ADSL gets green light from Freeserve

Broadband service to go live in November

Freeserve is to begin trialling broadband ADSL technology in November, the company said today. It will provide the high speed Net access using BT's ADSL network although the exact details of the trial have not been disclosed. The ISP said the cost of the always-on service will be published on its Web site. No one from Freeserve was available for comment this morning, but in a prepared statement Freeserve chief executive John Pluthero said: "The trial of ADSL reinforces Freeserve's position at the forefront of Internet service provision. "ADSL will form an essential element of our broadband proposition and will enable us to extend and further develop services we offer our users in the future," he said. ®
