Telewest, the digital cableco that just can't seem to get it right, looks set to ditch its broadband service for a Dutch version from chello.

According to the FT, Telewest is to wave its blueyonder service into the... er... blue yonder, two months after launching the service.

The cableco took the usual dull and thoroughly unhelpful PR line this morning and refused to comment other than to say that that blueyonder was still being rolled out.

Reports over the last couple of days claim Telewest and chello are chatting about a joint venture here in Britain.

And it certainly makes sense. In March, chello held a flashy demonstration in London showing off its broadband service, even though the company didn't have a presence in Britain.

The broadband outfit made it clear then that it was looking to hold hands with operators in Britain to offer its own brand of broadband service. And now it appears that it is carrying out wishes, although it doesn't want to talk about it.

A rather stern spokeswoman at chello said: "We're under strict instructions not to talk about it."

Chello recently announced that it had postponed its IPO until 8 June. ®
