Broadband options
Broadband type Fixed-line broadband is available either as standard (ADSL) broadband, or fibre optic. Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable, but it isn’t available everywhere and can cost more.
Monthly usage allowance The amount you download determines the broadband package you should get. To keep things simple, we ask if you would like to see packages which are unlimited. These packages are ideal for users who are online for several hours during the day, or use the internet extensively for entertainment - like downloading movies and TV, streaming entertainment, or playing games. They are also good for large households where several people go online at the same time. If that sounds like you, pick ‘Just unlimited’.
Minimum speed Your broadband speed determines how fast web pages load, files are downloaded, the time streaming video takes to buffer, and more. For a big household, or one where you stream lots of video or play games, a fast speed is recommended

Business broadband at superfast speeds

If your business needs a little extra from a broadband connection, fibre optic is the way to go. It’s quicker, more reliable, and can generally handle a whole lot more.Here’s everything you need to know.

How fast is fibre optic business broadband?

For business connections, fibre packages can give you speeds of anything up to 1Gb - that’s 1,000 megabits per second. A handful of providers, like BT, will even do special connections with speeds up to 10Gb.

Most, however, will offer speeds up to 76Mb - the same as you’ll get on high-end home broadband - which is plenty fast.

Does my business need fibre optic broadband?

Fibre broadband means faster download speeds, faster upload speeds, more bandwidth to share, and lower latency. Your business could seriously benefit from fibre if…

  • Multiple people need to get online at once
  • You need to instantly sync data
  • You want to hold video calls and use Skype
  • You’re hosting any kind of web service
  • Uploading files is important
  • You want to log onto your computer remotely

On the other hand, if only one or two people need to use the internet, or you’ll only be using it for a bit of browsing and email, you’ll probably be fine with a standard ADSL connection. See our guide to broadband for small businesses for more info on what you may need.

Or, if you have a large office and think you’ll need something more intensive, we recommend looking into enterprise broadband. Call 0800 092 5745 to find out more.

What do I get with fibre business broadband?

For a start, fibre broadband gives you faster speeds. Standard ADSL connections usually offer download speeds up to about 17Mb, but basic fibre speeds are double that. Faster internet means you can sync data, use cloud services, make VoIP and video calls, host servers, and access online work materials more effectively. Plus, it lets more people use the internet at once.

Businesses get a few things extra though, and one of those is often dedicated tech support and customer service. Because providers understand how important broadband is to your business, most of them will give you priority support should anything go awry with your connection - and they’ll make sure you suffer less downtime.

You’ll also get more business-focused internet security - something vital to make sure you don’t get bothered by malware, phishing, or hackers.

Plus, you’ll have access to more advanced telecoms services, like a static IP address, web hosting, domain names, cloud storage, or professional business phone lines. Exactly what you can get depends on your provider, though. To get them, have a look at what your chosen provider offers before you sign up, and request them when you take out a package. Or, call up after the fact and ask for them at any point.

FAQ

  1. What is business broadband?

    Business broadband packages are designed to cater for workplaces, including offices, rather than homes. They are typically tailored to support multiple users, and offer additional features such as inclusive website domain names, email accounts, static IP addresses, comprehensive technical support, and more.

  2. What do I need from business broadband?

    Every company is unique, and every company will likely need slightly different things from their broadband. There are, however, a few constants that are likely to benefit any type of business:

    • Speed - A dawdling connection will cost you time, money and likely cause widespread annoyance to boot. Check both average download speeds (how long it takes to retrieve data from the web) and average upload speeds (how fast it is send information from your computers over the web) when researching packages.
    • Unlimited usage - In business, you don’t want to be held back by how much you can download. Fortunately, most business broadband providers offer unlimited downloads.
    • Technical support - Many business broadband packages offer comprehensive technical support, so you can get advice, and have things up and running as soon as possible.

  3. Can I use a home broadband connection for my business?

    If you have a home office, work as a sole trader, or work freelance, you may find that a home broadband package is adequate for your needs. The important thing is to consider how you’ll use it and the impact that will have. If you’re using your connection for business as well as your family’s personal use, for example, what will this mean for speeds or download limits?

    On the other hand, some kinds of business will need the special features offered by a business package. An email server will need a static IP address, for example.

  4. Can I have a second phone line installed?

    Yes, it's possible to get a second phone line installed into a property. There are many reasons you might want to do this - getting a business-specific line, or splitting your property into flats or rented rooms, for example.

    The cost of fitting a second line will vary depending on who your provider is, and you may have to wait a few days until an engineer is available to do the work. Contact the provider for more information.

  5. Why do we need your postcode?
    It allows us to find broadband, phone and TV deals in your area, as what’s available depends on where you live. Different kinds of broadband - whether BT Infinity, or Virgin Media's cable network - have rolled out to different areas of the country, and this varies a lot by postcode.

    However, we take your privacy very seriously, which means we won’t pass it on to any other companies or organisations. For more on this, please take a look at our privacy policy. This means you can put your postcode into our comparison calculator and look for a package that’s both better and cheaper than the one you’ve got safe in their knowledge that you won’t be bombarded with junk mail in the near future.
  6. How long does it take to switch to fibre?
    It varies between providers, but usually within a couple of weeks from when you place the order. It can be much quicker, or it can be slightly longer, depending on whether you need an engineer to visit you. Your new provider will give you a more accurate idea of how long the switching process will take.
  7. How does fibre optic broadband work?

    Fibre optic broadband works by sending information down fibre optic cable instead of a traditional copper wire. It moves incredibly quickly and encounters less resistance, so you get broadband that’s much closer to the advertised speeds than standard (ADSL) broadband wholly through your phone line, where performance is more variable.

    In most cases, the fibre cables run to the nearest street cabinet, with the final leg of the connection - between the cabinet and your house - being either copper telephone wire or, in the case of Virgin Media, coaxial cable. As a result, some speed degradation will still occur, but you’ll still experience speeds well beyond those you’d get with standard broadband.
