"We're very excited about launching this service and giving the people of South Yorkshire the opportunity to upgrade from the often poor internet connections that are experienced in the area. We are passionate about helping people get up to speed.
We are offering a very personal service and will give advice to anyone interested in getting set up online for the first time or improving the service they currently have."littlebigone.com MD Teresa Robbins
littlebigone.com is launching with a telephone and broadband package that will sell for £25 a month plus a £50 connection charge, or you can pay for the first 12 months upfront at £299 and after the 12 months continue to pay the standard £25 a month. The minimum contract period is 18 months, and their website has a registration page for those wanting to enquire about the service.
In December 2011 the service will also launch an IPTV (TV over broadband) service, and given that Digital Region is reporting average speeds measured as 37 Mbps down and 13 Mbps upload there would appear to be plenty of opportunities for quality TV delivery.
