Tiscali UK signs MESH pre-install deal

Closes office

Tiscali UK has signed a one-year distribution deal with MESH Computers to pre-install dial-up and broadband software on the PC-maker's machines.

The ISP claims the move - which is an exclusive deal with MESH - is yet another example of "Tiscali growing its stronghold in the UK market".

MESH flogs around 84,000 machines a year.

In January, Tiscali UK formally announced a similar distribution deal with Dell to pre-install its software on Dimension desktops and Inspiron laptops.

Elsewhere, Tiscali UK has finally shut down its office in Northwich, near Chester.

According to a Tiscali UK spokeswoman three people have taken redundancy while another three have taken up positions within the company.

Some 50 people worked at the Northwich branch when the ISP confirmed last summer that it was planning to shut down the branch. ®
