Coronavirus: Keeping your business connected

We’re working hard to keep the nation connected. That’s why we’ve introduced new products, offers and resources. All designed to make things that little bit easier for our channel partners.

 

The network to support home working

With home working increasing, you need to be confident you can keep connected. There’s more than enough capacity in our network to handle demand.

Our network is designed to handle a 17Tbps evening peak in consumer traffic, driven by data heavy activity such as video streaming or downloads. 

Work-related applications such as video calls only uses around a quarter of that - which is why we're confident we're able to support mass-scale home working. 

 

We’re here for you

Here are a few of the things we’ve done to help make this time a little easier.

  • Making 101 calls free, to take pressure off 999 emergency service.
  • Implementing 12 offers for our channel partners to support business continuity.
  • Keeping Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) connected, by prioritising any CNI activity and providing various offers.
