5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

'Be' - the local loop unbundling (LLU) broadband ISP - goes live today offering net access of speed of up to 24 megs for £24 a month.

The service is available in parts of London where the LLU operator has already installed its kit in BT exchanges.

Be has trialled the service over the last couple of weeks and reports that its first user has experienced an average speed of 18.5 meg.

In a statement Be boss Dana Pressman said that the ISP was "simply better value than any other broadband service from any other provider".

Be costs £24 a month and also requires an upfront connection fee of £24. Pricing details and availability can be found on Be's web site BeThere.co.uk. ®
