Demon looking for partners

UK ISP Demon Internet is looking for a friend as the battle for Internet access gets more bloody.

Since, its 1992 inception, London-based Demon has built a strong subscriber base estimated at over 100,000 users, but is under fire from new players with deeper pockets. Although it claims to have no plans to sell the firm, Demon is offering prospective partners stakes of up to 49 per cent, according to this morning's Financial Times.
