UK Online unveils 24 meg service

They're all at it now

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

UK Online - the ISP that's part of local loop unbundling (LLU) outfit EasyNet - has confirmed it too is to offer 24 meg broadband.

The ISP launched an 8 meg service ten months ago and is now planning to build on that with the release of a 24 meg product from next month.

Although prices have yet to be confirmed the company said the service would cost under £30 a month.

In a statement Chris Stening, top dog at UK Online, said: "We've been pushing the current ADSL technology to its limits with 8Mb broadband since late last year."

Today's anouncement follows hard on the heals of rival ISP "Be", which revealed yesterday that it is planning a pilot of its 24 meg service in the London area.

Bulldog - another LLU operator which has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons - is also telling its customers that it is planning to release a 20 meg service sometime soon. ®
