Why Use Sound Internet?

Redundant Links to the Internet

In technical jargon it's called 'Multi-Homing'. This gives us extra protection against outages. Should one of our links to the Internet suffer an unexpected failure we have backup facilities in place to automatically take over. What it means to you is more reliable access to the Internet. Most Internet providers try to cut corners by using only a single link, putting all their eggs in one basket.

Ample Capacity

What good is that high speed connection if your service is only going to be choked at your Internet Provider? Our average bandwidth utilization is below 10% which means that you can experience the full benefit of the latest high speed technology.

Everyday Support

Should you ever run into problems you can be assured top-notch support. Our telephone lines are answered 7 days a week. No need to wade through endless mazes in some voice-mail system, wouldn't you rather be greeted promptly by a human voice?

Generator and Un-Interruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

If the power goes out, your Internet service doesn't need to. High availability is one of the many things that sets us apart.
