NTL is to launch two new ADSL products later this Summer, both of which are bundled with a phone service from the cableco. Documents seen by The Register confirm that the cable company is to move beyond its cable network to provide ADSL broadband to punters outside its franchise areas.

Its "ntl:freedom broadband" service will cost £27.99 a month for a 512k service and comes with 15 email accounts and 55MB of Web space. The package is wrapped up with NTL's "off-net" 321 phone tariff, whereby local and national calls cost 3p minute during the day, 2p a minute in the evenings and 1p a minute during weekends.

NTL is also to offer a "Broadband International" package for £29.99 a month. The package is the same as NTL's "Broadband" offer except that it includes the cableco's "International Call Plan" aimed at punters who make calls overseas.

In both cases, NTL is offering - to start off with at least - free connection and modem. The services are reportedly due to go live on 1 July and expand NTL's current "freedom" product range, which includes bundled dial-up Net access and telephony to punters outside NTL's cabled areas. ®
