In a trial being held this weekend, U.K. voters for the first time will cast their ballots online. Voters in Sopwell and Verulam, two electoral wards in St. Albans, are taking part in the experiment during local elections. They will be able to vote online over the weekend even though the actual local election won't be held until May 2. In an attempt to prevent malpractice, every Sopwell and Verulam voter has been issued a unique "voter identification number" and will enter a personal identification number when placing their vote. The trial is an attempt to test ways of voting electronically. Public participation in the electoral process is perceived to be declining, and advocates believe Internet voting could encourage more people to take part in the democratic process. The St. Alban's project is funded by the Department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions, with the involvement of Oracle and British Telecommunications.

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 Clara.net, 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.
