More UK telcos deny toll-free access – so who is it?
Call us -- the phone bill's getting really aggravating...
Cable and Wireless and NTL have joined BT in denying they have plans to offer unlimited toll-free access to the Internet within the next three months. Yesterday, Tory MP Ian Bruce said that telcos were working on a service that would give phone users access to a single toll-free number of their choice -- a move that would provide unmetered access to the Internet for millions of people in the UK (see earlier story). So far, nobody wants to own up to it. So instead of the The Register running up a massive phone bill trying to find out, would the telco about to offer such a service please put their hands up and admit to what's going on. Is that too much to ask? ®
