AltaVista has defended its decision to charge more for its unlimited access Internet service, available from the end of June, than it had originally proposed. The US company is to charge £60 a year instead of the £30 to £50 suggested back in March. A company spokeswoman says: “After we made our first announcement, we conducted some market research with Mori that concluded customers would be willing to pay more if there was less advertising on the service.”
