Intel has held a secret meeting with the Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications (CUT), The Register can reveal. The meeting was held last Monday behind closed doors although no details about what was discussed have emerged. One explanation for Intel's interest in CUT might lie in the fact that the chipmaker is concerned that the continued high cost of Net access in Britain is stifling PC sales. No one from Intel was available for comment before press time. Many Net users will hope that Intel's interest in the pressure group will bring yet another corporate heavyweight to the ring willing to fight for cheaper Web access in Britain. Either way, the meeting is further proof of CUT's growing stature as an Internet lobby group and its importance as a powerful voice among the British Net community. In June AOL UK confirmed it had held meetings with CUT and had secured corporate membership. AOL UK also backed a Europe-wide strike by Net users and organised by CUT calling for the introduction of flat-fee or unmetered access to the Internet. A spokesman for CUT refused to confirm or deny the story. ® Daily net finance news from The Register
