BTo touts DSL discounts for Small.biz

Which is nice

BT Openworld has cut the cost of its business broadband services.

As of yesterday, companies currently using or signing up to Business packages - 500PLUS, Business 1000PLUS and Business 2000PLUS - will receive discounts of up to £240 per year. The deal applies to BT's low contention 20:1 products and covers Plug & Go, Engineer Install and Activation-only packages.

The cost of the Business 500PLUS service will be cut from £79.99 to £65.00 per month, Business 1000PLUS from £119.99 to £100.00 per month, and Business 2000PLUS from £149.99 to £130.00 per month.

All firms now signing up for any of the services will be charged the reduced fees, while existing users will see their quarterly bills cut on a pro rata basis from 1 September.

BT said it is cutting the prices "to boost broadband take-up across the SME community".

This price reduction for business DSL offerings follows hot on the heals of the telco's recent announcement that it is trialling a one megabit per second broadband ADSL connection aimed at the consumer market. ®
