Fast business broadband cuts costs, says expert
Fast business broadband can help firms to reduce costs and even potentially increase their sales.

Speaking to the North West Evening Mail, John Paul Annett - who sells picture frames and mirrors in County Down, Northern Ireland - said his super-fast broadband connection has saved his operation "an absolute fortune".

Mr Annett explained the rollout of fibre optic broadband across the country has meant he can trim his outgoings by £6,000 per month, as he can now supply catalogues to customers via email rather than shelling out for printing costs.

The businessman went on to express his belief that the improved speeds have also had a knock-on effect with regards to sales.

"When you're speaking to a retailer, you're able to email a whole set of catalogues straightaway and speak to them on the phone with it," he commented.

More firms should get to benefit from the technology in the future, after the government outlined plans to bring a high-speed connection to every UK community.
