Pah!

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Britain's biggest French ISP is to ditch its unmetered Net access product, Freeserve Unlimited Time, in August despite giving assurances that it would not can the service.

In January Le Freeswerve announced it was offering a new unmetered service based on the wholesale unmetered Net access product, FRIACO.

At the time Le Freeswerve said it hoped its existing Freeserve Unlimited Time users would switch to the new AnyTime service but insisted no-one would be forced to swap tariffs.

However, Le Freeswerve has now changed its mind (like it never intended to ditch the loss-making Freeserve Unlimited Time product) and the service - supported by Energis Squared - will cease in August.

Existing Freeserve Unlimited Time users can either swap tariffs or sling their hooks.

Some 75,000 Freeserve Unlimited Time users are to be migrated to the FRIACO-based Freeserve AnyTime service. ®
