BT Yahoo! Improves ISP Services

Posted: 21st Dec, 2004 By: MarkJ
BT Yahoo! has made a number of improvements to its range of additional services, such as an increase to e-mail storage size (100mb to 250mb) and removal of limits on its photo storage system:

Not only has the company upgraded storage facilities for mail, it’s also added a new search function, revamped its shopping site and launched a Classical Concert and a Christmas Classics music station on BT Yahoo!’s music service LAUNCH with its unique customised streaming radio service LAUNCHcast Plus. It’s also removing all limits on its photo storage and launched a new ‘software centre’ - all in time for Christmas.

BT Yahoo! Mail has increased its storage size for all additional family email accounts (sub-accounts) from 100MB to 250MB of storage (the equivalent of approximately 25,000 text based emails). This means that customers never have to worry about the number of emails they have in their inbox and follows the increase in storage for all their main accounts to 2GB last summer.

Account holders will also be able to search through their mails, thanks to a new functionality. The most complex of searches for lost emails will return results almost immediately and customers will be able to search by content, subject, senders and recipients. Their search terms will also be retained in the search box for easy refinement.

Mail isn’t the only product to get an upgrade. Photo storage had its limits removed on December 15th – meaning that customers can store as many photos as they want online, allowing friends and family to view them from anywhere – perfect for sharing your xmas photos.

BT Yahoo! Internet customers can also enjoy the Christmas Classics Music Station on LAUNCHcast Plus. Get in the festive mood with a selection of the tunes from the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick" to The Pogues' "Fairytale Of New York" with everyone from Ray Charles to Frank Sinatra pitching in along the way. For fans with classic taste there’s also a new classical concert station featuring Wagner, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Mozart, Holst, Elgar, Beethoven and many more.

Finally, customers are now able to download the latest BT Yahoo! Internet software from one central place – the BT Yahoo! Software Centre. With everything in one place, customers can just click on an icon and receive an automatic update telling them if they have the latest software or need to update it.

“This is just part of our continuous mission to update and enhance our customers’ broadband experience,” said Duncan Ingram at BT. “Broadband is about more than just speed, it’s also about value, whether it’s extra storage or relevant content. And of course it’s also about being practical and ensuring simplicity and ease of use. These improvements to the service meet all of the above.”
