A telecommunications company partially owned by Kingston Upon Hill City Council plans to launch a pioneering interactive television service over normal telephone lines.

The Financial Times reports (p26, Companies and Markets Section) that Kingston Communications plans to be the first company in Europe to offer the service, using technology which enables copper telephone lines to carry digital signals.

Shares in the company have more than doubled since they were floated in June at 225p. Kingston Interactive, formally launched to an initial 1,500 customers on October 18, will offer services including high-speed internet access, local news and information and home shopping.
