FairASDL is launching low-cost broadband services for business, one of a number of Internet Service Providers (ISP) hoping to attract small business customers.
FairADSL is offering two new low-cost services firmly targeted at the emerging small to medium sized enterprise (SME) broadband market.
The ISP, which claims to have the UK's lowest broadband prices, has previously concentrated solely on the consumer market with its £18.99 per month, no frills broadband package.
SMEs can choose from a 512Kb connection with one fixed IP address and a contention ratio of 20:1 for £59.99 per month, or the same connection for just £25.99 per month with a contention ratio of 50:1 and no fixed IP address.
The fixed term contract is restricted to three months rather than the usual year. Fixed IP addresses can be bought for £4.99.
Installation costs are £33 plus the cost of the modem. FairADSL is selling two types: a single-port fairRouter at £99 and a four-port fairRouter at £119.
But Rupert Wood, an analyst with Analysys, warned that bargain basement ADSL prices, however well intentioned, could ultimately rebound on ISPs and customers.
"I don't think many SMEs will want to buy into value added services which ISPs could make money from to offset the lower prices," he said.
"I think ISPs should have learned that lesson the first time around with the narrowband market."
