Build a business case: developing custom apps

AOL UK could be just weeks away from offering flat-fee unmetered Net access.

On Tuesday MCI Worldcom - which one of AOL UK's network vendors - became the first telco to sign up to BT's wholesale unmetered Net access product, FRIACO Hybrid.

Erol Ziya, of the lobby group, Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications (CUT), predicts that AOL UK will be offering a flat-fee unmetered service in as little as four weeks.

Matt Peacock, a spokesman for AOL UK was more circumspect.

Asked whether AOL UK was on the verge of offering an unmetered package, Peacock said: "We will have to see.

"We've asked for a price from MCI Worldcom but we have not got it yet," he said.

We can't make any decisions until we get a price, he said. ®
