The essential guide to IT transformation

BT is in denial -- again -- after a spokesman said it had no plans to offer toll-free access to the Internet. That's two denials in three days on the same subject from the giant telco. However, the news ferrets at NTK think they know different. NTK says BT is to launch an unmetered ADSL service in September for around £30 a month. In its own words, NTK has blabbed about what is fast becoming one of the worst kept secrets in the industry. NTK was sworn to secrecy by a snout, but reckoned this oath was invalidatated by the intervention of MP Ian Bruce, who alluded to the deal in Parliament on Wednesday. Congrats to NTK for the scoop. Especially, if it's true. And yah booh sucks to BT. For at more than £360 a year, ADSL is not quite the answer to Net users' prayers. It may be toll-free, but that's one heck of a subscription for your average user.®
