Northern Colorado Internet: Why Carrier-Agnostic Matters

When it comes to Northern Colorado internet service, you can work with a service provider that uses a particular data carrier exclusively, or you can work with one that is “carrier agnostic.” Also called “carrier neutral,” this means that that provider is not in an exclusive relationship with one carrier. Why does it matter whether your provider is involved in one or many relationships? We’ll explain.

Picking the Right Partner

The truth is, you may never know if your Northern Colorado internet provider is carrier agnostic or not. However, there are a number of benefits of relying on one that is. They include:

  • Loyalty to customers over carriers. When a service provider has an exclusive agreement with one data carrier, that carrier has a lot of leverage in the relationship. Contrast that with a carrier-agnostic provider who uses many carriers. In that scenario, the provider can focus more on its relationship with the consumer and less on the carrier’s concerns.
  • Flexibility to take advantage of innovation. Service providers who are exclusive with one carrier can easily find themselves falling behind if another carrier enhances their offering with faster speeds, new services, etc. Can the provider switch allegiance to the other company? Possibly, but contractual obligations and other challenges related to making the change can leave them unable or unwilling to do so.
  • A backup plan. While it’s unlikely that any of the major data carriers would ever suffer a long-term service interruption, what happens to an internet provider who uses on carrier exclusively? It could result in a major inconvenience to their residential customers and a serious problem for their business customers. Carrier-agnostic providers don’t have to worry about that, which means their customers can rest easy as well.
