Wandoo ups the Broadband ante

Wanadoo is the latest company to up the ante on the broadband from. The company that was formerly Freeserve has reduced the price of its 1Mbps line to just £17.99, a price, which it believes is the cheapest deal yet from a major service provider.

But before you all rush out and sign up to the new service there are limitations - mainly that there will be a cap of 2Gb a month after which the service will be limited to email only.

If this all sounds a bit on the stingy side users can opt to upgrade the account to two other 1Mbps: £22.99 per month with a 6Gb cap, or £27.99 a month with a 30Gb cap.

The Wanadoo offer will be available from Wednesday 25 August and has been timed to coincide with BT expanding the reach of the 1Mbps line across the UK
