UPC Business, the provider of high speed internet to businesses, has announced the launch of UPC’s Internet bundled with Microsoft Office 365 in five of its core European markets for small and medium sized businesses.

The launch of the high-speed broadband internet and voice bundled with Office 365 Cloud Service is the result of the strategic relationship between UPC and Microsoft Corp., which was announced in November last year.

Office 365 brings online versions of Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Lync together with Office 2010 software as a single cloud service.

UPC Business already provides cloud services such as Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, as well as Hosted PBX virtual Voice solutions. The internet service is now launched in Ireland, Switzerland and Austria. Poland and the Netherlands will follow after the summer and the remaining five markets where UPC Business is active later this year or early 2012.
