Business broadband provider Easynet Connect has announced a new development to provide fixed-line broadband to small businesses.

The new Local Access Leased Line package will offer a fixed-price connection to customers from all of its 1,200 exchanges.

It is hoped that more than 70 per cent of all the UK's small companies will benefit from the scheme, which will be introduced via a local loop unbundling (LLU) project.

The first phase of the plan will see the Local Access Leased Line service introduced at 50 of the exchanges by the end of 2009.

Chris Stening, Managing Director of Easynet, explained: "Local Access Leased Line will definitely help bring next-generation broadband to more small businesses without breaking the bank.

"The increased bandwidth can open up new opportunities to thousands of businesses, especially many who could not previously access high-speed internet."

Recent research from the ISP revealed that small businesses see the internet as an essential tool and would cut back on IT hardware, support services and software licences to save costs during the recession.
