Pipex launch new business packages
Pipex has enlarged its range of products with four new products aimed at the small and medium enterprise market.
- Pipex Lite: £14.50 per month, with 25GB allowance and up to 8Mbps ADSL connection.
- Pipex Pro: £19.50 per month, up to 16Mbps downloads via ADSL2+, up to 1Mbps uploads, unlimited usage allowance, prioritised traffic and enhanced care option.
- Premium: £32 per month, up to 16Mbps, unlimited usage allowance and an assured bandwidth of 200Kbps.
- Premium +: £49 per month, up to 16Mbps, unlimited usage allowance and an assured bandwidth of 500Kbps.
It should be pointed out that the residential Pipex Pro product is different to the business range Pipex Pro product. Also for those thinking that the Pipex Lite product looks a bargain for 25GB of usage, remember that business products are usually listed with VAT @ 17.5% excluded from the price.
The enhanced care option is one that not many broadband providers offer yet, but it provides for a 10 hour repair time if the broadband fails. If taking enhanced care it is recommended that you also take Total Care for the telephone service too. Assured bandwidth options have existed for a while on the standard BT Wholesale products, and may appeal to power consumers too.
The ADSL2+ speeds are only available at exchanges where Pipex has its own hardware and at other exchanges a standard ADSL connection will be offered, we presume with an upgrade as ADSL2+ rolls out on the BT Wholesale network.
All the products carry a choice of three month or twelve month contract, the difference is that on the shorter contract the WiFi router becomes an optional £34.03, rather than been bundled in for free.
