Telewest, Britain's second biggest cableco, has finally launched its new broadband service, details of which were unintentionally leaked last week. The only thing Telewest managed to keep under wraps was the name of the new service: "Blueyonder". So, now you know. Blueyonder is set to offer unmetered access to broadband services from £50 a month including a host of multimedia services such as live video, online betting and video advertising. Nice. Telewest CE Tony Illsley said: "Blueyonder today is what a lot of us thought the Internet would be until we tried it. "Progressively, it will deliver broadband interactive services from personal and property security, to on-line medical diagnosis and treatment, to entertainment, culture and information of virtually limitless nature - all interactively and with extraordinary graphic and dynamic quality. "At £50 per month, this is a premium service; but one that will offer exceptional value to serious Internet users, home workers, professional people and others." Telewest claims to have invested almost £4 billion to create the UK's "most extensive cable network and one of the world's best broadband digital platforms". "That gives us the ability to do things others simply cannot," claimed Illsley. A spokesman for Telewest said Blueyonder would not suffer the same network problems that have plagued SurfUnlimited. "It's on a completely different network," he said, "and we've got bandwidth coming out of our ears." ® Related Stories Telewest leaks broadband service - by mistake Refunds for SurfVeryLimited customers
