The Telegraph may well follow in the steps of its fellow broadsheet The Times and put its website behind a paywall in 2011.
There are whisperings abound that The Telegraph is planning to put a chunk of its content behind a paywall and leave some articles to be viewed for free.
The official stance by The Telegraph is that nothing is planned. A statement this week said "Absolutely no decisions have been made on the introduction of a paid-content model.
"Like all publishers, TMG continually evaluates the developments in the digital sector."
But a report in the Financial Times (itself behind a paywall) notes that those close to the matter believe that a paywall will happen in 2011, noting: "Although the final decision has not been made, the pay system will not be an impregnable paywall like that of The Times.
"It will be a metered system or, less likely, micropayments."
The Times hasn't given official figures, but has said that its paywall strategy is working. It's unknown if a paywall will work long-term, however, considering the myriad free sites on the web.
Back in September, The Telegraph launched its first iPad app.
