BT Business broadband packages

You can choose from six standard and superfast fibre optic packages, which you can either get with a BT phone line - we'll talk about call plans later - or standalone if you already have one. From there, you can add extras to build the exact package you want.

All BT Business broadband packages come with a BT Hub, which is a 'smart' router - this means it automatically detects and compensates for interference, so your Wi-Fi should stay up more.

BT Business also gives you up to 10 email addresses with its business broadband packages, and free use of its network of public Wi-Fi hotspots - perfect if you or your employees regularly travel for work.

The six BT business broadband packages are as follows:

BT Business broadband extras

On top of its broadband packages, BT Business also offers a number of extras that you can add to your package for an extra charge.

Static IP addresses

An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies a computer on a network. It tells other computers where to send information - much like a physical address tells you where to go in the real world.

With home broadband packages, the IP address changes each time you connect to the internet, but with a static IP address, it remains the same all the time. That means you can do more with your business broadband, such as use it to connect to a PC remotely and create a virtual private network.

Leased lines

If you have a larger business with lots of people online a lot, or if internet access is critical to your business, you might want to consider a leased line from BT Business.

This gives your business broadband you don't have to share with anyone else. As a result it's more reliable and much faster than standard and fibre business broadband packages - they offer upload and download speeds ranging from 2Mb to 10Gb.
