Home/ISP-Service-Areas/Texas/Houston Metro Area

We are a Central Texas based managed IT services firm & IT consulting company. Our managed services team works out of our headquarters in Austin, Texas. Many Texas businesses work with us to get a better business internet rate or to broker a recurring business fiber contract with ISPs like Spectrum, AT&T, Lumen and others.

There is no charge to use our ISP Broker and Business Fiber Broker Service

We're happy to quote business internet & business fiber prices in your area. All we need is your business name, address/suite number and if you're on an existing contract with another ISP. It takes about 2-3 business days to find out what's going on with rates from the ISPs providing business fiber and business internet plans in your service area. We also will let you know about any specials or promotions that you can take advantage of.

Connectivity as a Managed IT Service

Dealing with the details regarding business fiber and business internet for our clients is a natural part of our managed IT services business. We calculate your minimum required connectivity speeds based on your IT infrastructure and employee base, and negotiate with the available ISPs for the best match in speed vs. monthly price. You'll find that most business internet plans are going to be a simple month-to-month commitment with the contracted business ISP, and that business fiber plans will require one-, two- or three-year contract terms at your physical location. If you need help upgrading an existing contract, or terminating a contract early to start a new one, we can sometimes help depending on the ISP and your geographic market.

Our role as an ISP Broker means we strictly set up the relationship and contract between the customer and the service provider. All ISP contracts and support accounts are issued in your business's name, fully under your control, with your selected contact listed as a Support Contact on the ISP account. Our Austin managed IT services team can handle all of the details including rolling over your network to the new connection if you do not have internal IT staff, or if you want the process co-managed under supervision by your IT. > Get a Quote for Business Fiber in Houston> More on our Data Center / CoLocation Services in Houston

Upgrade to Business Fiber Internet

The monthly costs of business fiber have dropped as availability of circuits has increased across the USA. Across Texas, businesses will usually be able to find a business fiber ISP that offers a connection in their zip code and neighborhood. Major business fiber ISPs in major and medium-size cities in Texas now offer a variety of plans and speeds on a dedicated or shared business fiber connection. > Get a Quote for Business Fiber in Houston> More on our Data Center / CoLocation Services in Houston

Business Internet Plans

We provide a large number of Texas businesses with traditional business internet plans. These accounts are often used as redundant connections used in conjunction with a business fiber account, or used as dual load-balanced internet connections when business fiber is not available. Our managed IT services team often uses dual, load-balanced business internet connections as a means of providing a smoother level of upload speeds, required when using videoconferencing like Google Meet or Zoom. This type of setup has typically been used by our managed IT services team when a client has to wait for a business fiber circuit installation in their immediate neighborhood or building. The wait can stretch on for months. Using dual inexpensive internet connections via cable (or DSL in some markets) "buys you time" with moderately better use of the upload pipeline for your Meets, phone systems and other systems that require a consistent, strong upload speed.. > Get a Quote for Business Internet Plans in Houston> More on our Data Center / CoLocation Services in Houston

Fiber Internet vs. Cable or DSL

Why upgrade to Fiber Internet?

Data transferred over fiber connections won't degrade as much when traveling long distances as information riding on copper wire connections does. Fiber internet is more effective in transmitting information than DSL or cable Internet connections because of the type of cables used.

The Problem with Copper Wiring

DSL and cable internet use copper wires to transmit information. They are the same wires to send your voice over the phone line. This factoid is an intriguing way to remind yourself of the time we have been using this technology.

The problem of attenuation and distortion in copper wires gets more intense the longer these wires are. So, the farther away you are from the local node and the internet company (ISP), the more degraded the signals received. Attenuation and distortion also get more severe when you increase your internet speed. (That's one of the reasons DSL and cable Internet are only able to speed up to a certain level.)

Fiber Internet Data Transmission

As mentioned, fiber-optic internet lines transfer information by modulating light instead of electricity. They have more bandwidth because they're not bound by the physical limitations of electrical currents flowing across metal. Ultimately, this leads to fewer delays due to internet connectivity and more productive uptime for your business.

Choosing a Fiber Internet Provider in Houston

Conventional advice (or paid advertisement, hard to tell which sometimes) will tell you to choose between a handful of massive tech giants for your business fiber internet. These ISPs (Internet Service Providers) include Verizon, AT&T, CenturyLink, Spectrum, Lumen and others.

Reduce Your Fiber Internet & Business Internet Costs

An easy way to connect your business to fiber internet or upgrade the speeds on your existing business internet is to ask our Austin managed services team for assistance. We are an authorized ISP broker with the ability to offer you better-than-direct pricing -- that means we can usually get you a better rate than you pay by going to AT&T, Spectrum, CenturyLink, etc. directly. Our ISP broker status gives us large enough purchasing power to offer you the best rates, no matter what market you are operating your business in. The only thing you have to do as part of the business is to come to us first before you talk to any of the ISPs directly. This ensures our managed IT services team can position your contract and negotiate with the ISP to get you the best rate for fiber internet or business internet.
