Tech ages faster than Fido – predictions for 2023

The traffic explosion of the pandemic taught us that the Internet is vital to enable human connection and safety in times of crisis. We must heed these lessons to ensure the networks of the future are ready for the next crisis, whether it’s an inflationary economy, power costs increasing even more, worsening supply chain issues or something else entirely.

However, becoming an independent provider takes more than just changing business cards; it requires an understanding of core values.

Organizations are becoming more aware and clearer in defining their needs when building a core network, focusing predominantly on areas like optimal bandwidth, critical connectivity moments, level of security needed, […]
