BT plans UK-only Net access service

BT will next week kick off a new Internet access service targeting businesses without international requirements.

Called BTnet UK, the service will aim for companies that have high local traffic - typically on intranets - but don't want to pay for unused international access. The service will be boosted by introductory offers.

BT plans to detail the service at the Internet '97 show held September 23-25 in Birmingham.
