BT is to go head-to-head with supporters of unmetered Net access tomorrow as part of a discussion forum set up by the telecomms watchdog Oftel. AOL UK, Freeserve, Energis and the Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications (CUT) are all lined up to take part in this exercise in jaw-jaw. The press, however, have not been asked to attend what could be a heated debate. A spokesperson for Oftel said the media had been barred because their attendance could stifle debate. Trying to be helpful, the Oftel lapdog said that journalists were perfectly free to get their information second-hand from those who attended, even though this defeats the object of barring the media in the first place. A spokeswoman for Oftel today apologised to The Register for giving misleading information about the event. It's not that the meeting is secret, it seems Oftel just doesn't want anyone to know about it. ®
