While Britain's ISPs appear to be climbing over themselves to ditch unmetered access, there's one, at least, which appears to think it's still a good idea.

Totalise wants to give users 100 hours a month of free Net time. In return, it wants punters to hand over £200 plus VAT.

In case that sound a bit steep it's sweetening the pill with £400 worth of shares - for free. Oh, and the deal does cover you for two years.

The Ultimate Surf has already been offered to Totalise's existing customers and a couple of hundred people have already taken the bait.

Tomorrow, the offer is being extended to non-Totalise subscribers. The service will be limited to 100,000 people.

Totalise’s CEO and founder Dr Peter Gregory, said: "Totalise has watched very closely the performance of other companies who have rushed in with unmetered access offers and how several have had to be withdrawn.

"We have taken the time to plan very carefully our offer which we consider to be sensible and sustainable. ®
