5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Virgin.net - a joint venture between The Virgin Group and cableco NTL - has cut the cord on new broadband product.

Imaginatively called "Plan Two", the 512k package costs £17.99 a month with no 12 month contract and a three gig cap. For the curious among you, "Virgin.net Broadband 512K Plan One" comes with no 12 month contract, no cap and costs £24.99 a month.

Said Virgin.net's Peter Tuomey: "We now offer two different broadband options to reflect what broadband users want. Everyone wants a fast connection and both our options provide that.

"However, the majority of broadband users don't actually download vast amounts of data and they are more interested in high speeds at a lower monthly price. But, that said, if any Virgin.net Broadband customer finds that things change, they can switch freely between our 2 options without any ridiculous admin fees, penalties or other nonsense."

In December last year Virgin.net stopped accepting new broadband customers because its service was being strangled by a string of technical problems.

The decision to halt sign-ups for six weeks was part of a number of "precautionary" decisions the ISP took to resolve what it admitted was a "deterioration in service". ®
