5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

British Web outfit, 24/7 Freecall, has teamed up with Telia to offer unlimited flat-fee Net access in the UK.

The British VISP will offer the service for £24.70 a month.

24/7 FreeCall makes no apologies for the cost of the service and claims that if people want a reliable service they must be prepared to pay for it.

Gary Allsopp, Chairman of 24-7 Freecall, said: "Our focus is on creating a tailored service for a limited number of people who are interested in new technologies and want the peace of mind of complete reliability.

"We are not the cheapest, however, as users of unmetered services are discovering, if an ISP is making a loss on free calls it will be unable to invest in an adequate technological infrastructure.

"Ultimately, you get what you pay for," he said.

The service provider said it will adopt the unmetered wholesale Net access product, FRIACO, when that becomes available.

Telia has invested more than £2 million in its Net access platform and 24/7 Freecall claims to offer one of Europes lowest contention ratios for an ISP.

This means that users will have "no difficulty in assessing the service even during busy times of the day", it boasts. We shall see. ®
