28 September 2005 – Be, who launched ‘Be home 24meg’ broadband this week have increased the upload speed to 1.3 meg after feedback from members. This is up to five times faster than other broadband providers.
The increased upload speed will allow members to run new services which require higher upload speeds such as VoIP, video conferencing, security surveillance and place shifting.
‘This upload speed will transform the capability for anyone wanting to upload content from pictures to pod-casts to place-shifting,’ comments Dana Pressman, Managing Director of Be. ‘It will make content sharing much easier and let users get far more out of the Internet than ever before.’
To join the broadband revolution, customers simply need a BT telephone line that is connected to an exchange in which Be has installed their equipment. The service costs £24 per month (plus a £24 connection fee) and there is no annual contract — Be simply ask for 3 months notice if members wish to cancel their service.
