iomart to acquire controlling interest in Ezee DSL Ltd
The acquisitions and mergers continue with the London Stock Exchange carrying the news that the iomart group is to acquire a 51% stake in Ezee DSL Limited for £4.8 million in cash.
Ezee DSL Ltd, as part of this deal, are to be renamed Easyspace Datacentres Ltd. Ezee DSL is currently owned by 186k who has over 14,000 broadband subscribers trading under names such as 186k, Elite Internet Services, Mailbox Internet and EFH Broadband.
Since no mention is made of the future for the broadband subscribers, we presume that service and payments will continue as normal. It was back in 2002 that iomart sold its original broadband customer base of 2750 customers for £2 million to Centrica.
