Business security measures using SSL

BT is cutting the cost of its wholesale symmetrical digital subscriber line (SDSL) products in a bid to spark demand.

From November 1, the standard connection charge for BT IPstream and Datastream Symmetric will fall from £450 to £315, while the annual rental charges for IPstream products will fall from £1,380 to £966. It's hoped that ISPs will pass on the 30 per cent price cuts for its SDSL products to end users.

SDSL uses the same speed for both receiving and transmitting data and is much better suited to the transmission of large files. As a low-cost alternative to leased lines, it is ideal for a wide variety of small and medium-sized businesses such as engineering, media and finance, which have to send and receive large amounts of data. ®
