MONTRÉAL, Feb. 9, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Videotron Business Solutions today introduced Guaranteed Internet, a tested solution that guarantees business continuity. Today, a stable Internet connection is vital for any business. For retailers that rely on digital payments, it is mission-critical. Videotron Business Solutions can now guarantee no downtime by twinning the performance and reliability of its Fibre Hybrid and LTE networks.
With Guaranteed Internet, if the wired Internet link goes down, the wireless LTE network automatically kicks in and seamlessly maintains a continuous connection. Videotron Business Solutions proactively monitors the connection and switches it back to the wired network as soon as it becomes available again. The customer doesn't have to do anything; the connection is switched between networks in the background. So the service lives up to its name: the Internet connection is guaranteed 99.9% of the time.
Guaranteed Internet from Videotron Business Solutions means guaranteed peace of mind. Companies that opt for the solution know they will be able to focus their full attention on their business. "Supporting the performance of our business customers is really our raison d'être," says Frédéric Déry, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Videotron Business Solutions. "Guaranteed Internet gives them a doubly reliable connection and lets them concentrate on their business priorities."
The Guaranteed Internet option will meet the needs of the vast majority of Québec businesses. It is compatible with Fibre Hybrid services of up to 100 Mbps across Videotron's service area.
