Why Every Business Needs a Back-Up Internet Connection

No matter the industry, a fast and reliable Internet connection is vital to the daily operations of virtually every business. Inventory control, payroll, timecards, point-of-sale systems, VOIP, CRMs and security cameras all typically require an Internet connection. If your business’ Internet connection goes down, operations could be halted to a standstill, resulting in revenue loss.


Even if you have a fiber Internet connection, your business is not immune to these kinds of Internet outages. There are a variety of reasons why a fiber or cable Internet connection could fail. Here are just a few examples:

Power outages – With a typical wireline Internet connection, if there was a power failure in your area, your Internet would immediately go down.

Natural disasters – In the event of a natural disaster, like a wildfire, earthquake or storm, fiber lines can be damaged or can trigger a power outage, causing your Internet connection to fail.

Technical errors – DDoS attacks, network congestion, equipment failure or even a technical human error can create an Internet outage.

Construction – Construction crews in your area can accidentally cut or damage a fiber cable when digging, which typically causes loss of Internet connection.

In many of these instances, your Internet could be down for hours, sometimes days, depending on the circumstance. Most businesses cannot afford for their Internet to go down. Do you have a back-up plan for when that happens? We do!


unWired can provide a back-up Internet service for your business, delivering a 24/7 redundant wireless Internet connection from one of our local towers. These towers are fed by fiber from a diverse array of carriers, giving you a wireless bridge to fiber, even if your primary connection goes down. Our dedicated wireless signal avoids shared conduit paths used by landline services, such as fiber and cable.

Every unWired back-up Internet connection includes unlimited data, professional installation and guaranteed speeds, with the option to upgrade on demand, in the event of an extended outage. Our Central CA-based team can work with you to create a custom plan to fit the unique needs of your business.
