The MTU Competitive Advantage: Fiber
Small and mid-sized businesses increasingly rely on the Internet for cloud-based processing as well as for file transfer and communications. They need not only bandwidth – especially on the upstream side – but also reliable, future-proof and flexible access. A business trying to take advantage of new opportunities can’t afford to let communications capacity become a bottleneck. That’s why the availability of superior broadband is now a key factor in business leasing decisions and rent levels. Owners of multitenant commercial buildings can learn in this session how to meet the broadband needs of current and prospective tenants.
