'Not quick telecom buck'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

ClaraNET has slashed the cost of its off-peak unmetered Net access service.

FreeTime Unlimited now offers toll-free off-peak (6pm - 2am weekday and all weekend) Net access for 9.99 (inc VAT) a month.

The service was on trial over the last three months at a budget-busting price of 49.99 for unmetered off-peak access. It's now at a similar price to other ISPs offering similar products.

While ClaraNET is keen to plug this price reduction, the new-look package does have a few strings attached. Users signing up to the package won't be able to indulge in multi-player online gaming or use IRC (chat).

Nick Wells, marketing manager at ClaraNET, said these restrictions might be lifted in the future, although he couldn't say when.

He also had a pop at those ISPs offering unmetered access as part of tie-in with a telco.

"Many of our customers join us because of slow access and poor and expensive support from some of the "free" content-driven ISP's.

"We want happy long-term customers, not a quick telecom buck," he said. ®
