PRODIGY Services is developing a business information and product marketing service for the Internet global web of computer networks which offers services for companies wishing to set up directly-connected Internet nodes, which can then be used to conduct on-line business and sales activities, among other uses.

Prodigy also plans to give its nearly two million subscribers access to the thousands of often raucous bulletin boards known as Usenet, and to create special services of interest to business executives. These will be available from October 10.
