BTopenworld cuts prices for the wireless home
DSL + 802.11b for less bucks
BTopenworld has cut the price of its wireless LAN bundle by 10 per cent-ish for residential and small office broadband subscribers.
The Linksys/BTopenworld co-branded wireless offerings consist of a wireless network laptop card, wireless network USB desktop adapter and a wireless network access point.
The products are offered individually, and in packages such as a Wireless Network Starter Pack (for peer-to-peer connections) which consists of a mix of any two wireless USB adapter or wireless laptop cards for £146.38 (excluding VAT). Prices used to start at £157.45.
The Wireless Network System Package adds a 802.11b certified Wireless Network Access Point with the wireless adapters and cards and costs £288.51 (excluding VAT). It is designed to connect up to four computers.
The system package, designed with small business in mind, and used to cost £297.02, comes bundled with an external DSL Ethernet modem-router.
By adding any "mix" of extra USB desktop Adapters and Laptop Cards to the System Package, it is possible to network up to 15 computers.
