Broadband provider Easynet Connect has launched its new SureStream service, which offers guaranteed speeds of 8Mb.
Available from £399 per month for all small and medium-sized businesses based close to the company's 1,200 exchanges in the UK, the leased line equivalent service is thought to be around half the price of BT's platform.
It is believed that over 70 per cent of small firms will be able to enjoy the service, which comes backed by the provider's service level guarantee and four-hour issue response time.
Chris Stening, Managing Director of Easynet Connect, said: "Small businesses are facing increased economic pressures to reduce their IT spend which is why it is important they can get the best value for their internet connection.
"To be able to have a leased line equivalent 8Mb service for around 50 per cent of the price of BT is making better value, high quality internet connectivity a reality."
Zen Internet recently launched new faster ADSL broadband services that offer connection speeds of up to 20Mb.
