British ISP, Callnet plc, has been bought by E-Tel Ventures plc, Reg can reveal.

The deal was closed last night although financial details have not been disclosed.

No one at Callnet or UK-based E-Tel was available for comment by press time although it's understood that E-Tel is looking to merge Callnet's ISP with its own ASP services.

Last month Callnet called in administrators, BDO Stoy Hayward, to find a buyer for the ISP business.

Callnet's other significant interest - it's text-based information and email service for TVs - M@ilTV - had already be split from the company.

Callnet was one of the first companies to offer unmetered Net access in the UK. It ditched the service in August. ®
