A new head has been appointed at broadband provider BE to take control of the ship- Chris Stening joins the company from his previous role of managing director at BSkyB business Easynet Connect which he joined from UK Online. Chris will be responsible for strategy planning as well as creating and putting across the company's vision.
"BE has an excellent reputation in the market and I look forward to working with our Head of BE Wholesale, Dan Cunliffe to develop our wholesale business. Our superior quality network with proven reliability means that it's truly built for business applications such cloud computing, VoIP or HD video conferencing. We're the newest competitor in the wholesale broadband market and, backed by O2/Telefonica, we offer a refreshing, credible and reliable alternative to the current incumbent providers."Chris Stening, (MD) BE
BE recently launched BE Wholesale which is looking to challenge for a greater share of the wholesale marketplace. The ADSL2+ network they operate covers over 70% of businesses across 1300 exchanges. One key advantage of this is that users have access to faster upload speeds of 2.5Mbps which enables more advanced applications like video conferencing and VoIP to work seamlessly. Over 30 service providers are already using the network.
