[Berlin] -T-Online will be offering a "full flat rate" package beginning on June 1 for 79 DM (38 USD) a month, the company said on Friday. The full flat rate package includes unlimited net access and the telephone charges of connecting to the mother company of T-Online, Deutsche Telekom. The minimum length of contract has been set at one year.
Deutsche Telekom is also extending its DSL network, promoting the motto of "broadband access for all". Deutsche Telekom chairman Ron Sommer commented, "With this type of connection we will be bringing broadband onto the mass market." At present his "T-DSL" service still costs 50 Marks (24 USD) more than the standard ISDN connection. Further information on future T-DSL pricing is expected soon, commented the Deutsche Telekom press office.
By the end of the year the company wants to have sold around 500,000 T-DSL connections. T-DSL is already available on 60 local city networks - 220 local networks should receive it by December 31.
Moreover, T-Online intends to restructure its tarif structure. For example, "T-Online Eco" will be reduced from the current tarif level of 5 pfennigs (2 cents) a minute to 2.9 pfennigs (1 cent) including telephone charges. However, the two free hours which have been part of the package will now be dropped.
