Mobile application security vulnerability report

Telewest has shot itself in the foot by publishing details of its broadband service on its Web site ahead of next week's official launch. Details of the hush-hush service were supposed to be kept under wraps until then although a source within Telewest had suggested earlier this month that an announcement was imminent. The only thing that appears not to be known is the new brand name for the service. Telewest's Hi-Speed Internet (HSI) service will cost £50 per month for unmetered access, including the rental of the modem. There's no line rental, no call charges and no ISP subscription on top. The cableco will charge a one-off installation fee of £50 and punters will also need to buy a Network Interface Card, which should cost between £45 and £95, depending on NIC card (Ethernet Card) specifications. Telewest's HSI service will offer optimum download speeds of up to 512Kbps and upload speeds of up to 128Kbps. In February Telewest began offering unlimited narrowband access to the Net for just £10 a month. Due to the problems that has plagued the service Telewest is offering £10 refunds to its SurfUnlimited users.
