      UK Online now provides business broadband products

      A few months ago, we mentioned the possibility of Sky supplying Business Broadband.

      Although not directly Sky, UK Online are part of Easynet, which are owned by Sky.

      This is from their website: UK Online

      Leading broadband provider emerges as small business broadband provider
      UK Online today unveils a new focus for its award winning broadband service with the launch of a new broadband service that will give the four million businesses between one and ten employees a business strength option at a competitive monthly charge. UK Online Business Broadband is available from 19.99 (excluding VAT) per month.*

      The unlimited service with UK based, 24/7 Freephone support, comes with download speeds of up to 8Mb and 768k upload speeds**, free McAfee security worth 49.99, and free domain with 20 email addresses and webmail. ***

      Chris Stening, Managing Director, UK Online explained: "Small businesses are currently choosing from either low priced consumer services or high priced business packages designed for the larger SME. They are desperate for a well supported but reasonably priced professional broadband service from someone that understands their unique needs."

      UK Online appreciates that small businesses need to be online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which is why it is including 24/7 freephone technical support and free McAfee Internet Security.
