Easynet - one of the few companies involved in local loop unbundling (LLU) in the UK - claims broadband is proving popular with its customers and says that 2002 will prove to be an "excellent year".

Publishing a trading statement yesterday that company said that trading - including revenues and costs management - was in line with market expectations.

It has launched LLU services in London, Scotland, Bristol, Berkshire, Kent and Surrey.

Some 385 businesses now have unbundled services from Easynet. Include new orders and the total comes to more than 680 punters.
