Telewest to offer unlimited Net access

Only £10 per month, but you must be an existing customer

The UK's number two cable operator, Telewest, has announced it will offer unlimited Net access from just £10 per month. Only existing Telewest phone customers will be able to take advantage of the offer, the company said today. The new offering is scheduled to kick off on 14 February and will be called SurfUnlimited. Newswire service Bloomberg said Telewest customers using SurfUnlimited will have to agree to spend a minimum of £10 per month on Net access calls -– hardly a king's ransom. Although the new service will only apply to residential customers, Telewest said it has plans to roll out a package aimed at business customers in the first quarter of 2000. Telewest's key shareholders are Microsoft and Liberty Media, a division of AT&T. ®
