Genie, BT's mobile information portal, is to offer mobile phone users an unmetered internet access service for £20 a month.
Customers who buy a mobile phone online through the Genie portal will be offered a choice of tariffs which include unmetered Wap and/or text messaging as part of the monthly subscription.
"We're offering customers 'all you can eat' mobile internet access for just £20 a month. We're directly responding to the needs of the mobile generation who rely on the internet to manage their busy lives," said Kent Thexton, managing director at Genie.
The portal, which has over 1.4 million registrations in the UK, will also offer customers a £10 a month service to include a free unlimited short message service facility. A pre-pay option will be launched "shortly" and GPRS tariffs and handsets will be introduced at the start of next year.
