PlusNet's broadband family just got bigger

Why put up with slow Internet access when you can get Broadband from £15.99 at PlusNet? No, that's not a misprint, and you're not seeing things, the popular broadband ISP today launches a new range of always-on accounts for the Home - all costing less than a fiver a week. Based on its highly successful recent product trial, dslConnect combines the convenience of broadband with the low cost normally associated with dial up net access.

PlusNet now offers three new additions to its broadband range, offering more choice than ever, and featuring the exclusive '4x faster than dial' 200kbps option:

dslConnect 3x faster (at 150k) £15.99 inc VAT
dslConnect 4x faster (at 200k) £16.99 inc VAT
dslConnect 5x faster (at 250k) £17.99 inc VAT

Having been available as a trial product for just 4 weeks, dslConnect has already proven popular with cost-conscious consumers looking for a low-cost alternative to dial access. Surf the web without the wait, enjoy convenient shopping, chat and play online games - all without clogging up your phone line.

PlusNet's dslConnect range includes a USB modem, 3-month's free anti-virus and spam filtering as well as unlimited email addresses. Not only is this amazing value, but, as an introductory offer, the set up fee has been slashed by over 50% to just £30.

PlusNet is expanding its range of broadband services, building value-added products on the back of Tiscali's extensive wholesale Datastream network:

"Our approach is to take the best in class wholesale access and deliver innovative new products for our customers. Launching consumer products based on DataStream allows us to offer our customers even more broadband choice. dslConnect represents great value for people who want the benefits of high-speed Internet access at the same price as they are currently paying for dial access, with the added benefit of the quality of support that PlusNet are well known for," says Marco Potesta, Commercial and Marketing Director at PlusNet.

A wealth of added-value services are included as standard with the dslConnect range, such as unlimited email addresses, website hosting and local-rate dial access backup. With support provided 24-hours a day at local call rate, it's no wonder that more and more people every day are choosing PlusNet Broadband.

Sean Flood, Sales & Commercial Director, Tiscali Business Services, says: "PlusNet is a great partner to work with because they are interested in creating new and unique broadband products using our DataStream wholesale access. PlusNet is an extremely dynamic and customer-centric organisation and these products will further cement their commitment to their customers, by offering more choice and the lowest cost of entry to the world of broadband."
