BT Business is also offering businesses greater savings by also introducing 500 free UK calling minutes per calendar month per line (fixed or VoIP).
Businesses opting for one of the new BT Business One Plan Inclusive packages will receive more value by combining unlimited calls with a range of communications options including broadband and mobile. Consolidating their fixed, mobile and broadband spend under One Plan enables customers to set and control their monthly communications spend.
Bill Murphy managing director, BT Business, said: “Giving unlimited fixed line calling to businesses in this way is a first and will shake-up the market. Businesses are continuously striving to manage their costs better, but also need to stay connected to their customers to thrive. With a low fixed monthly fee we are the only provider to offer businesses such great peace of mind. By removing the worry that unexpected costs can bring, companies now have more time to focus on what they do best and look after their business.”
The 2009 Business Pulse – the largest survey to be undertaken of small businesses this year – showed that 42 per cent of small businesses have succeeded in managing their costs better through the downturn, which continues to be a priority. Many still have efficiencies to be made with 17 per cent citing an increase in their business costs and 16 per cent of businesses citing an increase in debt.
“BT Business One Plan is a great way to put big company benefits within the reach of small companies,” said Chris Caffery, company secretary, Homecarers – a care service provider for the elderly based in Liverpool. “Finally there is an offer that allows smaller enterprises to manage their day to day communications while helping to save money. It’s reassuring to know that every type of call is covered so we can worry less about the number of calls staff are making and focus more on enabling them to work flexibly and respond faster to people’s needs.”
The unlimited package is available to customers of BT Business One Plan, One Plan Plus and One Plan Traditional and customers can combine their broadband and calls from only £27.50 per month.
Under BT Business One Plan all service and billing enquiries are dealt with through one number, and customers will receive one bill for all services. BT Business Broadband offers a 99.99 per cent reliable broadband service; nine out of 10 faults are resolved in under four hours and 95 per cent of calls to our 24/7 UK help desk are answered within 30 seconds.
