Internet Security Threat Report 2014

UK PC builder Viglen is to start an ISP next month through a deal with LineOne. From mid-April, all Viglen PCs will come pre-loaded with the VigOnline ISP. Users of the "free Internet service" will pay call charges but no monthly fee. The two are also developing a customised portal, giving Viglen customers access to more than a million LineOne pages of UK-based content. LineOne, owned by United News & Media and BT, has similar "mothering" deals with The Express, Dorling Kindersley, Sainsbury's and Psion, which it uses to boost membership and traffic. Bordan Tkachuk, CEO of London-based Viglen, said: "We expect this latest addition to the Viglen portfolio to be well received, particularly within the education market where there is a rapid adoption of Internet technologies." UK ISP LineOne has 850,000 users, and claims a current growth rate of 20,000 new members per week. It struck a deal earlier this month to offer toll free and subscription free Internet access through discount telco Quip! The service was due to go live today. ® Related Stories LineOne joins Free Everything gang LineOne users to get free phone calls Sugar steals Virgin's 'unrewarded entrepreneur'
