To say that the last few years have been a challenge is an understatement.
Just when we’d regained some normality from COVID, the growing impacts of climate change are being keenly felt with Cyclone Gabrielle another sharp reminder. So, how can you improve your resilience in the face on ongoing adversity?
Robust networks are now a top priority and connectivity is a core requirement for success. Here at Quest, we’ve seen increases in client investments into websites, e-commerce, and CRM systems, but they’ll only work if connections are available to support them.
How Starlink can help your digital resilience
Starlink grew in prominence in 2022 with help for Ukraine and owner Elon Musk has now deployed nearly 4,000 low orbit satellites providing internet around the world. Closer to home, Starlink is being actively deployed by New Zealand emergency services for communities impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle and other crisis events and its providing much needed connectivity for those in need.
So how does Starlink compare to other internet providers?
If you’re on fibre, this likely remains your best option as the monthly cost is cheaper, and speeds are faster. But if digital resilience and connectivity is a non-negotiable for you or your business, then Starlink may be a useful backup. Benefits include no data caps, no fixed-contract commitments, and you can even take the kit on the road for connectivity anywhere you choose.
