For small businesses and homeworkers, O2 has been identified as an obvious choice for broadband.
In its report on the top ten broadband deals available for small companies, Network Portal has noted O2 as offering excellent value, with a 16Mbps Premium service available from £10 per month including VAT.
Commenting on the service, the online resource notes: "O2 bypasses BT's network and instead uses its own ADSL2+ enabled infrastructure to deliver faster than usual speeds."
Other notable deals in the list include Orange's Home Max package, which is useful for both domestic and commercial users, with no apparent restrictions on using the service in an office.
Residential and business provider Be Unlimited comes in third, which is touted for its 24Mbps download speed and its unlimited usage allowance.
Be is an award-winning broadband supplier and is advertised as the fastest provider in the country.
Rounding off the top five of Network Portal's list are Virgin Media's XL service and the UK Online Premier package.
