Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Bucks-based ISP, Nildram, has pulled out of trial for a new high-speed Internet satellite service in the UK.

Two weeks ago Nildram was among five ISPs named by BT to take part in the six-month trial.

The ISP was contacted by more than 300 people in two days who were interested in the service which is designed to appeal to small businesses and high-use home users.

But in an email sent out yesterday Nildram said it was pulling out of the trial due to "circumstances outside our control".

A spokesman for the company told The Register that it had decided to pull out because it had a "number of issues" with the high speed satellite service.

Although Nildram has pulled out of the trial it is still looking at satellite-based services to provide fast Net access and believes there is demand for such services in areas not served by cable or DSL.

PlusNet, Eclipse Internet, izR Solutions and KB Media are still involved in the trial. ®
