BT customers can now sign up for the ISP’s recently announced ‘BT Plus’ package which includes a guaranteed ‘Keep Connected’ promise that will see users sent a 4G mini hub if their fixed-line broadband suffers an outage.
Called 4G Assure, the product works by connecting a mobile broadband dongle to the existing Business Smart Hub and using software to proactively detects when the customer’s fixed broadband connection has been lost and switch to 4G.
Netgem – the technology firm which powers EE TV service – has launched a new Smart soundbar that providers users with enhanced TV sound and easy access to popular Video on Demand services, including Amazon’s Prime Video.
370 million anonymous data points – covering recordings, searches, EPG journeys, VOD and live channel watchings, are collected per day, providing a wealth of consumer behavioural data.
Andrew Haworth, BT’s managing director for Strategy and Content and a key figure in the ISP’s TV product, says the addition of services such as Amazon are a win both for consumers and providers.
