Depending on your level of service, you may want to increase the speed if you can (this will depend on how far your location is from the central office providing you with DSL). See if you can get broadband service from the cable company. More cable companies are beginning to provide this type of service to companies. You may be able to get better Internet performance for the same money or just a little bit more than you are currently paying.
