5 ways a data pool will save you money


Pooled data means avoiding overage

Instead of signing up for multiple SIMs with 1GB of data each and wasting a lot of it, our pooled data packages let you buy a large pool of data and share it between connections. For example, you could split 5G of data between 100 SIMs, allowing data-hungry services like CCTV to take the lion’s share. You’d pay considerably less overall.

Less chance of breaching limits

With individual SIM limits, there’s always a chance of users or devices breaching their data allowance in any given month and your business being charged heavily as a result. With pooled services, spare data from lighter users or devices can be taken up by those with more data hungry requirements. It’s the total data usage of all your devices that matters, so if one user or device has a particularly busy month, it won’t lead to spiralling costs.

Choose the best pool for you

There are three main kinds of pooled data.

  • Fixed Pools, where a fixed amount of data is chosen in advance.
  • Aggregated Pools, which change every time a SIM is added or removed.
  • Buffer Pools, which operate at an account level and can reduce data overage charges significantly.

Most security businesses will have predictable usage, meaning a fixed pool will be the most appropriate. But if you’re adding new devices to your security infrastructure, an aggregated pool might make more sense, at least in the short term. Choosing the right pooled data type for you can lead to reduced costs, and our specialists at Everything Voice can help you make the most cost-effective decision.


Flexible by design

Everything Voice pooled data SIMs are highly flexible. For example, they work with multi-network E-SIMs, so if one network goes down, they simply switch to the next strongest signal. That means fewer false alarms, fewer site visits to reset devices, and significant savings.

Getting the picture

Our pooled data also works in tandem with SD-Internet to improve services and reduce costs. For example, sites that use CCTV need a fixed IP and extra bandwidth to show clear pictures of intruders. SD-Internet can prioritise CCTV feeds while pooled data ensures they can dip into a shared resource and make use of data that other services don’t need. In addition, Everything Voice can turn any dynamic SIM into a fixed IP for just £50-£80 per month.

Cost savings and business continuity

There’s no greater cost saving than protecting your organisation from the worst effects of a natural disaster or cybersecurity emergency. According to one report, the average mean cost of a cyber security breach for a small business in the UK is £11,000. In other...
