Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

An independent computer trade association has launched a subscription-free Net access service it claims has a wideband link to the Web 19 times greater than FreeServe and other similar ISPs. The National Association of Specialist Computer Retailers (NASCR) claims its service will give Net users "one of the best rides ever" and won't be hampered by bottlenecks and other network delays. "This means our customers will be able to get to the sites they want and download data much more quickly without the kind of delays experienced elsewhere," said Bob Ide, technical director of NASCR. "NASCR.NET has been carefully designed by people in the trade who understand the problems faced by Internet users," he said. The service will be launched officially this Sunday at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham. Free software will be available at NASCR retailers throughout the country from next Monday. ®
