The internet is an increasingly important part of the business world and having to cope with slow and unreliable connections can severely hinder a company's performance.
It appears this is the case in Worcestershire, where local firms have lodged a large number of complaints about the issue with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
FSB chairman for the region Ken Wigfield told Worcester News: "Over the last few years it’s fair to say we've been bombarded with complaints over this."
He cited a local businessman who was forced to drive to a friend's house each day just to use a reliable internet connection as an example of the problems poor broadband can cause.
Mr Wigfield added that the benefits reported by those firms who do have access to super-fast services makes the problem even more apparent.
"We've already had businesses leave or refuse to join Worcestershire due to a lack of super-fast broadband speeds," he told the newspaper.
If your business is suffering with a poor connection, you could benefit from switching to Avonline.
