Lineone users who cashed in on a special 0800 number for BT Internet customers this weekend will not be charged for gatecrashing the service, said BT Internet.
The company's first weekend of 'toll free' access for BT Internet was plagued by problems that enabled customers of Lineone to access free of charge. (see earlier story).
BT Internet dismissed the problems as minor issues and will not be pursuing payment from those lucky Internet users that benefited.
"A small number of technical problems enabled some Lineone customers to access the Internet for free for some hours," said David Pincott, BT Internet spokesperson.
Pincott insisted any teething trouble experienced has now been fixed and will not occur again next weekend.
