Breathe rescues some Biscit customers

V21 punters get saved

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Internet Service Provider Breathe is taking over V21 customers from crashed ISP Biscit.

Originally Breathe was going to pick up all of London-based Biscit's customers but legal disputes put the kybosh on that deal.

Breathe has done a deal with EurISP and will now migrate the V21 punters onto its network. About 1,500 customers will be pleased to get back online.

Breathe will give them a few days grace after which they can either sign up to one of Breathe's packages or get a MAC number to help them migrate quickly and easily to another provider.

Breathe launched with much fanfare in 1999 before an "internet access for life" offer led to its temporary closure and subsequent rebirth.

BT launched its own liferaft for Biscit customers last week.®
