Tiscali UK joins millionaire broadband club

Presses on with LLU

Top three mobile application threats

Tiscali UK has joined the exclusive "millionaires" club after revealing that at the end of March it had more than 1.08m broadband users.

It joins NTL/Telewest, BT, and AOL as one of only a handful of ISPs to have notched up a million broadband subscribers in the UK.

Orange, the new name for Wanadoo and Freeserve before that, had 986,000 at the end of March.

Tiscali also announced it is continuing to invest in local loop unbundling (LLU) with an eye on providing services such as broadband TV, video on demand, and VoIP.

And it's also pushing ahead with plans to migrate users onto its unbundled service, announcing that "a significant migration of customers" kicked off this spring.

But a spokeswoman for the ISP declined to say how many of its million plus punters would be shunted to its LLU platform, saying the company did not want to reveal information that was commercially sensitive.

She added that Tiscali had not suffered any of the problems experienced by Wanadoo, where some punters migrated to its LLU network have been left without broadband for weeks on end.

In the three months to March Tiscali UK saw revenues increase 43 per cent to €100.4m compared to €70.4m during the same period last year. ®
