THUS - the telco parent of Demon Internet - has run to Oftel whinging that BT is cross-subsidising its ADSL products.

It claims the wholesale cost of ADSL is more than BT charges its retail customers. Demon announced today its ADSL service would start at £49.99 - a tenner more than a similar offering from BT.

An unnamed spokesperson at THUS told the Sunday Telegraph: "We have our expressed concern to Oftel over BT's stance. It is clearly an issue that Oftel should be looking into and investigating further."

A spokeswoman at THUS confirmed that the telco had spoken to Oftel last week but denied they had "complained". Instead, she said THUS had "raised the issue". Nor would she expand on the accusation.

A spokesman for BT was dismissive of THUS' claim.

"It's utter rubbish," he said.
