  • Important things to consider

    Access to reliable internet services has brought about major changes in how businesses of all sizes can operate. From part-time sole trader enterprises supplementing the farm income, through to major enterprises such as mine sites and broadscale agriculture, there’s a range of services providing support and information to improve your everyday activities.

    1. Where your business operates
      Do you have remote activities that require phone and internet service? Do you need to network devices within and outside of your office? Do you know what technologies you can access?
    2. The scale of your business
    3. Additional requirements
      Do you have backup technology for emergency situations such as power blackouts? If your EFTPOS machine only runs on mobile broadband for example, and the connection becomes congested when there is a large event in town, how do you accept payments?
    4. The security of your operations. Telstra has some useful resources for small business cyber security here.
