BT joins forces with Yahoo!

ISP looks to 'premium' users

ISP Yahoo today announced a partnership with BT Openworld in a bid to bring 'premium' services to BT's current broadband users.

The ISP will offer the telco's existing broadband customers access to Yahoo UK's Plus package which provides multiple accounts, antivirus and firewall software, digital photo storage, a personalised portal and browser toolbar.

No price has yet been set for the service, which will be available from March. BT's no-frills ADSL service currently costs £27.99 a month and customers will be expected to pay for the additional services according to a tiered costs system.

BT penned a similar deal back in November with software giant Microsoft to promote and distribute its MSN 8.0 software, which offers such extras as faster downloading times.
