Sonnet Internet targets the growing small business sector

Today sees the launch of a new product range from Sonnet Internet, part of
Affinity Internet, including a new portal providing small businesses with
direct access to a range of ISP services and business applications. The
service has been created to provide excellent value, Internet access and
essential online applications for small businesses with between one and
twenty employees.

Sonnet Internet delivers UK small businesses high quality, cost effective
alternatives to the limited ISP offerings currently available to small
businesses. Sonnet customers will enjoy greater flexibility of their ISP
service than ever before. For instance, customers wishing to self-manage
their service will be able to configure email, change usernames and
passwords as well as view payment details and access billing online.

Following research into the requirements of UK small businesses, Sonnet
Internet has incorporated the following value added services into its
offering: domain name registration, database and time management
applications, as well as the formation of news groups, the monitoring of
site performance and traffic, live news feeds, and online training.

In addition, Sonnet Internet has developed a range of quality Internet
access packages to suit various requirements. These access packages are
supported by a spectrum of focused applications and web self-care aimed to
greatly aid any small business online. The Sonnet product range includes:

* Solo Lite Daytime (£10 per month) and Solo Daytime (£15 per month):
uniquely gives you fixed cost access between 6am - 6pm. For the serious
business user who is reliant on Internet access during business hours.

* Just Dial (FREE) and Dial 4 Business (£10 per month): metered Internet
access at local call rates. For the occasional user.

* Solo Lite 24/7 (£15 per month) and Solo 24/7 (£25 per month): fixed cost
Internet access day and night. The perfect solution for businesses looking
for absolute flexibility.

* Symphony (£55 per month): gives several users 24/7 access. Ideal for
offices with a small network of PCs.

Danny Sullivan, director of Affinity Internet, commented: "The Small
Business market continues to show significant growth yet has been overlooked
for too long when it comes to unmetered ISP provision. Sonnet has been
designed purely for small businesses, as an alternative to straight consumer
packages that have been marketed to Small Businesses."
