Users Waste £1Bn On ISP Connections

Posted: 03rd Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
Pre-paid UK ISP Myinternetpass (aka - MIPCards) has today revealed that households could be wasting roughly £1Bn on connecting to the Internet each year:

Myinternetpass claims that each of the UK's 8.77m dial-up connected homes could be paying as much as £200 a year too much to get online.

The research, based on Oftel and Census statistics, claims that each connected dial-up home spends an average of 10 hours a week online, costing each home £217, or the nation £1.89bn a year.

Based on users switching to its own access charges, Myinternetpass calculates that households with pay-as-you-go packages could slash their bill by 300 per cent, to £78 from an average of £270. Households on unmetered packages would save £64 a year.

Interesting, although it's unclear whether MIP has considered all the various discounts or even if the original figure included existent unmetered connections? More @ Web-User.
