The Internet has made many tasks easier, and the latest global developments more easily accessible.

In this online-everything environment, your employees are constantly connected to the Internet, performing an assortment of personal and business tasks from their laptops, desktops and mobile devices.

This means demands for bandwidth are constantly rising, which could become a problem if there’s not enough supply to support your business-critical applications.

Extra from Internet Solutions provides an extra pipe of dedicated bandwidth for online activities like banking or video streaming that aren’t essential to your day-to-day operations.

Keep employees productive and happy

Accommodate your employees’ need to use the Internet

No need to "police" your staff with Internet Extra

Online activities that aren’t directly related to work can consume as much as 40% – 60% of bandwidth.

Placing pressure on your network, potentially affect the speed and performance of important business applications.

By using this service, you show that you understand and are willing to accommodate your employees’ need to use the Internet for activities that aren’t directly related to work, even if it’s just for a limited time each day. You also take some pressure off your IT team, as they don’t have to “police” staff for using too much bandwidth for tasks that aren’t deemed critical to their work or to the business.

Give your employees the freedom to perform personal tasks

Simply banning all non-essential traffic isn’t the answer – you recognise that your employees need to perform some personal tasks during working hours. They may go online to do their banking and shopping, stay up to date with the news, or check in on social media. Or they may want access to the latest research, learning tools and training videos from across the globe – content that’s work-related but not necessarily mission-critical.

An extra bandwidth pipe for non-critical traffic

Separate traffic that doesn't run your business from traffic that does

Automatically divert traffic to ensure performance and productivity

With Extra, you’re able to separate traffic that’s not directly related to running your business from traffic that is. The non-essential traffic is diverted to its own bandwidth pipe.

In this way, the critical Internet connectivity needed to keep your customers happy and your business running is never compromised. And neither is the happiness of your employees, as the decision of where to divert traffic is made at the firewall, they will enjoy the same online access and user experience.

As much as you need, as fast as you want

Extra is available in capped and uncapped packages wherever Internet Solutions has laid fibre. Your bandwidth can be as fast as you want, from 2 Mbps to 200 Mbps, and you can choose as much as you need, from 50 GB to 500 GB.

Keep critical applications performing at their best

Allow for more effective bandwidth management

Promote a work environment free of restrictions

Extra helps to promote a work environment that’s not restrictive, promoting productivity by enabling online access to different sites and types of content, without hampering the bandwidth required for business-critical traffic.

Ensuring that certain online applications or activities aren’t slowing bandwidth and impeding the performance of important business services, allows for more effective bandwidth management for business-critical applications.

Extra is managed by us but controlled by you – you define what’s critical and needs to take priority, and what can be diverted to the separate bandwidth pipe, and we take care of the rest. We also provide 24/7 support.
