What is AT&T High Speed Internet for Business?

High-speed Internet for Business is a cost-effective solution for providing very fast internet access to your business address using multiple broadband access technologies. Like most Internet services, AT&T High Speed Internet for Business uses a shared connection that spreads network costs over customers in a local area, reducing costs for each customer. Starting at $40 per month, AT&T High Speed Internet for Business has plans for every size of business – small to large. With speeds up to 10 Gbps, employees effectively share large data files, video conference with customers, suppliers, and partners with high reliability.

What is AT&T Dedicated Internet?

Dedicated internet service is like a private traffic laneDedicated internet service is like a private traffic lane
AT&T Dedicated Internet service provides a non-shared access line to the internet for your business. Rather than sharing a connection to the internet, organizations are able to connect directly to AT&T network via a private line. This dedicated connection may be more expensive, but it guarantees a consistent symmetric upload speed and download speed at all times of day, which is essential for many businesses.

A dedicated internet access (DIA) line provides guaranteed speeds at the rate the business purchases, no matter the time of day. And, connection speeds are symmetric—meaning that download and upload speeds are the same. Symmetric speeds are crucial for applications that send and receive large volumes of data such as high definition video conferencing, multiple broadcasts, or conferences running simultaneously, file hosting and uploads, and sending large data sets between business locations. AT&T Dedicated Internet provides the highest advertised speed and guaranteed uptime, making it a good choice for medium and large businesses who rely on the internet to conduct business.

What is the difference between AT&T High Speed Internet and AT&T Dedicated Internet?

Purchasing a business private line to the internet through AT&T Dedicated Internet provides the highest advertised speed and uptime.

A shared connection through AT&T High Speed Internet for Business provides performance up to the advertised speed because traffic loads are dependent on moment-to-moment network usage factors across all users on the connection locally. AT&T Dedicated Internet is backed up by service level agreements (SLAs) that protect speed levels and uptime—both of which are superior to those offered on shared business or consumer plans. AT&T Dedicated Internet also comes with 24-hour support and service monitoring, resolving some technical issues even before users are aware there is a problem. If something does go wrong, customers have access to technical support to quickly resolve the issue.

What are some other benefits of AT&T Dedicated Internet?

Dedicated internet service is idea for businesses with large data setsDedicated internet service is idea for businesses with large data sets
Dedicated internet service is ideal for businesses with large data sets. Dedicated Internet is more secure than shared connections because data is traveling on its own network. This allows the private transfer of information between multiple business offices, off-site backup locations, and cloud applications, helping to protect your organization from advanced cyberattacks.

Dedicated Internet also has the option to maintain static IPs—a requirement for organizations that need to host infrastructure on-site—such as web, app, file or email servers. You can also prioritize mission-critical data (inter-office file transfers, for example) over other, less-critical traffic (such as web browsing). Mission-critical systems are not as impacted by increased traffic loads from other applications. A dedicated internet connection will also leave companies’ IT teams free to focus on projects that support the business—rather than day-to-day network management.

Most importantly, speeds of up to 10 Gbps provide fast, uninterrupted web browsing, highly reliable file and data transfers, virtually seamless backups, crystal-clear voice and video connections, and connectivity to mission-critical web apps and SaaS platforms. Any organization that relies on the transfer of large files or data sets or has a high dependency on web apps and Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms should consider the performance and uptime provided by AT&T Dedicated Internet.

The bottom line

  • AT&T High Speed Internet for Business delivers fast internet access while providing economy of scale through a shared connection.
  • AT&T Dedicated Internet is faster with symmetric speeds up to 10 Gbps--giving organizations their own private lane connected directly to the internet.
  • Businesses with robust data transfer needs or organizations with a high reliance on the internet connectivity for conferencing, file hosting, and SaaS platforms should consider upgrading to AT&T Dedicated Internet.
