AltaVista US ditches free internet access

ISP and internet search engine AltaVista is to end its free internet access service in the US this weekend.

LONDON (Brand Republic) - ISP and internet search engine AltaVista is to end its free internet access service in the US this weekend.

AltaVista sent out notices to its subscribers earlier this week, informing them the free service, which was funded by advertising, would be cut off this weekend. According to reports, the move is linked to the closure of its partner ISP 1stUp.com, which funnelled 3m clients through AltaVista.

In the UK in August, AltaVista abandoned a much-hyped unmetered access service in before it ever launched.
