BT broadband packages compared – which is the best for me?

All BT broadband deals now feature unlimited data allowances. So the main choice you’ll face with BT is what speed to go for. Standard ADSL broadband gives speeds of up to 17Mb which will probably give you a max download speed of around 2MB per second. Upgrade to BT Infinity – the company’s fibre optic offering – and you can choose between 52Mb and a super fast 76Mb.

After that, you can pay more to add home phone options and a TV subscription – although you may find some package bargains around Black Friday time. The latter includes a YouView box and access to the BT TV package of your choice – more on which below.

BT Unlimited Broadband
BT’s most affordable broadband offer gives up to 17Mb speed – that’s just over 2MB per second. That should still be plenty fast enough to let you browse the web, stream music and watch interruption-free catch-up TV. But it may struggle to …read more

North-east women to spread word on nut butter firm at BBC Good Food Show

Two North-east entrepreneurs have managed to secure a bursary to attend a national food show.

Hazel Farquhar and Susan Yule are behind Hungry Squirrel, which sells healthy nut butters.

Set up by Susan in May this year, the business has expanded and will now head to the BBC Good Food Show today for three days at the SEC Centre in Glasgow.

The opportunity to visit the event, which will be attended by around 20,000 people, came after Susan applied for a BBC bursary.

Susan, who still works part-time in IT, said: “I remember applying for the bursary just before heading away on holiday and thankfully we managed to secure one.

“If we were to pay for a stand at the event it would cost thousands, so getting this opportunity is going to be great for us. It will gives us a chance to see many different people outside our normal area.”

Susan set up the business after realising the nut butter market was lacking in choice.
As a result she decided to make her own and, along with Hazel, the partnership now makes five nut butters, including cookie dough cashew nut flavour and royal raspberry flavour – with another on the way.

“At the moment we work from home but at the rate we are going we will have to look at getting new premises,”

Susan added. “It is all hands on deck at the moment as we get ready for the show.”

Hazel, a design engineer who lost her job in the oil industry in June after 21 years, is equally looking forward to heading down to Glasgow.

She said: “This is a first time for me into the food and drink industry, but I like it so far.

“Business is going really well so far but getting the chance to go down to Glasgow for the Good Food Show is …read more
