Understanding Direct Internet Access and the Benefits It Brings to Your Business


Anyone who has ever experienced a neighbor hitting their power lines or a community internet outage caused by a natural disaster will understand the benefit of controlling your own utility access. It’s frustrating to feel like you’re at the mercy of circumstances beyond your control that can limit your access to these critical resources.

That’s why so many businesses have switched to direct internet access. This service is available to companies of all sizes and industries that can help them ensure ongoing productivity and collaboration, no matter what happens outside (or inside) their doors. This control over your own resources comes with other benefits as well, like dedicated support and service on your terms.  

Interested in exploring the benefits that direct internet access could bring to your business? Keep reading to learn more about our services and how we can bring this valuable resource to your organization.

What is Direct Internet Access?

Understanding direct internet access is critical to figuring out how to utilize this resource for your business.

AOP offers direct internet access as part of our enterprise fiber internet service. Instead of sharing a fiber internet line with neighbors or other customers in your area, we’ll install a lightning-fast dedicated fiber line that’s for your business alone.

The fiber lines are 100% underground, so they’re much more secure and protected from external factors such as weather, vandalism, or accidental damage.

Additionally, with direct internet access, you’ll experience faster and more reliable internet speeds since there’s no shared connection to contend with. This means that your business can operate at optimal efficiency, with minimal downtime and maximum productivity.

The Benefits of Direct Internet Access for Your Business Solutions

Switching to direct internet access can offer your business many benefits beyond increased reliability, productivity, and efficiency.

Here are some additional advantages your business will experience when you make the switch.

24/7 support

Our direct internet access experts provide 24/7 support, so you can always reach someone in case of an emergency. This helps to minimize disruptions that can derail productivity.

Enhanced cybersecurity

With direct internet access, you have better control over your network security. When you’re no longer sharing a connection with other businesses, you can opt for in-built security features that match your cybersecurity needs, keeping your connection safer and lowering the risk of attacks or data breaches.

Less downtime

Not only do our enhanced cybersecurity capabilities help to prevent downtime, but the physical setup of your fiber line contributes to this as well. All our fiber lines are buried underground, keeping them safe from outages related to natural disasters, heavy rain, or even human error.


Direct internet access allows you to tailor your network to your specific needs. You can prioritize certain applications or devices and allocate bandwidth as necessary. 


As your business grows, you can easily increase your internet capacity with direct internet access. This means you won’t have to worry about outgrowing your connection or experiencing lag and slow speeds during peak hours.

We offer three separate plans as part of our enterprise fiber service and can immediately upgrade or alter your plan as the needs of your business change. This means you won’t be stuck paying for services you aren’t using, or struggling to keep up with increased bandwidth demand if you experience rapid growth.

Improved user experience

Direct internet access offers faster and more reliable speeds, which means your employees can work more efficiently, and customers can enjoy a better browsing experience on your website.
