Everything Everywhere has announced a range of new ‘Super Bundles’ including a new petabyte plan for its business customers that it claims will save businesses millions of pounds annually on broadband bills.
EE notes that the bundles have been designed through feedback from business users such that they cater to the ever increasing demand of data connectivity from businesses, corporate and public sector organizations. The new petabyte bundle doesn’t carry any expiry date and customers can scale up or down as per their requirement and their usage. They can even can add more SIM cards as and when required.
Targeted at data intensive businesses and corporate including broadcasting firms that use satellite uplinks for connectivity, Super Bundles have been categorized based on the data usage including 50TB, 100TB, 200TB, 500TB and 1PB. Each GB has been priced at £8. Satellite uplinks cost upwards of £20 per GB and if a business opts for 1PB package, they will end up saving £12 million annually.
This will also save businesses from booking satellite uplinks in advance and give them easy access to 4G connectivity as and when they need it.
Olaf Swantee claimed that all carriers except Everything Everywhere will have a hard time coping with the growing 4G service demand as they are not in possession of enough spectrum. While speaking at the Huawei’s Mobile Broadband Forum Swantee claimed that EE will be the only mobile operator company in UK which will be able to handle the increasing 4G demand in the coming years, while rival companies like O2 and Vodafone would struggle in handling the 4G demand.
