Broadband provider Bulldog Communications today launched an 8Mbps service which it claims will be available to almost a third of homes across the UK.
The local loop unbundling firm claimed that the offering is the UK's first 8Mbps service with no download caps and a selection of price plans.
New customers will be able to buy the 8Mbps service for the price of the current 4Mbps service, starting from £15.50 per month.
In a bid to tempt potential customers Bulldog said it would offer the first month's 8Mbps broadband service for only £1.
The offer, which includes a free modem, is for customers signing up by 15 June. Existing Bulldog customers will automatically get a free upgrade to 8Mbps.
