UK INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (ISP) BT is rolling out a high speed broadband service called Totally Unlimited Broadband, which offers unlimited internet usage at lower prices.

BT said the service will be free from traffic management and starts from £16 a month for 16Mbit/s copper broadband, £23 for the 38Mbit/s Infinity package or £26 for the highest speed 76Mbit/s Infinity service.

"Previously, the cheapest way for BT broadband customers to go unlimited was by taking a £26 a month option," the provider said.

BT will also offer the first six months free for new customers of the service, though this offer won't be available for those signing up to the cheapest package.

Along with the news of its updated broadband service, BT posted rather positive third quarter profits for 2012, up seven percent to £675m compared to the same quarter last year, while adding 122,000 more broadband customers.

However, in not so good news for the company, BT saw a six percent drop in revenues compared to the same quarter last year, to £4.5bn, with the decline hitting every division.

As part of its service rebanding, the UK ISP also announced BT Cloud, an online storage service with a free allowance for consumer broadband customers, including a 50GB allowance for Infinity 76Mbps customers.

The service allows BT's consumer broadband customers to back up files and access them from smartphones, tablets and computers on 3G. Customers can also stream their content direct to their Android or iOS device via their BT WiFi connection, the company said. µ
