Iceland is teaming up with BT Internet to offer internet access for the first time. It will give away 1.2 million free BT internet discs to shoppers in return for increased advertising on BTInternet and across the BTopenworld online portfolio. Initially the discs will be in the 400 appliance stores but will expand to all 760 stores by next January. Iceland, which launched online in October 1999, already claims the second highest UK online grocery sales behind Tesco. It has expanded the number of lines available from 2,000 to 45,000 and, following the acquisition of Booker, is set to expand this further. Iceland's Home Shopping director Jon Grey said the alliance offered Iceland the chance to show the convenience of shopping online "to some of the most internet savvy surfers in the UK". {{NEWS }}
