Ihug has signed a roaming agreement with US telco AT&T, allowing its customers to use the global network AT&T acquired from IBM this year.
AT&T now operates more than 1350 points of presence in more than 50 countries.
"The beauty of the service is that our customers can use their Ihug log-on and password as if they were dialling up their local POP," says Ihug director Tim Wood.
Ihug customers will pay a single flat hourly rate from any country in the world. In order to use this service, Ihug customers will have to download software from the Ihug web site. The Ihug dialler will automatically maintain a current list of the AT&T POP phone numbers every time a customer connects to the service.
Ihug plan to launch the service on November 1.
