We can’t predict the future, but the odds of the US enterprise workforce heading back to the office en masse before the end of the summer (if not 2020) are looking slim.

With internet connectivity playing such a pivotal role in business, enterprises can’t afford to accept less-than-stellar performance from the ISPs they partner with. Doing so would set the whole business up for failure – and could paint enterprise IT in a bad light when they might not be at fault for poor performance, despite what the users they support might...

The basic principle of net neutrality, which prohibited internet service providers from throttling speeds or intentionally blocking content, applications or websites, is no longer our reality. Now we’re left to wonder, as bandwidth-hungry applications and connected devices exponentially increase global IP traffic, set to reach 3.3 ZB per year by 2021, what will ISPs do with their free reign of...
