In a recent TechFlashQ&A, Comcast Business Services President Bill Stemper touted the company's 100 mbps high-speed Internet service calling it “second to none.” In a press release, Comcast claims the service offers businesses “one of the fastest Internet speeds in the U.S.” These show-stopping assertions have garnered good press for the company.
My question is: Does the service come with an SLA?
SLA means Service Level Agreement. You get a SLA if you buy Dedicated Internet Access (DIA). Otherwise, the service provider gives you what is called a "best effort" agreement. No guarantees.
Specifically, here's what a SLA gives business customers:
- Guaranteed uptime
- Guaranteed speed
- Guaranteed trouble resolution
I am going to find out if Comcast Business's 100 Mbps high-speed Internet service comes with a SLA in the coming days. I will let you know when I do.
