Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Oldham-based ISP Gio Internet has joined the ever-growing number of broadband outfits to offer promos for its broadband service.

It's cut the cost of its ADSL broadband package from £24.95 a month to £17.99 a month.

The offer runs until the end of 2002 and anyone taking up the offer during this time will be charged at the lower rate even when the promo expires.

Gio Internet reckons this offer makes it the cheapest UK provider of ADSL broadband for business and home users. In the last day or so some 100 people have signed up for the service no doubt delighted that they might just have bagged themselves a bargain.

Elsewhere, Bucks-based Nildram has cut the cost of its Home 500 service by £6 a month to £29.99. Nildram, which was recently ranked the UK's speediest ADSL ISP, is also offering a tariff that includes free activation - a saving of £50.

Home500 Free Start - which includes a static IP address, a POP3 mailbox, a sub-domain and 100MB of personal webspace - costs £35.99 a month and is subject to a minimum 12 month contract.
