BT Business Broadband Packages & Deals

As the UK’s largest broadband provider, BT is widely available to connect homes to the Internet. It’s also known for being the largest provider of fixed-line phone services to consumers. However, residential broadband and phone packages aren’t designed to fulfil the needs of businesses. This is why BT has a separate business division. BT Business focuses on providing broadband connections and phones for workplaces of any size, including small businesses and large offices. It even offers telecoms solutions for remote workers. Each company and sector has its own needs, however – so you’ll need a BT Business deal that suits your workplace specifically.

From basic landline packages to the latest fibre-powered broadband and digital phone lines, BT Business presents a range of deals. This article highlights the best and cheapest BT Business deals available, allowing your business to stay connected for less.

What is BT Business broadband?

BT Business broadband refers to the Wi-Fi services it offers. This allows you to connect your work-related devices to the Internet, including laptops, mobiles, and printers. The service is specifically tailored to the needs of businesses, differentiating it from BT’s residential deals.

What does BT Business broadband offer?

BT Business broadband is separate to BT’s home broadband services. It delivers an enhanced online experience thanks to:

  • minimum Internet speed guarantees
  • prioritised web traffic over residential BT customers
  • free Wi-Fi for your guests and customers when visiting your workplace
  • the option for a static Internet protocol (IP address)
  • 24/7 customer support.

ADSL Broadband

Asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) broadband is one of the types of Internet connection offered by BT Business. It uses copper phone lines to deliver a basic broadband connection.

BT Business’ ADSL plans offer download speeds of up to 17Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 1Mbps. These speeds should suffice for everyday Internet use in a small business – but if your team comprises more than a few people, fibre broadband is preferable.

Fibre-optic broadband

If you’re looking for faster broadband speeds and greater reliability, BT Business offers fibre broadband packages.

BT’s standard fibre broadband deals use fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) connections. This means you receive broadband via fast fibre-optic cables until the nearest street cabinet. From here to your property, slower copper cables deliver your Internet connection.

You can expect download speeds of up to 74Mbps and upload speeds of up to 19Mbps with these BT Business fibre connections.

Full Fibre broadband

BT Business now offers Full Fibre business broadband, offering some of the fastest Internet speeds available.

BT Business’ Full Fibre connections use fibre to the premises (FTTP) technology. This means your business will receive Internet access via fibre cables only, without any slowdown from copper lines. This Full Fibre connection can handle many devices at once, making it perfect for busy teams who frequently attend video conferences. BT Business Full Fibre packages offer download speeds of up to 900Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 110Mbps.

Note that BT’s Full Fibre rollout is still underway, so FTTP connections aren’t available everywhere yet. You can check availability on BT Business’ online checker.

Why chose bt for your companies broadband

BT Business customer care

Modern businesses depend on a constant and high-speed Internet connection – but if that fails, you’ll need prompt support from your provider. Unfortunately, BT Business’ customer service currently scores 2.1 stars on Trustpilot – equivalent to a ‘poor’ rating. Ofcom’s latest report on the quality of providers’ customer service revealed that BT Business isn’t sufficiently prompt when repairing broadband faults. Customers can expect repairs by the end of the next working day after reporting an issue – meaning that Wi-Fi outages may last long enough to cause significant disruption.
