BT’s first business converged product switches to 4G during broadband outage

Fresh from detailing its first converged consumer products, BT is now offering a new business service that combines its broadband and mobile networks.

The concept behind BT 4G Assure is simple – if BT’s broadband network fails, customers will connect to EE’s 4G network.

Businesses who sign up will receive a mobile broadband dongle which plugs into the BT Hub router, which will automatically switch if it detects a fault. It will then check for a broadband connection every second, and once a stable signal has been restored, it will switch back.
