What to Look for When Choosing an ISP, Part 2

There are many things to look for when choosing an internet service provider (ISP), starting with internet speed and customer support. In addition to these critical offerings, make sure that any ISP you are considering for your household or business provides the following.

Rural Connectivity

Despite technological advancements in recent years, too many rural communities still experience internet connectivity challenges. If you live in a rural or remote area that lacks the necessary fiber optic, DSI or cable infrastructure needed for high speed internet, you face a bigger challenge than others who may be choosing an ISP. The right ISP for rural locations will offer fixed wireless internet that uses radio signals, as opposed to cables. This ensures faster, more consistent connection no matter where you live.

“These guys were the best internet experience I have ever had. I have better internet with VGI than I have had with any other providers…I will recommend them to anyone in my area.” – Sarah McClung, Home Internet Customer

Speed-Based Plans

With large internet providers, the most common service plans are based on data usage. This often leads to residential customers paying more if they exceed their data caps — which, if they work from home or have large households, can easily happen. As for small businesses, they are likely to exceed their data caps as well, which means budgeting more for internet service. It’s unfortunate when business owners are forced to raise their overhead just so employees can do their jobs.

A much better option for consumers is an internet plan pricing structure based on connection speed. With a speed-based plan, there are no data restrictions forcing customers to impose limitations on internet usage. This is a major advantage for homes and businesses where usage is high, and VGI Technology offers that advantage.

With us, there are no overage charges — because there are no overages, period. Your data is unlimited, and always will be.
