The launch, supported by Arsenal and England defender Lee Dixon (a major shareholder in NeonHippo, the company that provides 24-7 Freecall with the IT infrastructure for its ISP service), now gives consumers real choice in the home ISP market, offering an alternative to the likes of BT, AOL and Demon. “24-7Freecall is about opening up the Internet for all users,” explains Sal Abdin, 24-7Freecall’s Chief Executive Officer. “For just £14.99 a month, home users will get access to a whole new world of browsing on the Internet, free from the worry of large Internet phone bills, set-up fees and hidden costs. Internet users in the UK can get on-line when it’s convenient for them.” “I’m supporting 24-7 Freecall one hundred percent,” explains Lee Dixon, Arsenal and England footballing hero. “Sal and his team have put together an excellent package that offers home Internet users great value for money. The option to become your own ISP means you can earn money from signing up new members to the service. 24-7 Freecall will even help you create a website if you want to run a club or fan club and pull in loads of new members!” 24-7Freecall’s £14.99 unmetered service includes: § Unmetered Internet Access 24/7 Access the Internet 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
