With the advent of cloud based content, small business are increasingly requiring faster internet speeds. Solutions such as off-site cloud backups, Cloud drives, and data streaming for employee mobile devices, all put a toll on current internet speeds.
Comcast is currently the fastest affordable internet speed available in Miami, with download speeds of up to 150Mb per second. This speed is typically sufficient for most Small Businesses. However, the service is not available in all areas and the upload speeds reach 20Mb per second at the most.
AT&T is upgrading their network to 1Gb per second in Miami. However, this project is available in very limited areas. In the meantime, AT&T speeds are not even half of the speed of Comcast.
Bottom line, Miami Small Businesses are in need of faster internet speeds and it would be beneficial to the consumer if the Public and Private sector come to an agreement that addresses current demand and promotes deployment of faster internet networks.
