Boost IT visibility and business value

Wireless broadband operator - Tele2 UK - is to concentrate on providing high-speed Internet access for business users.

Announcing a change in strategy the broadband operator said it had decided to move away from the consumer broadband market and focus instead on serving business customers.

The company - owned by Millicom International Cellular (MIC) - is to promote its business broadband service as a "superior alternative to DSL/ADSL, and equal to that of a leased line, but at a much lower cost".

Further details are expected to be released at the Internet World exhibition in London next month.

Tele2 was founded in 1998 and has since increased its fixed wireless broadband network to cover areas including Birmingham, Bristol, Reading and Sheffield.

The company has some 3,500 broadband customers, most of which are business users. ®
