Sheffield-based Internet Service Provider PlusNet has attracted more than 100,000 customers to its service since it started trading in 1997. Although the company claims to have increased its customer base by 1000 per cent last year, it believes it will double in size before the end of 1999. Around 60 per cent of PlusNet's customers use its subscription-free Net access service, Free-Online, which the company launched in October last year. The company also claims that it is still one of the only mainstream ISPs with its own subscription-free service that isn't sponsored by a third-party or affiliated to a telecoms company. "We attribute our rapid growth to the mass appeal of the Internet combined with the popularity of our main Internet servicesForce9 and Free Online," said MD Lee Strafford. US computer company Insight Enterprises acquired an 85 per cent stake in PlusNet in April last year. ®
