Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Onyx Internet has become the first ISP to sign up to a wholesale broadband service from unbundling outfit Easynet.

Last week, Easynet announced it would be providing wholesale broadband to telcos and ISPs at prices it claims are 30-35 per cent cheaper than those offered by BT.

Using its own kit installed in BT exchanges, Easynet is offering operators the chance to provide unbundled services direct to end users via its new LLUStream product.

Yesterday, Mddlesbrough-based ISP Onyx became EasyNet's first LLUStream punter. Business ISP Onyx will use LLUStream to roll out "innovative, differentiated high-bandwidth services to its customers in the North East of England and Scotland", said the company in a press statement.

Said Easynet Business Development Director Justin Fielder: "LLUStream means that ISPs, carriers and system integrators can finally offer their customers innovative LLU services provided by someone other than BT. It gives organisations access to a unique portfolio of great value, incredibly fast connectivity speeds and stringent SLAs [service level agreements]."

Elsewhere, Nildram has unveiled a voice service that bolts on to its broadband service. HomeTalk costs £4.99 a month and gives users up to 50 hours of free UK landline calls. It also offers low cost calls to mobile, international and 0845 numbers apparently.

Said Nildram MD Sean Stephenson: "The key benefits with HomeTalk are price and simplicity, as well as the convenience of a combined voice and broadband solution. Customers don't even need to dial a special number, or fit a dialling box to access the new service - all you have to do is talk." Sheesh. ®
