BT doubles broadband speed for small UK businesses

The speed of their service has increased from 38Mbps to 76Mbps.

Over 40,000 small to medium sized UK businesses which currently use BT’s superfast fibre optic broadband, known as BT Infinity, have seen the speed of their service automatically double up from 38Mbps to 76Mbps.

This free upgrade is the latest move undertaken by the telecommunication giant in the current race to eventually provide every UK business with superfast fibre optic broadband.

Back in July, closest rival Virgin Media announced a plan to connect 9,000 firms to their superfast 300Mbps broadband network as part of the £3 billion Project Lightning initiative.

“By making 76Mbps our new standard business fibre broadband speed we’re helping the UK’s SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) work fast and smarter both in the office and at home, enabling them to grow and thrive,” said managing director of UK SME at BT Mike Tomlinson,” add to this our superfast 4G mobile network and our customers really are better connected than ever before”.

In the current economic climate, possessing a solid and speedy broadband connection could mean the difference between success and failure for an SME as it allows them to run a business much more effectively.

BT’s is also currently offering a £14 reduction in the monthly cost of line rental to new business customers who sign up to the Infinity broadband service before 28th November.
