British Telecom threatened with two cyberstrikes
Internet users in the UK are being urged to down modems and take part in a pan-European cyberstrike next year, even as they are also being asked separately to desist from access the Net in December.
The strike, which could be the largest of its kind if it goes ahead, will seek fairer Internet charging by telecoms operators in EU member states.
In particular, organisers are calling for flat-rate tariffs -- a single payment per month for voice calls and Internet access -- rather than the per-minute tariffs currently levied.
Protest groups from Germany, Spain, France and Italy have joined the UK to co-ordinate the 'industrial action' and it's expected that more countries will join the strike by the time it takes place in the middle of next year.
