Business in the Cloud: Will Your Internet Connectivity Provide a Positive ROI?
With the rapid and continuing growth of networks and network-based applications, the Internet has become the most important delivery platform for digital media.

A Return on Investment (ROI) calculation is one measure that decision makers can use to model the impact of connectivity performance on their business.
