BT is to close down its dial-up internet service at the end of the month, it has been confirmed.

The broadband provider will no longer offer dial-up services from September 1st 2013, meaning households will be required to seek an alternative for online access.

BT informed affected customers of its decision to end dial-up internet services in May, reports the Telegraph.

According to BT, around 1,000 dial-up customers in rural areas do not have access to a fixed broadband connection.

These households will need to switch to another dial-up provider - such as Plusnet - or consider investing in alternative technology such as satellite broadband.

Customers who live in an area with broadband coverage are being offered the chance to switch to another deal.

A spokesperson for the Country, Land & Business Association expressed "concern" about BT's decision to cut off the narrowband service.

"We are seeking to clarify the situation on behalf of our members," the representative added.
