Is your business internet slow? SEACOM's Direct Internet Access is the ideal solution

A business cannot function with poor internet. Buffering, disruptions and server overloads can cause costly interruptions to your company. It prevents customers from accessing your website or online store and hinders your employees from performing their jobs at optimal efficiency. Large companies with hundreds of computers and connections need fast and reliable internet.

SEACOM Business offers various internet connectivity solutions to large enterprises in South Africa. One of these offerings is our world-class Direct Internet Access. This service provides companies with high-speed, dedicated, symmetrical internet access. In addition, we can deliver these services at line rates between 10Gbps and 100Gbps on a single interface, using our own network, with no shaping or usage limits.

Our uncapped Direct Internet Access is future-proof and fully scalable. It is backed by our leading service level agreement (SLA), which outlines particular aspects of the connectivity service, including quality, availability and responsibilities. The SLA acts as a guarantee that your company will benefit from SEACOM’s Direct Internet Access.

Three main benefits of our Direct Internet Access

Why should a company switch to SEACOM Business’s Direct Internet Access? Besides being one of the fastest services on the market, we can guarantee a 99% uptime with round-the-clock support for our enterprise customers. The speed at which we can deliver internet access directly from our data centres is the first major reason to consider our Direct Internet Access.

Secondly, our fibre internet network is based on an award-winning symmetrical model that ensures uncontented connections straight to your office. This minimises proxies, tunnels and middleware which all result in a loss of communication speed between connected devices and the data centres. Our symmetrical network gives business customers a direct line to the main fibre optic network that stretches between major cities in South Africa and other African countries.

The third benefit of our Direct Internet Access solutions is that they are uncapped. No data limits mean that your company will never be cut off. Avoid the unnecessary disruptions and process of getting reconnected by opting for uncapped internet access. Furthermore, our internet is unshaped, which means that all services are given equal priority.

With a shaped connection, certain services such as email and internet browsing are given priority over file sharing and video conferencing. Our unshaped internet ensures that all protocols will run efficiently and at the same time. This is beneficial to large corporations that run hundreds or thousands of processes simultaneously over their internet connection.

To get connected to SEACOM’s Direct Internet Access, simply search for your location on our site and browse the options available to you. These solutions are aimed at enterprises and large companies with over 100 employees, which operate in South Africa and the surrounding region.
