Broadband provider BT has revealed businesses that take up its new fibre-optic internet service will be guaranteed a minimum connection speed.
Companies in the UK that choose to take up the new high-speed broadband service, which offers download speeds of up to 40Mb, will be guaranteed a "stable throughput" of 12Mb.
Talking to PC Pro, a spokesperson from the broadband provider also confirmed that it would work to rectify any problems that could stop subscribers from receiving the service.
The company's representative said: "If a customer's throughput speed drops below 12Mb they should contact the 24/7 freephone helpdesk and we will accept and remedy the fault."
As well as launching the business fibre-optic broadband service, BT also recently launched its Infinity service for residential customers.
The service allows households to enjoy download speeds of up to 40Mb from £19.99 a month, which the company claims is over £7 cheaper than a corresponding service available from Virgin Media.
