About Pipex Broadband Provider
Pipex is a telecom service company that has earned a strong reputation for offering many cheap broadband and phone packages to its residential customers. Their broadband deals provide the customers with a choice to add Evening & Weekend calls or Anytime calls at affordable prices that make Pipex deals as class of their own. While keeping its main focus on cheap pricing and money value of its broadband packages, recently, Pipex has also made some changes on the base level to tailor them to suit the different needs of its customers.
By introducing download limits ranging between 2GB and 100GB, Pipex has been clearly targeting both light users and heavy users who have the freedom to choose the suitable package based on their needs and the budget.
Pipex , one of the oldest ISPs in the UK was formed in 1991 as a company that provides internet solutions to home users and businesses. After offering dial-up services in the early days, Pipex later stepped into UK broadband market and it also offers leased line and ADSL services to a number of its customers under its brand name.
In 2003, Pipex was acquired by GX Networks for a £55 million deal and was renamed as Pipex Communications. In August 2007, another major acquisition took place, when Tiscali, the Italian based broadband provider purchased the residential broadband and voice divisions of Pipex for £210 million. This helped Tiscali to become the fourth largest broadband provider in the UK.
Most Pipex customers get their services on BT lines (BT Wholesale). Pipex had been seen as slow in its unbundling process of exchanges. In the early 2007, it had unbundled exchanges of just over sixty and there are plans to unbundle around hundred more exchanges during this year.
