South Yorkshire ISP LittleBigOne (Digital Region) has announced that it will donate £10 to any one of four different local charities whenever a new customer subscribes to its superfast broadband (FTTC) packages before the end of 2013.
Apparently new customers will be able to nominate one of the charities (i.e. Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, SAFE@LAST, Barnsley Youth Choir or Aurora Wellbeing Centres) and in addition the ISP will also give £5 to charity for the first 100 local residents to get in touch that are unable to connect.
Teresa Robbins, MD of Littlebigone, said:
“littlebigone.com exists to give homes and businesses across South Yorkshire the choice of a superfast alternative to the telecommunications giants, which are years away from offering high-speed internet across the region. We have extended this philosophy of choice to our charity support and look forward to seeing our donations benefit a range of good causes in South Yorkshire.”
The fact that LBO has enough spare cash to do this suggests that at least one of Digital Region’s dedicated ISPs might at least be making some money, unlike the debt ridden network itself.
