BT's Bonfield: No free local calls

Net users need a range of tariffs, it seems

BT's CEO, Sir Peter Bonfield, today ruled out any plans to introduce "free" local calls in Britain saying that "there's no such thing as a free lunch". Interviewed on BBC TV this morning, he said BT wanted to create a range of different pricing models to suit the needs of different Net users. His comments came on the day BT announced its Q2 earnings. For the three months to end-September the group made pre-tax profits of £890 million, compared to £1.878 billion last year. ®
