AOL UK ups subscription costs

Follows in Freeserve's footsteps

AOL UK is to up the price of its flat rate subscription service by £1 a month.

From May 2 the cost of the unmetered dial-up service, "AOL Flat Rate", will rise from £14.99 to £15.99 a month.

The ISP claims the "modest increase" is a result of investment in its service and network.

This is the first price rise since AOL Flat Rate was introduced in September 2000.

It is writing to punters this week to tell them about the changes.

Last month the UK's largest ISP, Freeserve, announced that from April 5 the cost of its flat rate dial-up service is to increase buy £1 a month to £13.99. ®
