Axis, the UK’s leading business telecoms and utilities provider, is launching a free business broadband for life offer today, to help SME businesses reduce their costly office overheads.
Axis for Business has been operating since 2001; building a company that supplies a full utilities provision to SMEs and larger companies within the UK. The offer of free broadband for life could potentially help businesses reduce operating costs.
The offer is open to all Axis for Business’ new customers. New customers will be rewarded with 12-month free broadband initially. And, by referring just one business to Axis, could see them enjoying free broadband for life for their business. Axis for Business also invested in a unique customer referral program, Get Ambassador. This gives its customers the opportunity to become brand ambassadors, allowing them to earn savings for their own business, while assisting Axis for Business, with its own growth strategy. David Meyers, Managing Director of Axis says of the offer: “Axis for Business has been providing value telecoms and utilities for business for many years.
We appreciate funds can be tight for some during this tough economic climate; all businesses have to do is to refer new business to us, then they get to enjoy at least £264* savings a year on overheads. “We are aiming to differentiate ourselves in the market and grow our market share by using our customer base to refer other businesses through referral marketing.” Axis for Business is aiming to get their customers connected, who might be switching from the main broadband providers. It is also predicted that businesses moving premises, will be attracted to the offer, as it will hopefully help avoid the lengthy delays that occur with some providers, where companies are often left waiting weeks for installation of broadband. Start saving now with Axis for Business, visit www.axisforbusiness.co.uk for more information or call the customer service team at 0800 2889 430. *£264 is in comparison with BT phone line and broadband service.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers.

You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
