Build a business case: developing custom apps

Blimey, that didn't take long: Deutsche Telekom announced plans Friday to introduce unmetered Net access, just one day after it was told to by AOL Europe (see AOL demands flat fees for Germany). Ron Sommer, DT CEO, said ISP subsidiary T-Online would introduce unmetered Net access before summer for DM100 (£30) or less per month, AP reports. Mobilcom, Germany's third biggest telco, says it too will introduce flat fees, after building a huge fibre optic network across the country. The heat is now on AOL Europe: according to some of our German readers, AOL Europe has promised to introduce a DM50 flat-rate since last year. What will it do now? What's good for T-Online customers, is not necessarily good for other ISPs. AOL and others will no doubt pile on the political pressure to see Deutsche Telekom's interconnect fees reduced. ®
