Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Zetnet - which calls itself one of the longest established business-to-business ISPs in the UK - is now entering the domestic broadband market.

The ISP - which has 60,000 customers - said improved service levels from BT had prompted it to make the move into providing a broadband service for consumers.

As part of a promo offer running until the end of March punters will get a free modem worth around £80.

The up-front charge is £129 (plus £10 p&p), but that includes the cost of activating the service, two micro switches and three months' subscription to Zetnet's ADSL service.

After that, the service costs £29.33 a month.

Tim Cole, Zetnet Technical director said: "We came into the broadband market fairly late because we were not happy with the service levels that the end user was experiencing."

Now it reckons things have improved enough for it to get its toes wet.

Elsewhere, research from Eclipse Internet found that businesses would prefer a DSL, satellite or fixed wireless broadband service rather than a leased line.

It quizzed 100 IT managers at businesses with a turnover of at least £50m and found that while three quarters had a leased line, none planned to install further leased lines for their broadband connections. ®
