01.09.05 - UK DediServ Offer Radical Unmetered Server Pricing
After just over 3 months on trial, UK DediServ has today officially launched its new unmetered dedicated server range and now offer 10Mbps servers starting at just 75.00 per month! This pricing structure is believed to be one of the very cheapest in the UK and indeed the world.

UK DediServ had been trialling this new scheme since May, although the cheapest servers were 99.00 per month.

With most other competitors offering pricing starting at around 150 for similar servers, we firmly believe that this new pricing structure will for the first time ever, make unmetered servers available within the price range of the majority of people in the UK.
