April 17th 2000, ten years ago, a small but dedicated team of Internet “surfers” who wanted to create an ISP that would fully meet the demands and requests of likeminded individuals across the UK finally took the plunge and turned what was then a part-time project, into a fast, friendly and reliable Internet Service Provider.
Over the years, Vispa has gone from strength to strength and gradually worked its way up the industry ladder, maintaining the very same vision that was had in April 2000, “to provide a full range of services at affordable and fair prices with no wish to be the biggest, but the best and nice people to do business with”.
James Ormerod, co-founder of Vispa, “Times have changed, technologies have come and gone, we’ve learnt from our experiences, and the internet is now some 900 times faster than a decade ago, but Vispa continues to re-invest, seek out new ways, and constantly aim to be one step ahead whilst continuing to support our extremely loyal customer base, some of whom have been with Vispa since the very beginning and they will be receiving a special treat!”.
Over the coming weeks, Vispa will be celebrating its 10th Birthday and as part of the celebrations, they are giving every one in ten new customers and existing customers who upgrade, the chance to win free service for a whole year!
The winners will automatically be selected and the promotion applies to any broadband or broadband & telephone line service, both home & business. We are also giving the first three month half price on all packages.
“Today also sees the launch of our new availability checker which features trueSpeed. Customers can test their line and be shown the exact “true” speed that their line will achieve and not an “up to” red herring.
Vispa is also the first UK ISP to remove from their website all references to broadband speeds (which most of us can’t have), and the term “up to”. We hope that other ISP’s will follow suit in the not too distant future.”
