Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

PIPEX, is slashing monthly fees for its home user ADSL service, Xtreme Solo, to a "cable-cutting" £24.95 ex VAT. So if you're not VAT-registered and working from home, it'll set you back £29.32.

And there are no connection charges for the first 40,000 people who sign up - last week, Pipex announced a £2m Broadband Development fund to subsidise home user connections.

The DSL modem is not included - Pipex is offering an Alcatel Speedtouch complete with two micro-filters for £99.95 ex-VAT. But all in all, it's still a bloody good deal. The veteran British ISP has stolen a march on its rivals, but if it's got its sums rights, other ISPs will quickly follow suit with cheaper prices. ®
