Although we may live and work way up in the mountains, there’s nothing “backcountry” about the economies here in Steamboat Springs and Craig. Thanks to the presence of glorious hot springs and one of the best ski resorts in the world, people from all over the world make it a point to visit Steamboat Springs during the course of the year. And while our cold weather activities may get top billing, the summer time is a great season to be here as well, meaning that our humble little mountain town is a year-round vacation destination!
With our town and the surrounding areas experiencing such a high level of tourist traffic, it’s no surprise that business is booming.

Negative Impact Of Slow Internet Service
- Customer Frustration – Customers of a brick and mortar business can be a little bit fickle. On one hand, they want to be left alone to browse your store at their own pace. On the other hand, once they’ve made their selections, they want to be able to check out right away. If your payment system or credit card machine is running on a slow Internet connection, you may experience latencies that drive your customers crazy, or force them to take their business elsewhere.
- Stifled Productivity – Perhaps you’re a service based business, with several employees working together in an office. Chances are your employees need computers connected to the Internet in order to keep track of appointments, create marketing materials, or merely to get their work done. If your Internet is exceedingly slow or quick to go out when we have inclement weather, your employees will grumble about it behind your back and you may have trouble holding on to top talent.
- Plummeting Bottom Lines – “Beyond the cost of your employees not being able to do their work in an efficient manner, slow Internet causes pain and lost profits,” explains John White on LinkedIn. “For example, a delay in the responsiveness of your company’s CRM system negatively impacts your customer’s experience. If your competitors have a faster more efficient network they are able to respond quicker to customer inquiries and ultimately sell more widgets.”
If you’re running an ecommerce website, in which people interact with your brand and purchase your products or service directly via the Internet, the revenue consequences could be even worse.
