Eclipse Launch FLEX Broadband

Posted: 01st Jun, 2004 By: MarkJ
UK ISP Eclipse Internet has announced the introduction of FLEX Broadband, which is the providers answer to BT's new capacity based charging system. In other words, the price can change depending on your usage:

Eclipse Internet shakes up the broadband market with the introduction of its revolutionary FLEX Broadband

Award-winning, innovative broadband provider Eclipse Internet is the first to offer totally flexible broadband with its new FLEX Broadband range. The products include a new 250kbps service (specifically aimed at customers with lower usage requirements) and are designed to make faster broadband affordable for all by empowering users with maximum flexibility to customise their connection speeds and match their requirements at all times.

FLEX Broadband uniquely allows users to change the speed of their connection at the touch of a button - for, an hour, a week or permanently, without any regrading fee, thus enabling them to adjust their connection to evolve as their needs change and expand.

Jomie Carmichael, co-founder and director of Eclipse Internet, winner of the ISPAs Best Business Broadband Provider award in 2003, said of the new products, "Recent months have seen a plethora of new services launched from competitors in an effort to drive down the cost and increase take-up of broadband. Disappointingly, this has resulted in a worrying trend towards restrictive services that penalise end-users for high usage.

Eclipse believes that Broadband is not about restricting or constraining users - it's about having freedom to explore, discover and experience the Internet at faster, and faster speeds. We feel that FLEX Broadband will revolutionise the market and help achieve the Government's vision of a "Broadband Britain"
'.

The FLEX Broadband range gives users the freedom to set the speed of their connection to suit their needs - slower for email downloads and faster for large file downloads, such as music and video. New broadband users migrating from slow dial-up services can start with the new FLEX 250 service and then move to a higher speed as their requirements change - without the additional cost of regrading or changing service provider.

Carmichael added: "FLEX Broadband is revolutionary, offering instant connection speed increases up to 2Mbps at the touch of a button, for as little or as long as the user needs it them. Everyone at Eclipse Internet is extremely excited about the new FLEX services and the direction the company is taking."

Flexing speed couldn't be easier. Customers simply visit http://www.eclipsebroadband.com and select the speed they require. The cost is as little as 4 pence per hour for a speed increase with no regrading charge (normally £35). When users no longer require the faster connection they can easily reduce their speed to a lower level.

The flexibility of FLEX Broadband means that all users - both business and consumer - can 'tune' their connection speed to suit individual tasks. Unlike products from many other ISPs, FLEX Broadband has no restrictions or hidden charges on download capacity.

Hopefully new broadband subscribers don’t get too confused by all these new services; the market really is beginning to look like an incredibly muddled mess, especially if you’re new to the net.
