Watford to offer £5.99 pcm Net access

UK mail-order powerhouse Watford Electronics will next week stir up the UK ISP market by delivering a new service costing from £5.99 per month for unlimited Internet access.

The £5.99 price is available to users who sign up for two years but even the £6.99 and £7.99 prices available to one-year and six-month subscribers are lower than any other major service.

Watford said it is able to offer the low prices by reducing administration costs and by building up its own infrastructure based on Cisco routers and 56kbps modems, Microsoft Registration Server software and Compaq servers.

Watford also plans to launch a new Web site at www.watford.co.uk on September 22.
