AOL UK Doubles Broadband Speeds

Posted: 07th Feb, 2005 By: MarkJ
UPDATE: We've included the official PR. Those checking AOL UK's website this morning can't have helped but notice that the provider appears to have doubled the speed on all its broadband packages. For example; 512Kbps is now 1Mbps for the same price (£24.99).

Silver - £17.99 for 512Kbps (was 256Kbps)
Gold - £24.99 for 1Mbps (was 512Kbps)
Platinum - £29.99 for 2Mbps (was 1Mbps)


The details were first leaked out on our forum over the weekend and it's not yet clear if this only applies to new customers. We would assume it applies to everybody.

It’s noted that the Dixon’s group will be replacing their CD distribution agreement with Wanadoo on 14th February and starting a new one with AOL UK. The new AOL CD’s have already started arriving and showcase the changes.

AOL today announced it is doubling broadband speeds for all AOL Broadband Silver, Gold and Platinum customers at no extra cost and will be launching AOL Broadband in all 1,100 Dixons Group UK stores for the first time on February 14.

At the same time, AOL becomes one of the first DSL broadband providers to launch an unlimited 2Mbps service. All AOL Broadband services include free modem and installation, access to an exclusive broadband content package and free customer service and technical support.

John Clare, Dixons Group Chief Executive, said: “We’re very excited to be partnering with AOL, an acknowledged worldwide leader in Internet services with a first class reputation. The new broadband deals on offer are the perfect companion for our state-of the-art range of PCs and laptops. Our customers will welcome the blistering speed of AOL Broadband, which offers an amazing range of content and services.”

From this week, AOL’s broadband offering for new customers will be as follows:

· AOL Broadband Silver - £17.99 a month for an unlimited service up to 512Kbps (previously 256Kbps)

· AOL Broadband Gold - £24.99 a month for an unlimited service up to 1Mbps (previously 512Kbps)

· AOL Broadband Platinum - £29.99 a month for an unlimited service up to 2Mbps (previously 1Mbps)

AOL will automatically upgrade broadband speeds for all existing customers as quickly as possible. The existing Platinum 2 trial 2Mbps service, at £34.99 per month, will now include free dial-up roaming access. AOL Broadband members on the ntl cable network will be upgraded to a 1Mbps service.

As part of the Dixons Group broadband roll-out, AOL is also launching a wireless home networking package in conjunction with hardware manufacturer NETGEAR. The ‘AOL and NETGEAR for Home Networking’ package enables users to access a broadband Internet connection on a computer and a range of home devices simultaneously, and makes setting up a home network easier and faster.
