Germany's Deutsche Telekom has launched its controversial Internet pricing plan, despite fierce opposition from rival operators.
Last week a German court upheld complaints from eight companies that the bundled Internet access and call charge was priced unfairly low and blocking competition. (see Newswire 15 March)
But from today, subscribers to Telekom's T-Online Internet access service will pay six pfennigs ($0.03) per minute for all inclusive Internet access - three for the phone call and three for the access.
Access to rival ISPs, such as AOL Germany, costs eight pfennigs per minute in phone charges alone.
The regulator earlier this week asked Telekom to breakdown the T-Online charge and said it would use the information to decide whether or not to formally investigate the operator.
