Update: AltaVista and British ISP The Free Internet Group (FIG) are due to appear in the High Court on Friday to resume FIG's claim of alleged breach of contract.

The legal action dates back to early last year when FIG claims it had signed a deal to provide AltaVista UK with unmetered Net access.

FIG claims AltaVista pulled out of the deal days after the contract was inked.

AltaVista has always denied FIG's claim.

Reports last week claimed that AltaVista was prepared to settle its legal wrangle with FIG. However, a senior spokesman for AltaVista told The Register that the US dotcom was preparing to fight the case although would consider discussing a settlement.

No one from FIG was available for comment. ®
