BT Retail has joined Sheffield-based PlusNet in announcing that it will start trialling 8 Meg broadband service from April.

Last week BT Wholesale announced its plans to recruit up to 2,000 businesses and consumers in Strathclyde and Greater London to take part in the trial.

A spokeswoman for BT's Wholesale division declined to say which other ISPs would be trialling the faster speed service.

Elsewhere, ISP Madasafish is offering its punters a domain name - for free. The gratis .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk domain name comes with no registration or hosting fees, unlimited e-mail addresses a 20MB web site.

Meanwhile, Harrow-based MetroNet claims to have developed a "versatile web content filtering system" enabling its 14,000 broadband punters to blacklist and whitelist web sites, and block adverts. Which is nice. ®
