BT Upgrades Business Broadband Services

BT has announced BT Business Total Broadband, its most complete broadband package, specifically designed just for small businesses.

Powered by business-grade broadband with download speeds of up to 8Mb, BT Business customers now get more value for money through a free Broadband Voice additional line offer, which gives customers capped UK and international calls over the internet, and our latest suite of security software, Internet Security Pack, which includes anti-virus and firewall software for all the PCs in the office.

BT Business Total Broadband also gives new Option 2 and 3 customers the freedom to use the internet wirelessly outside of the office with 250 free BT Openzone wireless minutes per month. This gives customers access to the internet at any of the 30,000 BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots in places such as cafes, hotels and airports in the UK and around the world.

Customers also receive the Business Essentials package, designed to make it easier for SMEs to run their business. The package includes ten Business Email Lite mailboxes and 20MB of Webspace, along with access to BT Workspace Lite, its latest collaboration tool that allows everyone within the company to store, access and share information.

As well as the comprehensive package, BT Business Total Broadband customers have a dedicated UK-based helpdesk that is reached via a free 0800 number.

New Option 3 customers will enjoy over £400 worth of additional value, this includes free access to IT Support Manager, BT Business’ advanced telephone support service, where software and configuration problems can be remedied remotely over the internet.

Bill Murphy, managing director of BT Business, said: “For business customers in particular, broadband is much more than just being able to send e-mails and having high speed access in the office. By taking advantage of the latest technologies, the internet opens up a world of possibilities for smaller businesses, meaning that teams can be more efficient and work together no matter where they are – whether in the same office, at home or in an airport lounge.

“Customers have told us that they want a broadband package which is designed with their business in mind. By launching our most complete broadband package just for business, we’re giving customers everything they need – business-grade broadband and support, security, collaboration tools and wireless access – which will allow them to concentrate on their business, rather than worrying about the technology.”
