How to stay online during load-shedding

Unexpected Internet outages happen far too often in South Africa due to load shedding.

When this happens, many people are surprised at just how much they rely on the Internet every day.

However, if your business depends on being online, then it’s recommended that you invest in a reliable secondary Internet connection this year.

For instance, if your primary Internet service is ADSL or fibre, you might consider implementing a mobile data solution as a backup.

The cost of a backup internet service can vary based on a business’s budget and bandwidth needs.

In many cases, the secondary connection, since it is a backup, doesn’t need to be as expensive as the primary one.

The best low-cost solution for emergency situations

One low-cost solution that is perfect for emergency situations is LTE failover.

While a full backup Internet connection is the most sure-fire way to avoid a loss of productivity due to Internet outage, the cost can be prohibitive for some businesses – especially smaller ones.

For these businesses, LTE failover is a great option for a lifeline connection in the event of an Internet outage.

This solution involves using an LTE data service and a rechargeable MiFi router as a backup Internet connection in the event of a service interruption.

Axxess offers a Fixed LTE Data SIM and a portable MiFi router which will keep you connected during load shedding or when your primary Internet connection is down.

What’s more is that it will only set you back R99 per month for 10GB + 10GB. Click here to view more data packages.
