5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Video Networks is doubling speeds for its HomeChoice service up to a maximum of 4Mb at no extra cost.

The broadband entertainment outfit sells video-on-demand (VOD), home phone and net access through digital TV, using local loop unbundling (LLU) to deliver the service. Video Networks has installed kit in BT exchanges and and is capable of piping broadband direct to 1.4m homes across London and Stevenage. It declines to reveal subscriber numbers.

Video Networks boss Roger Lynch said the speed hike shows "the strength of our network and our commitment to the internet market in addition to our digital TV, video-on-demand and telephony services." ®
