High performance access to file storage

breathe is bemused by weekend press reports that it's new owner, Great Universal Stores (GUS), is to shut down the ISP three months after buying it.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, GUS only wanted the modern urbanist ISP for its technology and has no interest in it as a service provider.

Indeed, when GUS bought breathe earlier this year for £1.4 million it said it wanted to get its hands on breathe's technology.

However, only last month it was reported that breathe intended to start offering flat-fee unmetered Net access breathe.

A spokeswoman for breathe said: "We know nothing about this or where the story has come from. As far as we're concerned it's business as usual." ®
