What is the difference between ‘best effort’, ‘priority’ and ‘committed’ bandwidth?
In short, the difference is that best effort bandwidth operates on a first come first serve basis, priority bandwidth allows certain traffic to be processed first while committed bandwidth ensures you always have 1:1 bandwidth available for your data.
Larger businesses with more specific network requirements use priority and committed to ensure bandwidth is always available with high reliability to support critical services, including phone systems, videoconferencing, cloud applications and more. Whereas smaller businesses with fewer connection requirements typically use best effort bandwidth for non-critical applications, including web browsing, email, streaming content and more.
