Freedom2Surf Launches 8Mbps

Posted: 21st Jun, 2005 By: MarkJ
ISP Freedom2Surf has today announced the immediate launch of their 8Mbps broadband package and a future 24Mbps service. The new products are all based off EasyNet's unbundled wholesale broadband product, LLUStream:

Freedom2Surf is today launching its 8Mbit Connect Package which will be immediately available from just £14.99 a month. This new service will initially be available in 14 exchanges in major metropolitan areas, with the number of exchanges increasing to over 200 from end of July 2005 and nationwide by the end of the year. Customers on Freedom2Surf’s existing 2Mbit Connect Packages will be able to upgrade to the 8Mbit by paying a one-off £15 regrade fee depending on their local exchange capability.

Broadband at speeds of greater than 8Mbit will enable UK consumers to revolutionise the breadth and depth of services which they can receive through their Internet connection. As well as significantly faster downloads of music and video files, ultra-fast broadband will enable consumers to take advantage of Internet TV (IP-TV) services which are set to launch in the second half of the year.

Consumers will be able to access services allowing them to purchase films and music videos on a pay-per-play basis, with the potential to transform home entertainment. A number of content providers are expected to take advantage of ultra-fast broadband to challenge the dominance of players such as Sky, Telewest, NTL and Home Choice.

Chris Panayis, managing director of Freedom2Surf, commented: “Consumers across Europe and the US have long enjoyed ultra high-speed broadband and we are committed to leading the broadband speed revolution in the UK. The promise of Local Loop Unbundling is finally delivering, and consumers as a result will be able to enjoy 24Mbit broadband for the same price as many are paying for bog standard 1Mbit services.”

Chris Panayis continued: “We are expecting to see the launch of a number of new broadband-content services including Internet TV during 2005, and super-speed broadband will allow users to turn their Internet connection into a complete entertainment gateway for their home.”
