Cable operator Telewest is to start offering unmetered access to the Net on Monday. Whether the Valentine's Day launch will be the beginning of a love affair between British Net users and Telewest remains to be seen. All in, it will cost users £29 a month to get unmetered 24/7 access to the Net. But that figure includes £9 phone line rental a month (which is cheaper than BT). Users must also agree to spend at least £10 of voice calls a month as well. The only other cost is £10 a month subscription to SurfUnlimited -- the unmetered Net access package from Telewest. The ISP is Cable Internet. "We think it will be phenomenal," said a spokesman for the company. "February 14th 2000 will be a landmark date for Internet users in the UK." Telewest also said it would launch its broadband service at the end of March, although details about the service have yet to be released. ® Related Story Telewest to offer unlimited Net access
