analysis on the UK internet industry, has announced the successful
conclusion of its recent campaign to convert its membership to a paid-for

Over the last couple of weeks, the site turned to its membership base to
discover whether or not they would be prepared to pay a membership fee. The
service promised to take no money until enough members had pledged to pay,
to ensure that the service would continue.
On 9th May 2001, the site informed its membership that following the success
of its campaign, a paid membership service is to be introduced from June
2001. The daily news service will continue to be free to the industry at
large, although access to content will only be free for 24 hours. Paid-for
members will have full access to the archive of over 10,000 articles
chronicling and analysing the development of the UK internet industry, as
well as free entry to seminars, special discounts on
events and services, as well as a free subscription to the weekly UK TMT

Chief executive Felicia Jackson said "we are delighted to have received such
support from the industry that we serve, and we look forward to continuing
to deliver the quality of service on which has prided
itself. The fact that the industry recognised the need for a change in our
model, and agreed to support it, has provided a huge boost to the company."
Over the next couple of weeks, the service will be asking those members who
have pledged their support of a paid-for service to complete the process.
Free members of the service will continue to receive news, newsletters and
requested information on products, events and services,
but will not be entitled to special discounts. They will also be asked to
pay a nominal fee for any seminars they choose to attend.
