Le Freeserve has at last confirmed that it is to change its name to Wanadoo.

As reported by The Register yesterday, the French-owned ISP has decided to ditch the Freeserve name that's been with us since 1998.

In a statement Wanadoo UK said it would inform its punters by email and letter telling them "the strengths of the Wanadoo brand and the benefits they can expect in terms of better value, a greater range of products and services and further improvements to service and reliability".

There will be no change to existing Freeserve email addresses. Well, for the time being at least.

The makeover will take place "before summer this year" but according to sources much of the work is to be completed throughout this month.

Be quick, mind, before it gets pulled. ®
