While Fairfax has introduced subscriptions for the digital versions of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age from today, The Canberra Times remains free at this time.
The Canberra Times for iPad and canberratimes.com.au are not introducing subscriptions, and you can read as many articles from our Canberra newsroom and from across the Fairfax network as you want, as often as you want with no charge.
Meanwhile, the popular tablet apps of the Herald and Age will adopt a so-called freemium model. Rather than tally each swipe of the screen, Fairfax will leave some sections free while others will be accessible only to those who pay.
All sections are free in The Canberra Times for iPad app.
The subscription plan, which applies to visitors based in Australia, New Zealand and other Asia-Pacific nations, begins July 2. Other international visitors have already been asked to subscribe over the past two months.
