You’re an IT professional in an Irish business and you want to get the best connectivity option for your business needs. Where do you start? What do you need? There are so many questions and so many options. We are often asked about the difference between DIA (Dedicated Internet Access) and Business Broadband. The thing to remember is that there are connectivity options for every type of business, no matter how big or small. At Magnet+, we provide broadband services to over 10,000 business customers in all industries across the country.
What is DIA (Dedicated Internet Access)?
You may have heard of different types of connectivity or internet connection. Take DIA (Dedicated Internet Access) for example. This is a connectivity solution primarily used by corporate / enterprise level businesses. DIA is delivered via fibre in the ground or wireless through the air and offers exclusive and dedicated internet access direct to the communications cabinet in your comms room. This means your connection is 100% yours. In connectivity terms, it’s your own private jet: never shared, fast and completely under your control.

What About Business Broadband?
Business Broadband on the other hand is more suitable for the SME type business. This service provides a service more akin to that which you would be used to in your home. The broadband service is delivered in different ways depending on the delivery method available at your address – Copper, Fibre, SIRO, NBI for example. This level of broadband is perfectly suitable for a small business with limited bandwidth requirements and the Magnet+ Always On service provides a 4G back up giving piece of mind for businesses which rely on broadband to keep their business working.
