Wanadoo to offer eight megabits per second broadband service

In the UK, Wanadoo has announced that it is to begin providing an eight megabits per second (Mbps) broadband service. The company will join a number of other providers who are offering such high speeds. Initially available only to customers in areas where Wanadoo has taken over BT lines, the 8Mbps service should eventually be available to about half of the company’s customers.

From November new Wanadoo customers in areas where BT lines have been unbundled will be able to take up the 8Mbps service. Alongside the high-speed broadband will go free off-peak net calls for six months and a package of other services.

The package will cost £14.99 for only the first six months and £17.99 after that.
