Eclipse Launch Customer-Controlled Broadband Packages

Posted: 13th May, 2008 By: MarkJ
UK ISP Eclipse Internet (KCOM) has today launched a new range of broadband services that can be tailored by customers to suit their individual online needs. Subscribers will be able to use the ISPs control panel to select how much traffic priority to give web browsing, email, peer-to-peer (p2p), FTP, VPN and gaming.

The new flexibility is being introduced to both business and consumer services, with prices starting from £16.95 and £9.95 (special offer for the first three months, £13.95 thereafter) per month respectively:

Mark Thomas, Head of Sales and Marketing at Eclipse, said: “We believe these services will provide our customers with an unparalleled online experience. For the first time, broadband users will be able to customise their service to suit their usage – so home workers can optimise their broadband to achieve the best possible connection to their company VPN, for example, while online gamers can prioritise gaming over other applications.

The inclusive usage limits mean customers pay only for what they use, which also allows us to offer much faster broadband than is achievable with unlimited services.

In developing these services we’ve taken account of customer feedback and general online trends, so we’re anticipating a very positive response from the market.
”
