BT launches superfast business broadband

Just days after announcing the pricing structures for home broadband users, UK telco BT has revealed that most business users can get 40 megabit fibre optic connections for £30 a month.

The new service will allow UK firms to set up multiple VoiP connections, run hi def video conferencing as well as the usual Web connections, e-mails and thousands of wasted man hours playing Scrabble of Facebook.

Connections will be subject to a minimum 24-month contract and will incur a £75 connection fee.
