Internet technology Group (ITG) has signed a $6 million deal with networking giant Cisco that should help it service more than two million Net users in the UK. The company claims that the expansion will make ITG one of the UK's largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with a total 33 points of presence (POPs) throughout the country -- more than any other provider. The deal follows yesterday's announcement that ITG is to focus on the wholesale supply of Internet services, including subscription-free services, enabling companies and organisations to offer customers branded Net access. The Ministry of Sound, the youth music movement popular for it's thumping bass beats, is the first such tie-up. Others include Micro Warehouse, one of the world's largest catalogue and online computer retailers, and NASCR, the National Association of Specialist Computer Retailers. "The market dynamics of this sector have changed radically," said Laurence Blackall, CEO of ITG. "We are entering an era in which major brands will dominate Internet access at the consumer level. ITG intends to be a major supplier to those brands," he said. ®
