Haymarket Magazines is launching its first consumer magazine about

the internet with the net, which hits the newsstands in June.



Haymarket, which publishes consumer magazines such as Stuff and

FourFourTwo, as well as Campaign, is targeting the net at readers who

are interested in the internet, but not obsessed by it. The magazine

will direct readers to the best websites so they can maximise their use

of the internet.



Mark Payton, group editor of the net, explained: ’This will be a clear,

concise but entertaining internet magazine that will let readers find

what they want without having to battle with search engines.’



There will be three main sections to the monthly title: news and

features section; a step-by-step guide to the internet; and listings

pages for the best websites, indexed by subject area.



The first issue, published on 18 June, will have an introductory price

of pounds 1.99, going up to pounds 2.99 afterwards. The print run for

the first issue will be more than 200,000.
