Broadband support

Projects and Products

All design offices will have at least one technician constantly urging his or her bosses to invest in the latest computer technology. With broadband internet they might just have a point, as an alternative to the more common individual access.

Information is streamed in, without the need to dial up, which also frees up phone lines. And it is quicker, which allows large amounts of information to be passed, such as drawings.

Nor does it necessarily cost more. Broadband providers are keen to claim a greater market share, and are currently offering some very good deals.

'We estimate that heavy users of ISDN lines will save £3,000 per year by switching to broadband.

ISDN is yesterday's technology, ' said BT president of internet services, Tony Harris.

BT is targeting its product at satellite offices and remote workers who can work from home with broadband, as efficiently as if linked up to a large company server.
