Customers on the move now have access to a range of WAP content through Demon, the Internet brand of Thus. The new service, Demon Now, is a product of the Thus link with Nokia earlier this year.
“Our emphasis is on providing specific, focused services, such as access to e-mails, or finding the football score when out shopping on a Saturday,” said Cynthia Gordon, brand marketing director at Thus.
In the initial phase, customers will be able to use a service to read and reply to e-mails and access content from their mobile phones, via WAP. The e-mails will also be sent to customers’ PCs remotely from their existing Demon account.
Thus offers a variety of Internet services, mainly under the Demon brand in the UK and in the Netherlands. Demon is one of the UK’s leading Internet Service Providers, offering subscription dial-up services and business access services, including web hosting, web design, leased line and e-commerce facilities, wholesale Internet services and non-subscription Internet access.
Demon was recently rated as one of the top three world-wide ISPs by Internet Magazine, and recent research by Blauw found Demon NL to be the best valued provider in the Netherlands.
Most recently, Demon has become the UK’s number 1 audio/video-streaming site, through the popularity of the Big Brother web site, with most users using Demon to access the live netcast.
Thus offers a wide range of data and telecommunication services, primarily to the UK business market, including direct and indirect switched, freephone, premium rate and other number translation services. The company provides non-switched products including capacity, leased line and managed data services. It is also a provider in the call centre services market delivering telemarketing, call centre integration, fulfilment, consulting and disaster recovery services on a fully outsourced basis.
