You may have seen that most ISPs offer both home (residential) internet and business internet. Business internet is typically much more expensive for the speed you get, but why is that? What do you really get for the price, and why are those features good for a business? There are actually a lot of differences with business internet compared to residential internet, especially when it comes to guaranteed speeds, and accountability for the internet service provider.

  1. what if an ISP ignores a formal complaint?

  2. Talking to the cable guys in my area they said there is no way I would actually get a gigabit internet if I moved to a business plan and it was no different speed Wise. This makes me wonder what Comcast would say if I purchased it and complained.

  3. Very good comparison video. Very well done.

  4. Thank you. I always wanted to know.

  5. My residential plan is 300 down 100 up for $40 a month and I can choose from either 8 dynamic ips or 7 dynamic ips + 1 static ip and I never had it go out once I got a fiber line. And my isp tests if the internet is good enough when they install it (test to see if it is above 90% of the advertised speed) Even at peak hours I get the full 300/100mbps and there is no datacap. My isp also has pretty good service.

  6. Symmetrical speeds depend on the media the isp uses a lot of times. With fiber you’re going to get the 100/100 or whatever.

  7. I have a business plan at my house

  8. You guys are so lucky, I've never used the internet. I have my memes mailed to me and put straight dinosaur fossils in my gas tank

  9. Also with a Dynamic IP i can get unbanned on discord

  10. Lol you kinda made me mad at my service provider comparing them two

  11. Keep in mind that both connections, once they exit the ISP, are entirely 100% the same. And if the internet is out because a storm flooded/knocked something over, your internet is still down either way. And when was the last time you needed onsite support for your business' modem, or the last feet from the pole to the router? Note that installations of business plans generally take about the same time (unless your isp/telco is backed up dramatically).

    Basically you pay a ton more for the ability to cover your directorship responsibilities. Which is fine, but don't think you're getting much of anything for your money.

  12. For me I have static ip + 50mbps up and down in my residential plan.
    50mbps is kinda top notch here in India.

  13. Yes, triple the price, a quarter the speed. I had Comcast business and the reliability was the same as residential. Exactly the same. If friends were down, I was down. Every time. The only other difference I saw was port 25 was not blocked (I read mail servers) and I had a block of IP addresses. There was no speed guarantee.

  14. Another probably minor, but still relevant difference are open ports: on residential plans you'll probably have port 80 and 443 (and others) blocked. That makes website hosting a little bit difficult… sure you can still host on other ports (i actually have one site hosted on port 9005) but that means your site won't be available to everyone on everyplace specially ones connected to public/businesses wifi (which typically blocks traffic from unusual ports)

  15. I have those same Logitech speakers. $40 on Amazon. CheapoJoe xD

  16. With a residential plan you not even always get a dynamic ip. You could also get a private ip. So you are behind a double NAT

  17. Business plan, more expensive, better service.

    Just what alternate universe you are talking about?

  18. Hell yeah, my company has 85ish/85ish gotta love being an IT tech.

  19. What if I steal my neighbor's business-grade internet? Do I still get an SLA?

  20. I'm lucky then… my upload and download speeds are 950mbps up and down on average, with slight variations based on time of day.

  21. This is a good video of a general idea of what the difference is between the two services. Yeah there is somethings that are left out but for your average consumer this video tells the basics.

    The customer service part of it is worth every penny when it comes to a business connection.

  22. wtf is usa doing, in most countries broadband(dsl,fiber,cable) don't even have caps, at least in europe, also the isp has to give you minimum 80% of what you pay during peak hours, what i see is that the fcc is not even trying to enforce competition in the states.
