Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Modern urbanist ISP Breathe.net could be about to draw its last breath after it called in the administrators this morning.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers was appointed at the High Court in Manchester.

No one at Breathe was available for comment today. Management decided to hide behind receptionists in a bid to avoid explaining why the trendy ISP has fallen off its microscooter.

However, according to sources, it's "business as usual" - for the time being at least.

Last week it was reported that Breathe was seeking a rescue buyer, in a "last ditch effort to find fresh funds".

This was on the back of Breathe's decision to shut down its £50 for a lifetime of flat-rate unmetered Net access service after it found it simply wasn't economically viable to keep it going.

The chance of punters getting a refund remains very slim.

In July Breathe booted 500 users, alleging they "abused" the service. ®
