IBM climbs into bed with NTT for Net bundle

It's in the lease

NTT, the Japanese telecoms giant, is launching a leasing business with IBM for online PCs. NTT will provide Web access for Y3980 ($37.50) per month in a bid to gain a larger slice of Japan's Internet market, according to today's Financial Times. The leasing rate will not include call charges, but will provide 100 hours of access per month. It compares to similar deals, which do not include PC rental, but charge from around Y2000 for 16 hours to Y3000 for 150 hours online. The service, due to be launched in co-operation with IBM, is aiming at netting 40,000 users by next April.®
