Another ISP withdraws unmetered access


Internet Service Provider RedHotAnt closed down their unmetered services on Tuesday, blaming it on the recent fallout in the technology sector.

The Kent based ISP stated on their website that they had been searching for a buyer, but no companies were forthcoming in taking over the liabilities that were associated with them.

At the beginning of January, RedHotAnt did state that they would not be taking any new subscribers, however existing ones could continue using the service and blamed Friaco, the wholesale unmetered package from BT for the reason. Friaco is expected to be available across the country by the springtime and will allow ISP's to offer this service, however smaller ISP's state that this service is only suitable for larger providers.

It is becoming a too familiar picture with more ISP's pulling the plug on unmetered access, but not informing the consumer who are often left without even 24 hours notice. RedHotAnt clearly states that they are not in a financial position to offer refunds or compensation for lost service.
