A slow network is frustrating to deal with and can affect your business negatively in every aspect, including employee productivity and customer service. 

Some of the most common causes of a slow network include:

Lack of monitoring

Many businesses will not look into a problem unless they absolutely have to and by then it can be too late. This applies to IT and network products as well and because technology is always changing and advancing at a rapid pace, the network you’ve chosen must be able to accommodate these changes and keep up with your demands. Your old software may work fine but the chances are it’s slowing you down and you shouldn’t wait until it’s no longer compatible with your needs before you act because that can cost you time and money. Instead, replace your workstations and laptops every few years so that your hardware is up-to-date.

Improper switch design

Modern switches are what connect the different devices across a computer network and if they are installed correctly, they will be very helpful to your business which you’ll be able to run efficiently. Improperly designed switches will result in slow data flow and impact the speed of your network. Something as simple as an additional cable drop can help solve this problem and speed things up as can stacking the connectors so these cost-effective options are definitely something to consider.

Slow hard drives

Your hard drive is essentially your computer which is where all of your data, website browsers, operating system and preferences are saved and accessed. A slow hard drive makes it extremely difficult to access any of the information you require, which is a very big problem related to your network speed. Hard disc drives have more storage than other options, although you may have to deal with technical problems and they do take more energy and operate more slowly, so keep this in mind. An alternative option would be solid-state drives which are faster, lighter and more energy-efficient than hard disc drives although they are also more expensive so you’ll have to decide which option is best for you. If you’re experiencing slow network speeds, it may be worth the investment. 

Unreliable internet

If you own a business, you are well aware that even a few minutes without the internet can affect your business significantly and cost you quite a bit. For this reason, you need an internet connection that you can rely on and choosing the right provider is incredibly important to the success of your company.
