Today saw the announcement of the UK's first 24MBit broadband service from a new broadband provider, Be Unlimited
Not only that, it seems that the new ISP has thrown down the price gauntlet on other high speed internet service providers such as UK Online and Bulldog Broadband, which we are expecting to launch their own 24MBit broadband services soon.
The Be 24MBit service will only be available in London for the time being, but it is priced at a hard to believe £24 a month - £5.99 less than UK Online's current 8MBit service.
According to ZDNet
, UK Online was not willing to comment on whether it would be competing in terms of price. The spokesperson only stated that the service would be priced under £30.
There is no firm date set for UK Online rolling out its own 24Mbps service, but we understand that the company is planning for an October release.
