PhoneLink Plc, purveyors of the Tel-Me on-line information service has got together with Unipalm Pipex Plc to offer a Tel-Me Internet Dial bundle which combines the newly-launched Tel-Me 2.1 with Pipex Dial dial-up Internet access and World Wide Web browsing. The Tel-Me software brings free electronic mail and 13 other services, such as credit checking, news and telephone directory services. Pipex Dial has a Netscape Communications Corp browser, a newsreader, Telnet, Ping, and File Transfer Protocol (CI No 2,706). However, the two packages are linked rather than 100% integrated, said Chris Knowles, strategic and development manager at PhoneLink, inasmuch as as Tel-Me can be started from within Pipex Dial, but not vice versa. The changes from version 2.0 to 2.1 of Tel-Me are fairly minor, a slightly altered interface and compatibility with Microsoft Corp’s Windows95 and IBM Corp’s OS/2 Warp. It is still available separately, with or without the modem, for ú50 or ú100 (CI No 2,651). Tel-Me Internet Dial is currently in beta test and will be available later this month for ú100 and a monthly charge of ú20. PhoneLink said this was ú5 less than the cost of subscribing to both services separately. It will also be available for ú200 with a 28.8Kbps modem using PhoneLink’s FastConnect protocol. Customers will get a single bill for the services from PhoneLink.
