Telewest intros 1Mb broadband service
'Viagra for your PC' - apparently
Telewest is to offer a 1Mb broadband service to its punters across the UK at a price that undercuts a similar product from cableco NTL.
The new service - introduced after a trial involving 1,500 people - costs £35 per month (when taken with other Telewest Broadband services) or £39.99 on its own.
NTL's 1Mb service - which was launched in March - costs £49.99 a month.
David Hobday, sales and marketing director of Telewest Broadband, described the service as being like "viagra for your PC, providing a mind-blowing Internet experience."
Some 169,000 people subscribe to Telewest's blueyonder broadband service. ®
