BT Launch HALO for Biz Broadband and an SME Support Scheme

UK ISP BT Business has today extended the availability of their converged HALO packages to include small business customers, which combines their “fibre broadband“, 4G unlimited mobile and digital phone line (app based) service into a single bundle from £42.95 +vat per month. There’s also a new Small Business Support Scheme.

Just to recap, HALO includes “fibre broadband” (FTTC, FTTP, G.fast) that can automatically switch to 4G (mobile broadband) to help small businesses stay connected if there’s a problem with the fixed line (provided your area can get a good signal). The service also includes a “digital phone line that lets businesses use their office number remotely” and the unlimited mobile plan comes with “no data caps or speed restrictions” (but 5G is still an optional upgrade).

The packages all come attached to a 24 month minimum contract term, wireless router, UK based support, a fixed price guarantee and there’s a £9.99 one-off delivery charge to pay.

On top of that the provider has also launched a new Small Business Support Scheme, which aims to help small businesses build their recovery and growth following COVID-19 (this includes a series of measures aimed at boosting connectivity, cashflow and confidence amongst small businesses). For example, BT will subsidise firms up to £2,500 (on top of government gigabit vouchers) to get an Ethernet service installed and there’s a bursary scheme to give 1,000 UK tech start-ups a financial boost etc.

    Just to point out Halo is only available on lines over 38mbps

    We cannot get more then 25 (I’ve seen 28 once) so BT cannot offer Halo to us.

    With it being aimed at business, I was hoping for fast upload speeds, but the faster package that I can see is just 300/45 (for £55/m).

    Pretty disappointing :/

      Disappointment is relative to expectations. The best they can offer me is ADSL2+ with a guaranteed minimum speed of 0Mbps – now that’s absolutely disappointing.

    2. Avatar Spinach Curry says:

      BT Biz should be releasing 1000/220 on FTTP anytime soon, rather than the 1000/115 as available on their residential sibling.

    Great to see support for SMEs.
