But still manages to upset punters

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

BTinternet is to streamline the number of dial-up Net access products it offers.

At the end of March punters will have to wave goodbye to BTinternet's old evening and weekend credit card package which cost £9.99 per month and offered off peak unmetered access.

BT claims users will be better off using the packages. The rationalisation means that some 100,000 Net users who were using their credit cards to pay £9.99 a month for unmetered off peak Net access will now be transferred to BTinternet's Anytime flat-rate 24/7 unmetered access and charged via their phone bill.

However, the move has come at a price - and it's not just the fact that AnyTime costs £14.99 a month - £5 more that customer s are currently paying.

The new services are only available to users who have a BT phone line. This has angered some users who will now have to make additional arrangements for unmetered Net access.

According to BT, though, this will affect only around 5 per cent - or 5,000 - of those users.

For them, BT suggests they "register for BTinternet's Pay-as-you-go option". Charming. ®
