Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Tiny Online, the ISP and e-tailing arm of the PC manufacturer, is to offer flat-fee unmetered access to the Net. 24/7 access will cost less than £30 a month, and offpeak unmetered access will set users back less than £10, according to Colin Greene, GM of Tiny Online. He wouldn't say exactly how much it would cost or name the telco supporting the service -- however Tiny Online's offering sounds suspiciously like BT SurfTime. But he did say that the flat-fee unmetered service would be open to all Net users in Britain. The new service is due to be launched next month. Greene said: "Unmetered access will bring European Internet usage up to the level of the United States, but why do so many barriers have to be put up in the UK to confuse consumers?" "At Tiny Online, we will be doing this differently to our competitors, offering straight forward all-day or off-peak services to all our subscribers with a very clear pricing structure." Tiny Online's ISP is currently backed by Affinity Internet, which uses Cable & Wireless. Greene is currently in the US setting up a online PC sales operation for the American market. ®
