The X-Stream Network was the first free ISP based in Britain launched in 1998 and founded by Canadian businessmen Christopher Sukornyk and Gregory Sukornyk, founder of Project Breakout[1] and Wippit founder Paul Myers[2].

The company were the first to offer free internet from 1998 access and then "unmetered" access through 0800 numbers. Trial periods were set up mainly at evenings and weekends to allow 0800 access to the X-Stream network for 1 hour periods. This is the first instance of the development of "unmetered" access to the Internet in the UK.

The company subsequently expanded its operations to a number of other European countries and Japan. X-Stream was bought by the French ISP LibertySurf in March 2000 for $75.3MM.[3]
