As you get ready to face the new year with new resolutions, Galactic Hosting has come up with a list of simple and attainable internet resolutions that you can live by.

If you have fibre in your area and have the power of super-fast internet at your fingertips, then consider these top resolutions to get the most out of your fibre internet service in the new year. You will save money, time, expand your knowledge and learn new things, and find that essential downtime to just relax and shoot the breeze…

Top Galactic Hosting resolutions for 2020:

  • Save money on your data and connectivity costs – with the power of superfast, uncapped and reliable fibre connectivity rolling out in homes across the country, accessing these services now comes at a fraction of the eye-watering costs of mobile data, LTE-A  and other wireless broadband connections.  Having a reliable, fast and uncapped fibre internet connection means you can now get serious about containing expensive data packages and get a lot more mileage for your money with your ‘connected’ home.
  • Wifi-calling, Facetime and Video-calling:  You can make video or audio calls over your fibre wi-fi connection via Whatsapp, Skype, Facetime (Apple devices) so you’ll save on telephony and mobile network costs and never have to worry about your data running out while you’re face-timing your bestie in New York or Holland.  Set your mobile phone up to automatically switch to your wi-fi network at home and save by keeping your (more expensive) mobile data for when you’re not within the wi-fi range.
  • Video and audio on Demand – With fibre internet, you will be spoilt for choice with entertainment, news and sports channels.  You can subscribe to multiple streaming services for music, video and entertainment at an absolute fraction of the subscription cost of a typical satellite pay-TV subscription – think NetflixShowtimeShowmax and Classic Cinema Online to YouTubeAmazon Prime Video and so much more.  Watch what you want, listen to what you want, when you want.  You can also download content to watch later, so if you’re travelling or you have a power failure but you have a UPS, you can still watch on a laptop, tablet or TV.  And as a last tantaliser, your fibre line is impervious to weather, so no annoying satellite TV interruptions in a downpour or waiting weeks for technicians to come and repair your ADSL line.
  • Online Shopping – Beat the queues and wasted time spent doing price comparisons – shop online, save time and avoid that ever tempting impulse buys that store retailer place in your path.  Many grocery retailers allow you to draw up a handy online shopping list which you can revisit with every shop, and simply add to or deduct from for those regular monthly groceries – so you save time, money, petrol and only purchase what you really need.  And who wouldn’t love the convenience of having it all delivered at your doorstep?
  • Safety and Security – Keeping our loved ones and homes safe is a top priority.  With an uncapped fibre line, you can connect safety and security devices such as your alarm system and CCTV cameras to the web, allowing you to remotely log in and access these devices – you can check in on your cameras and see what’s is going on at home or the office.  You can even arm and disarm your alarm remotely.  If your vehicle tracking provider offers a portal login, you can use your internet connection to log in and check where your loved ones are travelling and that they are safe.
  • Learn something new – one of the most exciting developments that has come about with reliable fibre internet connectivity is online learning.  And before you clock out thinking this is only for the academically-inclined, check out the likes of Udemy for a mind-blowing array of mind-stretching and very affordable educational experiences – from learning to play a new musical instrument, photography and design courses, to cooking and baking up a storm of the latest foodie trends, to fitness and health, meditation, travel, DIY, gaming, through to specific industry trades, academics and teaching content.  The internet is the most extensive library of learning materials, and it’s all available to you courtesy of a high-speed, reliable internet connection. As they say in the classics – a mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.
  • Music Streaming – Music streaming is the ultimate spoil when it comes to some well-deserved chill and relax time to your favourite tunes, or if you’re so inclined, some hectic cardio-pumping hits to get you and your gym workout lit.   Think SpotifyJooxiTunesYoutube Music and Google Play Music – no one still forks out for archaic CDs and DVDs that take up space, scratch and deteriorate over time.
  • Get e-mail – Sign up for an e-mail account and stay in touch.  There’s very little you can do today without an email address and internet connection – free e-mail services like Google’s Gmail are perfect if you don’t have access to subscription-based services such as Microsoft Office and Outlook.  With symmetrical upload and download speeds – which basically means your line uploads files as quickly as it downloads them, those e-mail attachments will fly through for speedy communication.
  • Cloud-based storage and back-up – Make it your new year resolution to get serious about backing up your important data – providers like Google, who will offer up to a certain limit, free storage.  The best part of being in the cloud is having access to your data and documents from any device, anywhere in the world, with a simple log in.  Say goodbye to that filing cabinet and the days of your external hard drive crashing and you losing all your precious family photos and important documents.

Make it your 2020 new year resolution to get the most out of your fibre internet connection.  Most people are surprised at just how much they rely on the internet for their everyday lives, and just how much they can save not only on hard costs but on time, effort and sanity with a reliable, fibre internet connection.
