Don't trust your ISP


A while ago, I successfully convinced my friend, John, over Georgia to get a multi-wan router. As always, I recommended him with my brand of choice, PePLink. His business internet is doing great for him after the installation. His business is very dependent on the internet. In additional to the usual stuff like emails and voip, he also uses a lot of SaaS (Software as a Service) like Salesforce, Google Docs, etc…

A few days ago, the disaster strike over the Georgia area. The Speedfactory ISP shuts down without notice. I give John a call, and he is very happy about my recommendation. He is able to continue business without affect by the internet downtime. While I know ISP going out of business is not usual, but this gives you an idea why a dual-wan or multi-wan router is necessary. Now he is joining me and recommends these multi-wan routers to his friends.
