Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

BT is to up the price of its SurfTime Internet access products for its one million punters from July 1.

The monster telco BT claims the price rises - the first since it launched the service in June 2000 - are necessary to maintain its service and to cover increased costs.

Evening & Weekend customers will be told about the price increase via the BT Update publication, which is included with people's bill.

SurfTime Anytime customers will be told about the changes by letter.

Oftel and SurfTime-compatible ISPs have already been told of the price rises, although one ISP told The Register privately that they were surprised by the price rises.

From the 1st July 2002, the price of BT's SurfTime Evening & Weekend will increase from £5.99 to £7.00 and SurfTime Anytime jumps from £19.99 to £25.00. ®
