The essential guide to IT transformation

IC24 has yet to confirm whether it is to extend its offer of limited unmetered Net access beyond the end of January.

A notice on the ISP's site warns that the "offer closes January 31st 2001 - outside promotional hours calls will be charged at local rate".

This was confirmed by one of the 50p-a-minute help line representatives who said the offer was scheduled to end at the end of the month.

However, a spokeswoman for the ISP said the "offer" had been extended three times in the past. And although no decision had been made yet, there's no reason to suggest that IC24 won't extend the offer for a fourth time.

However, she did not know when the companyt would make the decision whether to continue with the offer. Or not, as the case may be.

Still, anyone contemplating signing up with the ISP should talk among themselves while Trinity Mirror - the owner of IC24 - makes up its mind. ®
