Internet Connect benefits and features

  • Always on, or your money back: Many providers offer a 99.9 per cent service level target. But can you really afford eight hours’ downtime a year? Our 100 per cent service level target for our fibre based services means that we provide a service you can rely upon.
  • Guaranteed speed: You won’t be sharing your connection with other customers as you may do with other suppliers, so speed stays constant, even at peak times. You can get access from 2Mbps to 10Gbps and with national coverage from a range of access choices.
  • Stay in control: You can manage your costs by changing bandwidth in as little as 72 hours, so you only pay for what you need. And you’ll always know exactly what you’re getting because you can check performance online.
  • Keep customers happy: If your access is speedy and reliable, your websites will be too. And that means a better experience for your customers and more revenue. You’ll be closer to customers too – 35 per cent of UK broadband users are on the same network.
  • Built-in security: We monitor for Denial of Service attacks as standard and BT Cleanfeed protects you against illegal content. You also have the option of malicious attack and DDoS protection. We share security measures and experience across our whole network to bring you the best there is. And we’re the UK’s number one managed IT security provider.

Web pages load in a fraction of the time they used to take and we have been able to provide more external access to lighten the workload on office-based staff.”
