MCom sniffs around Invisible Networks

'Need to look under the bonnet'

Mapesbury Communications Ltd (MCom) - which describes itself as a "neutral host broadband wireless internet access hotspots" - has tossed its hat into the ring as a potential buyer for Invisible Networks (IN).

Chairman Olivier Garrigue told The Register that he was interested in buying what was left of the wireless broadband company - subject to the usual checks.

"We're very serious about it. As long as the opportunity is there we will consider doing it. We're looking to see what's what but we need to look under the bonnet," he said.

Mr Garrigue has already contacted McTear Williams and Wood, the firm handling IN's sell-off, and is waiting to progress his interest further.

Yesterday, McTear Williams and Wood confirmed that some interest had been expressed in buying up the company.

Elsewhere, punters of IN have been told that they can expect to have the plug pulled on their services sometime today. ®
