The UK's small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are continuing to experience problems with their broadband providers, a study has indicated.
Research conducted by TalkTalk Business found that 59 per cent of firms have suffered connectivity woes, while just half feel they are getting good value for money.
A quarter of SME bosses said they were confused about the best package for their needs and more than one in five are looking to switch service providers.
"The research tells us loud and clear that Britain’s businesses deserve better, and we couldn’t agree more," said Charles Bligh, Managing Director of TalkTalk Business.
"Every business understands the benefits of fast, reliable business-grade broadband, but few realise you don’t have to pay above the odds for it."
He commented that TalkTalk Business' goal is to make British firms better off, by delivering more affordable broadband services.
"If you’re a small business owner and honestly don’t feel that your provider has your best interests at heart, that they understand your needs, and are committed to your growth, you are being underserved," Mr Bligh added.
He said that TalkTalk's message to SMEs is clear - that there is always a choice.
Companies should demand more from their broadband providers, Mr Bligh added.
In a bid to offer SMEs additional broadband options, TalkTalk Business has launched two new, tailored packages.
The firm says its Simply Broadband deal - which is available from £4 per month - is "the best value totally unlimited broadband package" for UK SMEs.
But companies seeking all-inclusive broadband and calls may be interested in its Complete Broadband bundle, which is available from £10.50 per month.
