Businesses from St Louis County are speaking after the broadband meeting in St Louis County yesterday. A theme emerge as they all say – we need better broadband. After the meeting I heard from Jon Benz at JM Retrievers. They board, train and breed retrievers. Here’s what Jon had to say about local broadband…
I need better internet period! Cost effective and would help my business a lot. From credit card processing to website design, which I do myself, videos and photo uploads to help me sell products and services. I have to wait sometimes hours to download files that people send me. And hours to upload sale videos etc.
Broadband is a must for us to survive for many aspects of our business. I get more online contacts for bookings numerous days than by phone. I barely have Internet through access broadband line of sight service.
I like the provider as a company but they don’t have the speeds that I need to make my business more efficient in many ways. The first few years I didn’t have them it was a struggle. It can only get better.
