Pipex has announced that it is to increase upload speeds on its new packages of ADSL business broadband.
Now contracts offering download speeds of up to 16Mb will also come with upload speeds going to 2.5 Mb from 1.0Mb.
This Pipex Pro deal is available to business customers at a price of £19.50 per month
Commenting on the news, Lance Spencer, product and marketing director for Tiscali-owned Pipex, said that upload speeds are vital for businesses.
He explained: "Download speed alone is not necessarily a critical performance factor for businesses. Small businesses providing professional services such as new media, design, architecture or technology will be liberated by enhanced and assured upstream.
"In addition businesses wanting the consistency and reliability from their broadband to run multiple and real-time applications such as Voice over IP, conferencing and remote applications will benefit from these new powerful services at a fraction of the cost of traditional BT SDSL services."
Prioritised traffic is one of the features that comes as standard with a Pipex business broadband deal.
