186K swallows EFH broadband

Aggressive manoeuvres in the dark

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Aggressive Leeds-based business ISP 186K has bought up EFH broadband. The EFH brand will now become the main focus of 186K's consumer operaton.

Financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed. 186K says service will be undisrupted as EFH customers join its network.

186K will be familiar to Register readers as the firm which somehow pounces when wholesaler NetServices has a tiff with one of its resellers and says it is unable to provide migration codes.

Most recently 186K was a beneficiary of the dispute between NetServices and Biscit, a fellow mid-level rival provider which is also hungry to assimilate smaller players.

The move highlights the rapid consolidation which has occurred amongst ISPs this year, and is expected to continue in 2007 as prices continue to fall. ®
