In 1995 Deutsche Telekom renamed the Bildschirmtext (BTX) service as "T-Online". In Spring 2000, T-Online became the first major ISP in Germany to offer a flat-rate dialup plan for consumers. This was important because local telephone calls in Germany, including dialup access to ISPs, were not offered on a flat price per call (i.e., unlimited) basis. The flat-rate service was also offered to customers with ISDN connections at the same price as for analog service. In Spring 2001, T-Online announced the demise of the flat-rate dialup plan but offered a flat-rate DSL plan in its place.
Deutsche Telekom (T-Online) was the monopoly Internet Service Provider (ISP) for the German Internet until its privatization in 1995, and the dominant ISP thereafter. Until the 21st century, Deutsche Telekom controlled almost all Internet access by individuals and small businesses in Germany.
