Fuel Business Broadband and phone

You may know Fuel Broadband ( as the provider that specialises in simple, affordable broadband packages - or you may just know it by its former name, Primus Saver. It focuses on great value ADSL connections for homes, but businesses can also get super speedy fibre optic broadband and phone deals. Here’s a quick lowdown on its straightforward plans.

What can I get from Fuel Business?

Fuel’s business packages are fairly similar to its home ones. There are three basic choices:

  • Business Phone and Broadband - Up to 16Mb download speeds with unlimited downloads. Phone is pay-as-you-go on some pretty competitively-priced tariffs, though you can upgrade to include daytime UK landline calls. It’s perfect for small businesses, especially ones in residential areas like home businesses and shops.
  • Business Fibre Broadband - Choose between download speeds of up to 38Mb or up to 76Mb - both of which have unlimited downloads. This package also includes line rental, either with 500 UK minutes per month, or unlimited UK landline calls.
  • Business Phone - Either on standard pay-as-you-go calls, or upgraded to include daytime UK landline calls. Line rental is very reasonable compared with a lot of other providers, so this is a great choice for a business where a phone is necessary but internet isn’t.

All Fuel’s business packages are on 24-month contracts.

You can upgrade your phone plan to include call features, such as anonymous caller reject, caller display, three-way calling, and ring back.

What’s good about Fuel Business?

  • Very affordable, especially for business-grade broadband, with some of lowest line rental around
  • Unlimited downloads on all broadband packages, so you don’t have to worry about hitting a usage cap and stopping work
  • Straightforward packages that are easy to understand
  • Fibre optic broadband available with superfast download speeds of up to 76Mb
  • Great for small businesses that need the value and security of business connection, but don’t need a huge amount of bandwidth
  • Strong UK-based customer service

What’s bad about Fuel Business?

  • Only available on 24 month contracts
  • Adding calling features can get expensive, and there’s no option to bundle a few of them together
  • Very few options for large businesses, or offices that needs lots of employees online at once - Fuel doesn’t offer leased lines like BT or Ethernet connections like TalkTalk
  • No options for business features such as hosting services, data storage programmes, lots of phone lines, static IPs, or symmetrical upload and download speeds
  • No broadband-only packages - line rental from Fuel must be included too

Frequently Asked Questions

  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.

    That’s where we can help. Simply enter your postcode into our comparison service, and we’ll automatically find the best deals available in your area. Then it’s a simple matter to compare options and find the best package for the best price. Click the package you want, and we’ll send you straight to the right place on the provider’s website. Easy, simple and hassle-free.
  4. Do I need anti-virus software or other protection?
    The internet is full of threats, from viruses that disrupt your systems, to hackers, spam and other inconveniences. So internet security software - anti-virus, spam protection, a firewall for example - is absolutely essential. Many providers offer this software alongside broadband packages for free, or at a reduced cost, so make sure you check when switching packages.
  5. 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.

  6. Do I need fibre optic broadband?

    Fibre optic broadband is much faster and much more reliable than broadband through the phone line, but it’s not essential for everyone. If you just want to browse the web, check email, Facebook, Twitter etc, you’ll be fine with standard broadband through the phone line.

    However, if you stream a lot of video, download music, films and games, and other such activities, you will likely find a fibre connection hugely beneficial.

    It’s also a boon for large households, especially ones with lots of gadgets like smartphones, tablets, and computers connected up most of the time. The more people using a connection, the slower it will be, so if you have a big family where lots of people want to connect to the web at the same time, for example, a fibre connection will ensure everyone can get a good experience.
