New hybrid storage solutions

After months of speculation AOL UK has finally announced it is to offer flat-fee 24/7 unmetered access to the Net.

The new service - based on Flat Rate Internet Access Call Origination (FRIACO) - will cost just £14.99 a month and includes all subscription and Internet telephone costs, together with unlimited freephone member support.

In a bid to ensure that the service is not deluged with punters scrambling over themselves to get hooked up AOL Flat Rate will be rolled out to existing members first.

Those who have been with the service provider the longest have already received their invitation to join the new unmetered service.

In a statement AOL UK MD, Karen Thomson, said: "Our ground-breaking new unmetered price plan is a watershed event for consumers that will transform the interactive medium into a true mass-market phenomenon in the UK.

"We promised more than a year ago that we would fight to 'Stop The Clock' of metered Internet telephone costs charged by the minute

"AOL Flat Rate reflects a fair, responsible and realistic approach to unmetered access..." she said. ®
