CI-Net has made its business broadband service available in ten locations across the UK, it has been reported.

The high-speed fixed wireless access service – RedKite – offers download and upload speeds of 20Mb from £3,000 per year, reports ISPreview.

Graham McLean, Managing Director of CI-Net, said Burstable RedKite gives customers "extra flexibility and peace of mind" in areas such as London, Birmingham and Oxford.

Users know they are covered if they have short periods when they need extra bandwidth, he added.

Mr McLean said: "This could be down to performing a big online backup, for example, or a sudden increase in web traffic if they host their own website or just the odd busy period in the month when they need a slightly bigger 'internet pipe'."

He added that in some instances, businesses choose RedKite as an additional connection alongside their traditional cable based service.

"Because it's totally separate from any BT or carrier provided service, it gives them extra resilience and supports business continuity," he noted.

Last month, Mr McLean said he expected disaster recovery benefits to drive adoption of its cloud-based application hosting service.
