Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Telinco -- the outfit behind the Sun's CurrantBun.com and TheMutual.net -- claims it is the first major subscription-free ISP to make a profit. With 600,000 registered customers and 78 subscription-free ISPs on its client list, Cheshire-based Telinco said its business has grown tenfold over the last year. Telinco said it retains around half of the all the money earned from the telephone call when a Net user goes on line. It has recently invested £10 million in its network infrastructure. Despite claiming success it did not divulge any numbers. No one from the company was available for comment today. ® Related Stories Daily net Finance News
