A recent survey carried out by Warrington-based Internet service provider U-Net, has shown that students are delaying their use of the Internet because of the perceived cost.
But the report was carried out prior to the company securing a deal with Janet and SuperJanet giving students access to the Internet for less than u1.80/month.
Bill Unsworth, the U-Net's director, said: "We've already seen a massive boost since the launch of the new student service." U-Net's survey shows that over 40% of students interviewed said they owned a computer, but less than 25% of them were connected to the Internet.
The Janet dial-up service is now being used in over 200 universities throughout the country.
