Guardian Unlimited is to follow the lead of FT.com and start charging for some of its services and is to produce full online versions of 'The Guardian' and 'The Observer' for paying subscribers. An annual subscription to an online Guardian will cost £98.57 and the online Observer will cost £41.12. 'The Guardian' and 'The Observer' versions will be available to Great Britain users. 'The Times' decided not to make its online version available in Great Britain because the Audited Bureau of Circulations (ABC) does not include online copies in its sales figures. An edition of the complete Guardian Unlimited site, stripped of all its advertisements, is being offered for an annual fee of £20.
