O2 To Improve Business Broadband Services
By: MarkJ - 11 February, 2008 (9:43 AM)

Ben Dowd, O2's director of business sales, last week hinted that the operator would aim to improve its business broadband and 'Mobile Broadband' (3G) services in two key ways by the end of 2008.

Firstly O2 intends to upgrade its HSDPA based 'Mobile Broadband' (3G) network to operate at speeds of up to 10.2Mbps downstream, which is only a few Megabits per second off the technologies theoretical maximum (14.4Mbps).

Dowd also suggested that a new fixed-line broadband service aimed squarely at small and medium sized business would be forthcoming, including an option for much larger corporations. These would be based off the same unbundled ADSL2+ broadband technology that O2 acquired with its acquisition of 'Be' in 2006.

O2 currently only operates a consumer broadband service and has yet to expand this into the business realm. Though we hope they launch a new website soon too because the current one has long been difficult and confusing to navigate.
