Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Supanet is launching its new broadband service tomorrow marking the ISP's first entry into the ADSL sector.

At £29.99 a month, supanet broadband is more expensive than many ISPs. However, as part of an introductory promo the ISP is throwing in a free HP 3325 printer and activation worth £65 for anyone who signs up to the service.

However, to take advantage of the promo punters must also buy the starter kit - which includes modem, filters etc - from Computer World stores which costs around £80.

The starter kits usually retail at £120.

Supanet is backing the launch with what it describes as a "substantial" marketing campaign.

Supanet is owned by PC outfit, Time Group, which is probably better known to consumers under the Time Computers and Tiny Computers brands.

Now that Time's ISP is offering broadband, it will be able to flog the service to all new and existing customers.

So, here's a PC outfit getting involved in flogging broadband. Coincidentally, earlier this week a broadband outfit announced it would start chucking out PCs.

BT reckons the move into the home computing market will help generate £150m by 2005.

By offering home users a range of broadband-ready HP and Toshiba PCs the telco hopes its BT Home Computing service will prove a winner with the punters.

Paying for the machines in instalments, repayments start at £35.99 a month for 36 months. At the end of the contract the punter gets to keep the PC. ®
