The argument as to whether the internet should be treated as a utility underscores how integral the internet has become for governments, businesses, consumers, students, educators… the list is endless. This means that, as internet providers, your service simply can’t go down. Ever.
Unfortunately, however, despite the investments you’ve made in security, reliable speeds, backups and contingencies, there is always a chance of service interruptions and cyber attacks that leave your internet providers open to substantial liability from several sources. Our internet service provider insurance plans are assembled by commercial insurance specialists and are designed specifically to help you mitigate those risks.
Just as the internet has changed the way we live and do business, it’s also changed the way internet service itself is provided. If you use or own a colocation service, our internet service provider insurance plans will give your business the protection it needs.
