Corbitt: Hey everyone, it’s Corbitt and Hadley with Anderson Technologies coming at you with another edition of Byte-Size Tech. This is episode three of our three-part series on the internet. I gotta say, it’s a fast one today, so don’t blink or you might miss it.

Hadley: With that, let’s get started. A lot of our clients are growing businesses. We love that for them, because it means they’re hiring more employees, they’re having a greater impact in their community, and they’re helping people. However, we always want to make sure that amidst that growth, they’re upgrading their internet to support it.

Corbitt: Exactly. An example of this would be if there was a company that had 35 employees, and they had an internet connection installed to support those 35 employees. But now, they’re doing great and they’ve got 80 employees. They’ve over doubled in size! We’re super happy for them, but if they’re still using that same internet connection, that means there’s double the amount of laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, you name it, that are all tapping into that same internet connection. So essentially, you have the same size pie, just more people wanting a slice.

Hadley: And no one wants to sacrifice their slice!

Corbitt: Especially not at Thanksgiving.

Hadley: Corbitt wasn’t joking, that’s all we have for you. Hopefully you didn’t blink and miss it.

Corbitt: Thank you so much for tuning in for this three-part series. We’re gonna have plenty more videos coming your way. Be sure to tune in when you see them!
