Free double bandwidth for BIT clients

Large amount of home workers puts extra pressure on network

BIT is providing its clients with free double bandwidth. We are proactively taking this measure due to the large number of people that have to work from home due to COVID-19. Because many people are working from home now, the internet connections are put under greater pressure and organisations are coming across bandwidth limitations. A doubling of bandwidth ensures that IT applications hosted from BIT’s data centers, like CRM systems and remote workplaces, will stay available for our clients.

Wido Potters, Manager Sales & Support at BIT: “Where technically possible, we are doubling the bandwidth for our clients, at least until May 1st 2020. With this measure, we ensure that our clients can work remotely on a large scale. This way, we want to contribute to preventing or at least limiting the social consequences of COVID-19.”

One of our clients, the municipality of Tiel, is already benefitting from this measure. Sibrand van Minnen, Network System Administrator at the municipality: “Following the COVID-19 outbreak, we investigated whether our network can support the large numbers of home workers. We soon found that the bandwidth would be one of the bottlenecks. That is why we contacted BIT to inquire about the possibilities. BIT said they could double the bandwidth and would list the costs for us. After a few minutes, I was called back with the message that BIT would do this free of charge. This is why we are so content with BIT as a partner: most challenges can be solved with a single phone call.”
