PlusNet, the Sheffield-based subsidiary of the U.S. company Insight Enterprises, has launched a new portal under the F9 consumer brand, while also releasing five new Internet services aimed at small- to medium-sized businesses.
The new portal features live news from the Press Association, together with other information that may be customised by the user.
The new products are Net Start low-cost access via ISDN; Net Web site development service; Net Pro routed Internet connectivity solution; Net Solution plug-and-play connectivity package; and Net Complete, a fast path to the Internet over a leased line.
"We believe that these products and services are superior to what is currently available to businesses in the UK, and that gives us a clear advantage against our competitors," said Paul Cusack, PlusNet's managing director.
Apart from its business products, PlusNet offers two types of Internet service for consumers. Free-Online is a free service that has no subscription charge, while F9 Premier has added features including limited 0800 Freephone Internet access for £9.99 ($16) a month.
"We're encouraged by the fact that the total number of our subscriber accounts has doubled to 200,000 since February, despite the ever-increasing competition for customers through subscription free services," added Cusack.
