Pipex woos BT broadband punters

Free migration promo

UK ISP Pipex has today cut the price of setting up its consumer ADSL services - and offered to pay the price of migrating from BT - in an attempt to woo more broadband punters onto its service.

Pipex currently has 60,000 ADSL subscribers.

For a limited time, new broadband users signing up with Pipex will be charged only £17.57 for line activation plus a free Alcatel SpeedTouch USB modem and two microfilters.

For those customers who already own their own equipment Pipex's Xtreme Solo2 Go Broadband service will be available with a free line conversion. Pipex will cover for the BT migration charge of existing broadband users moving onto its services, a fee which would normally set punters back £35 plus VAT (£41.13).

Ihe monthly subscription fee to the Pipex Xtreme Broadband service remains at £23.44. For more info check out Pipex here.

Pipex today also announced plans to beef up network capacity. The ISP has installed new termination and management equipment at its second dedicated broadband point of presence (POP) in central London. This "multi-million" pound investment will extend the capacity of Pipex's network to 3.5 Gbps, allowing it to support new customers more efficiently. ®
