Be's Lite 24Mb £14 Package Goes Live

Posted: 16th Jan, 2006 By: MarkJ
Much as previously reported, 'Be' has finalised its new 'Lite' 24Mbps broadband ADSL2+ package and launched it for a mere £14 per month (+£24 connection). The service suffers due to an initial 1GB data allowance, although additional 1GB blocks cost just £1:

Be lite is aimed at light home users, but is not light on features. In addition to staggeringly fast download speeds of up to 24 megs, Be lite members will also benefit from 24/7 member support hotlines and a free Be Box wireless modem (worth in excess of £100).

Be lite offers members the benefits of Be’s ludicrously fast broadband products – using the latest ADSL2+ technology – at a very low entry cost combined with the flexibility of pay-as-you-go Be broadband. When the initial usage allowance of 1 gig is exceeded, Be lite members’ usage is automatically topped up at a very reasonable cost of £1 per gig (bought in 5 gig bundles).

“Be lite will allow even more people to have access to faster broadband, which we believe will make a real difference to members’ lives,” said Dana Pressman Managing Director of Be. “With Be’s products, members will be able to enjoy a world of online possibilities from Voice over IP to High Definition TV, to name but a few.”

Be are pushing the boundaries of broadband in the UK and leaving the rest of the market behind with aggressive plans to make ADSL2+ a mass market product. Following successful trials the team has increased the size of their customer support team and customer orders are on average delivered within ten working days.

To join the broadband revolution, customers simply need a BT telephone line that is connected to an exchange in which Be has installed their equipment. The Be lite broadband service costs just £14 per month, plus a £24 connection fee, and includes a free wireless Be Box modem.


No doubt this new service will be very attractive to those on a budget; although it would have been better supplied with a slightly larger initial cap (1GB is far too low for such a fast service).

Similarly talk of High-Definition TV and VoIP services alongside a 'Lite' service isn't terribly appropriate, such a package is designed for minimal usage tasks and not the opposite.
