Zetnet is offering customers a free ADSL modem router that incorporates Ethernet and USB — an £80 value — when they subscribe for £129 (£10 p&p). The deal runs through March 31, 2003.
Compatible with Mac OS, Linux and Windows, the router also includes a 2x phone splitter. The £129 package includes three months of Internet access through Zetnet’s “basic” ADSL account 5 e-mail accounts and 50MB of Web hosting space. After the three months, the service costs £29.33 per month.
Zetnet technical director Tim Cole said that despite his company’s history as one of the oldest independent UK Internet service providers, Zetnet is late to the broadband market because they wanted to research modems that were platform-agnostic; they were also unhappy with the service levels experienced by end users.
“The service level that BT now provides is a lot more stable and we feel confident that the service we can offer is more than competitive and we’ve endeavored to make it simple for the domestic broadband user,” said Cole.
More details, including a “Broadband Availability Checker” that figures out if your local phone exchange supports ADSL, is available from Zetnet’s Web site.
