5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Independent UK ISP Freedom2Surf has cut the ribbon on a new 8 meg ADSL package delivered courtesy of local loop unbundling (LLU) outfit EasyNet.

The service - "8Mbit Connect Package" - costs from just £14.99 a month (usage limits apply) although availability is restricted to a handful of telephone exchanges to start with.

Freedom2Surf also announced today that it also intends to make available "super-fast broadband services at speeds of up to 24Mbit".

Said Freedom2Surf MD Chris Panayis: "Consumers across Europe and the US have long enjoyed ultra high-speed broadband and we are committed to leading the broadband speed revolution in the UK.

"The promise of Local Loop Unbundling is finally delivering, and consumers as a result will be able to enjoy 24Mbit broadband for the same price as many are paying for bog standard 1Mbit services," he said.

In April EasyNet signed up Freedom2Surf as a customer of its new unbundled wholesale broadband service - LLUStream - which the telco claims is between 30-35 per cent cheaper than BT.

The 24 meg service in question has yet to be introduced by EasyNet although it is expected to become available later in the summer. ®
