Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

AOL France has followed in the footsteps of its UK cousin and is offering unlimited unmetered Net access for E24 a month.

The service will be available to 100,000 subscribers to start with as AOL France seeks to manage the demands on its network.

It also has plans to make a similar service available in Germany.

AOL France announced its new offer yesterday claiming that it introduced the product in response to demands from Net users.

It also claims the move will help increase Net usage - a move seen as vital step in the march towards the take-up of broadband services.

AOL Time Warner's European Internet head, Michael Lynton, told Reuters that he still believes there is plenty of growth in the narrowband market even though many telcos and ISPs are pushing broadband. ®
