BT has announced its long-expected 4G offerings for small and medium businesses, as the need for faster mobile connectivity to boost on-the-go working rises all the time.
BT is offering the 4G services over the EE mobile network after it signed a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) agreement with the company in March.
BT said 4G would be offered at no extra cost to its former 3G offerings, with new SMB customers, usually ranging between 20 and 250 employees, offered 4G services as standard. Existing customers will be offered a similar deal when their contracts are up for renewal. BT urged customers to get in touch if they want to try and negotiate an early deal, though.
Graham Sutherland, chief executive of BT Business, said that with mobile working becoming more important to businesses of all sizes, offering faster mobile speeds was a vital step forward for its portfolio of services.
“Our new plans give customers the connectivity they need to help them stay productive when out and about, along with the flexibility to choose a plan that suits their way of working,” he touted.-
Larger companies using the firm's Global Services division for communications services will have to wait for information about if and when 4G services will be made available.
The announcement comes as part of a wider push around BT's business mobility offerings, with its recent One Phone service designed to allow firms to ditch the need for fixed landline services and host all calls over a mobile network.
