The search giant has started selling its network of superfast internet connections to companies as a way to boost the efficiency of their business.
The company has launched a new service in the UK that it says will allow companies to make their own network of network connections for a fraction of the cost of buying a commercial network.
The superfast services will be available at all the major retail internet stores, including Amazon, Google, Apple and the likes of Microsoft, IBM, and Adobe.
It says the new products will give customers a way of connecting their devices to the company’s network at a fraction the cost, with a lower impact on the environment.
“The new technology enables companies to reduce the number of devices they have to install and the number that are being used in their operations, while also increasing efficiency,” the company said in a blog post.
“These new devices have the potential to transform how companies operate in a range of areas from productivity to business growth.”
The new services are being offered at retailers and at Amazon, where it also plans to roll out other superfast plans.
The companies will need to buy a network to run the superfast networks, which the company says can be up to 100 times more expensive than conventional networks.
The new products also include a range on the other end of the internet spectrum, offering speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
The technology is similar to that that companies use to build fibre optic networks, but it will allow internet providers to offer faster speeds for a fixed fee, rather than charging a monthly fee.
The first wave of the service was launched last month in the US, and will be rolled out to the rest of the world in the coming months.
“In the US we’re in a unique position to offer our customers a truly global network,” the CEO of BT, Sir Ian Golding, said in the blog post announcing the service.
“We know the importance of the future of our business and our customers, and it’s critical that we build on this and deliver a new network that meets the demands of tomorrow.”
