BT Details Business Total Broadband Packages

Broadband being the commodity item it is now, it's not often we get to highlight a particular deal for being anything other than just the lowest price, or largest data allowance. BT Business Total Broadband, though, is unusual in that not only are the packages pretty darned compelling, but they're provided by BT - not exactly a paragon of great deals in recent times.

The packages available line up as follows:

The pick of the bunch is probably the £26.99 deal, unless remote support is of particular use to you, as it offers as much usage as anyone could realistically ever need for a pretty compelling price. BT's idea of 'fair use' means shaping users' traffic if their use of the service is considered too excessive, according to the company's T&Cs, which only the most avid of downloaders will ever exceed.

Despite being called business deals, these offerings are pretty much ideal for anyone looking to get a decent package offering mobile data usage alongside 'home' broadband. The only downside is the rather long 24-month contract, but as catches go, it's not such a bad one.

"BT's idea of 'fair use' correlates to 3GB according to the deal's T&Cs"

Not a typo. I wish I had a fast enough connection to manage that kind of downloading...

Still seems odd, the cheaper package comes with 10GB allowance but the more expensive with only 3?

We're on BT Broadband as a backup to our main WAN connection (which goes down faster than a... oh, it's just too obvious). 3Gb is definitely not right, otherwise we'd be in a lot of trouble with BT right. Plus, obviously, it's doesn't make sense when compared to the 10Gb of the first package.

According the the link in the article the 3gb limit is for the mobile broadband part, and im guessing it applies to the lowest package as it offers "unlimited" usage.

Okay, on closer inspection it appears Unlimited really is, but if you "abuse the service" you'll have your traffic shaped such as you get less bandwidth at certain times.

Am I being bling here (very possibly) but I cant see how fast the connection is. I do find it amazing that they can still get away with saying "unlimited" when it states that there is a 3gb limit.

All these prices are ex VAT BTW. Also the `free` mobile broadband offered on options 2 & 3 will revert to &#16312.50+VAT PCM after the initial agreement period of 24 months (but obviously anyone signing up is likely to jump ship at that point).





I don't really find these deals very compelling though - I get 8Mb ADSL for a tenner a month - plus Web 'n Walk (including using my Mobile as a modem) for a fiver a month so that's &#16315. (On top of that I pay for my landline phone rental/calls & mobile calls etc but it doesn't look like that is included in the BT packages either - i.e. I guess you would have to pay for phone line connection & calls on top?)





May be compelling for business (haven`t looked at competition since not interested from that POV) but not that compelling from a consumer POV IMHO.
