BT bundles modems in ADSL campaign

All-in price

BT has confirmed that early adopters of its broadband technology will not have to pay for an ADSL modem on top of the monthly subscription. A spokesman said BT engineers would install the ADSL modems and that the cost would be inclusive in the tariff. ADSL users in other countries such as Canada have to buy their own ADSL modems separately to get online. Elsewhere, BT has apologised for a breach of confidentiality that affected 800 people taking part in its ADSL trial in London. The telco accidentally published the e-mail addresses when it issued an update on the trial. "We can only explain that the member of the helpdesk staff who sent the e-mail inadvertently clicked on 'Send to' instead of 'Blind Carbon Copy' and this is what caused this error," wrote Bill Bennett of the BT Interactive Helpdesk. ®
