BT to offer combined fixed and mobile service for SMEs

17 Mar 2006

BT Group is to launch bundled fixed and mobile calls in a new package aimed at the UK small-to-medium sized enterprise (SME) market. BT has been trialling the Business Plan with Mobile service since July 2005. The package offers SMEs an annual 5% discount on combined fixed and mobile calls, capped fixed-to-mobile tariffs and other call discounts with a unified bill.

Meanwhile, BT has been contracted by the Welsh Assembly to provide broadband infrastructure for the remaining exchange areas in Wales needed to give the country 100% broadband coverage; currently around 99% of the population is covered. The new contract will connect around 10,000 rural households and businesses with a minimum 512kbps downlink at prices comparable to urban areas. The value of the deal was not disclosed.
