Bisys Group Inc., a data processing vendor used by 300 banks and thrifts, has developed a service called FirstLinq that would let its bank clients offer Internet access services to their customers.

Little Falls, N.J.-based Bisys has a deal with AT&T to offer these services on a private-label basis, which would let banks become Internet service providers that compete with the likes of America Online and Prodigy. AT&T is to fulfill the online support and customer service duties. Five community banks have signed up for FirstLinq.
