~ Myinternetpass launches pre-paid Internet access card for UK households ~

UK households can now get online for at least 50% less, with Myinternetpass, a new way to connect to the Internet.

The Myinternetpass pre-paid Internet access card works like a pre-paid phone card and costs £10. It offers two options for surfing the net: 30 days of unmetered access for heavy users, or 2000 minutes for lighter users, valid over a 3 month period.

At 1/2p per minute, Myinternetpass offers the best value 24/7 metered access of any Internet Service Provider. It’s also at least half as expensive as the lowest pay-as-you-go rates offered by the UK's top six ISPs; AOL, Freeserve, BT Openworld, Tiscali, and ntl.

Myinternetpass is available from retailers nationwide (including Balfour Convenience Stores) and can also be bought as a ‘virtual card’ over the Internet at, with access details supplied by email. The benefits, aside from the cost, include:

· No contract, or cancellation period
· No additional call charges on phone bills, or other hidden costs
· No software to load: just type a freephone number, user name and password into any home computer’s built-in Internet connection software
· The flexibility to change between tariffs
· Portability: A user can enter details onto any PC in the UK
· Multiple cards can be used on a single computer in shared accommodation
· No credit history or personal information required

Phillip Glyn, managing director at Myinternetpass, said: “If the USA is anything to go by, pre-paid Internet access will witness a huge takeup over here, mirroring the popularity of pre-paid mobile vouchers. Even if you’ve never used the Internet before, the benefits are obvious – it’s simple to use, there is no need to sign up to a contract and it offers the best value-for-money web access in the UK.”

Myinternetpass offers customers e-mail, web site and call centre technical support. It will also shortly be introducing a prepaid broadband card to cater for the growing number of people switching to an ‘always on’ connection.
