Ihug ditches Diamond, offers free AV service

One of the country's largest ISPs Ihug has reduced the price of its flat rate dial-up plan and re-launched it under a new name.

One of the country's largest ISPs, Ihug, has reduced the price of its flat rate dial-up plan and re-launched it under a new name.

The Diamond level plan will, from April, be known as Get All and will cost $27.95 a month, $2 cheaper than it is at the moment.

Get All customers will no longer receive $5 worth of toll calls free but will instead get Ihug's email anti-virus filtering service for free.

Ihug was one of the first ISPs to offer an anti-virus solution at the ISP's end rather than the user's end, however after Xtra, the largest ISP, launched its anti-virus solution as a free service, Ihug has been under some pressure to drop its $2.50 a month charge.

Ihug is undergoing a series of refinements to its business model following the appointment of Martin Wylie as CEO. Wylie has already ditched the ill-fated theGooey service (see Portal joint venture goes Gooey) after less than a year and has hinted at many more changes to come.
