BT sets pricing for broadband service

British Telecommunications said Wednesday that its cut-price broadband product will carry a monthly fee of $39 (27 pounds) per month. The BT Broadband service will give customers a high-speed Web connection but will not offer any of the additional services normally offered by Internet service providers. The service will go on sale in the fall after a summer trial period. Customers will also have to buy an ADSL modem, which will cost about $116. BT also said it has agreed to content deals with several organizations including, UKonline, MSN, Yahoo and Google. At $39 a month BT Broadband will be about $4 per month cheaper than broadband products from ISPs Freeserve and BTopenworld. However, it will still be more expensive than the high-speed Internet products that are available from some ISPs. For example, Pipex is charging around $34 per month for its broadband package. ZDNet U.K.'s Graeme Wearden reported from London. To read the full story, visit ZDNet U.K.
