Monster ISP Freeserve is to offer unmetered off-peak Net access from tomorrow.

The not-so-pithily-named service, Off Peak Freeserve Time, is based on BT's Surftime unmetered package.

The new service will be launched amid a blaze of publicity and hype with ads plastered over the national press.

The unmetered off-peak Net access package was due to be priced at 6.99 a month, although a spokesman for the ISP said today that the company now had second thoughts.

It appears the price is to be "revised competitively".

Freeserve didn't rule out that it might jump into bed with another telco following a ruling by Oftel that BT must offer its competitors unmetered access to its network. ®
