Our Direct Internet Access offers unshaped and uncapped connectivity

Fast and reliable internet is an absolute necessity for large companies nowadays. From emailing and video conferencing to e-commerce and social networking, every enterprise needs the internet for its day-to-day functioning. SEACOM Business can deliver super-fast fibre internet to businesses across South Africa, through our uncapped Direct Internet Access packages.

These services equip large companies with high-speed, dedicated and symmetrical fibre internet access at line rates between 10Gbps and 100Gbps on a single interface. This connection runs directly from our data centres to your company premises, via our subsea and terrestrial cables, with no shaping and without any usage limits.

Uncapped and unshaped Direct Internet Access

For the internet to be fast, it needs to be unshaped. For it to be truly useful to a business, it needs to be uncapped. These two factors ensure that SEACOM Business can offer world-class fibre connectivity to our corporate clients. Our Direct Internet Access is future-proof, fully scalable and is backed by our leading service level agreement (SLA).

Uncapped internet holds many advantages to an enterprise. No limits on data means that a business will never be cut off from the internet. The company will run at optimal efficiency with the knowledge that its internet will always be available. This is highly beneficial when it comes to connecting a business to its data centre environments and improving in-house communications.

What is unshaped internet?

In addition, our Direct Internet Access solutions are unshaped, which means that all services using the internet are given equal priority at all times with no rate-limiting. A shaped connection is one in which certain services, such as email and internet browsing, are given priority over other services, such as file sharing and video conferencing.

SEACOM’s unshaped internet ensures that all protocols will run efficiently and at the same time, with no throttling or delays. This is beneficial to large companies that run hundreds or thousands of processes simultaneously over their internet connection. It ensures that all necessary functions that require internet connectivity can be fulfilled at the same time.

Uncapped and unshaped internet access is a vital consideration for South African businesses if they want to improve performance and remain competitive in the fast-paced digital era. Choose SEACOM Business as your preferred internet connectivity partner and benefit from our expertise in dealing with large enterprises.
