Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

In a week when ISPs have fallen over themselves to offer flat-fee unmetered access to the Net, one company now claims it wants to pay people to use its service. Supanet -- a subsidiary of Time Computers -- said today it was setting up a trial to examine how people would use the Net if given low-cost unlimited access. One thousand people in Britain are needed for the trial and supanet is also offering £10 to everyone taking part as an added incentive. Alan Randall, director of marketing, said: "We anticipate that many ISPs will not have fully planned for the surge of demand that these offers will create. "Our research will be the first UK study into unmetered Internet access, and will help us to understand the volumes, peaks and destinations that will be the inevitable result of the new internet landscape," he said. If successful, Supanet intends to expand the trial into a fully-fledged service. Net users can register for the trial from Monday at Supafree.com. ®
