UK Online drops 8Mbps to £29.99
High speed broadband has just received a welcome boost in the UK, with UK Online lowering the price of its 8Mbps LLU service from £39.99 to £29.99. The £10 lowering in the monthly fee will apply to both new and existing subscribers. The existing free ADSL wireless modem router offer still applies as well.
We should point out, that since ADSL technology is distance dependent not all people on an exchange where the UK Online LLU service is available will get 8Mbps as their connection speed, the connection will be provided at the fastest stable speed. UK Online estimate that around 50% of lines should be able to get the full 8Mbps.
