Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

IC24 - bloody 'ell, there's a blast from the past - has launched a limited unmetered service aimed at people who want weekday Net access during working hours.

Specifically, the service provides Net access Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm and costs £8.99 a month.

People accessing the Net outside these hours will be charged on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Right from the outset IC24 - which has around 150,000 active users - says it will disconnect users after two hours active use - and if the line remains inactive for ten minutes - in a bid to stamp out service abuse.

It seems it's able to offer this new product because it has excess capacity during the day, since most of its customers log on during evenings and weekends.

IC24 has made it clear, though, that once day-time demand balances up excess capacity, it will refuse to sign up any new punters.

IC24 is owned by Brightview, a privately owned UK company created in April 2001 that has created a stable of ISPs including ic24.net, madasafish.com (so that's who bought it), jings.com, totalserve.com, callnetuk.com and totalise.com.

Brightview bought IC24 from Trinity Mirror around a year ago for £4.5 million. ®
