Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

You gotta hand it to BT - the telco certainly knows how to look on the bright side of life.

It launched SurfTime today even though most people in the industry know the discredited product is on a life support machine with the relatives hanging around waiting to flick the switch.

No matter. Check out it's Web page and it claims to have more than 20 ISPs signed up to the unmetered service.

But a closer look reveals that 19 of these are different branded ISPs backed by London-based ISP, Affinity Internet.

So in reality, BT has just four takers... Affinity, BT, Freeserve and PlusNet.

Oh, and one more thing. Anyone signing up to the service is committed for three months. By then, of course, there should be a number of rival services available which should be considerably cheaper than the BT option. ®
