Its no secret that the demands of bandwidth-heavy Web applications, such as video and remote access, have placed a burden on medium-sized businesses, greatly outpacing current T1 speeds and taxing overall system reliability, said Scott Charter, cofounder and managing partner of WBS Connect and WBS Direct. WBS Direct erases these concerns by offering the ultimate in intra-office and dedicated Internet access, plus product flexibility and the best business guarantees in the industry all this without the lagging service and strict contracts associated with traditional Internet providers.
