    BT's broadband take-up set to take off with special flights offer
    BT is set to leave competitors grounded with its latest broadband
    offer - fantastic flight offer to the US or Europe for all new

    consumer products in the next six weeks can get a return flight to a
    host of popular holiday destinations - Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels,

    limited time only - from May 10 to June 20, 2004.

    another example of BT taking the lead in the market to drive broadband
    uptake and make Broadband Britain a reality.

    "We think it is a fantastic deal for our customers and one that we
    feel will entice customers to BT instead of our competitors.

    broadband in their home, now is the time. Broadband from BT is more
    than just about speed, it's about the ability to download and share
    music, videos, films, play games online with friends across the world
