Online Backup Launched by British Telecom

Posted: Friday 8th February 2013

It’s no secret that online backup prices have been consistently dropping over the past two years, so much so that the service, which was once considered a luxury only corporations and enterprises could afford, is now something everyday businesses and personal users can adopt cheaply.

However, it’s not just the plummeting prices which have kept this service expanding, finding its way onto personal computers, notebooks, tablets and smartphones—if it were, it would have died out not long after its inception!

In addition to the big players of the industry—such as Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, SkyDrive and MyPC Backup—there is a new provider who has entered the field this month.

The online backup service has been launched by internet service provider British Telecom (BT). The service will be linked to their broadband, with each client’s storage capacity variable depending on which internet package they are set up with. Two different plans will be available of 2GB and 50GB storage. A disclaimer has been released from the company stating that activities which infringe upon copyright laws won’t be supported.

Users will be able to set up their account by downloading the application, which is available for iOS and Android platforms, and activating their account by following the on-screen directions. Options such as automatic backup of content from tablets, PCs and smartphones will be included.

Both the online backup Android and iOS-based applications can be found in the Google Play and iTunes Stores.
