of people focus on heavily when they’re looking to start their own business, but it was absolutely a no-brainer for me. I don’t even have to give it a second thought at this point, which is kind of the whole point. I focus on growing my business, not on my service providers letting me down.
