A man from NTL called at my door yesterday evening. He said that they were digging up the road to change their boxes and were offering a free dial-up internet connection to compensate for the inconvenience. I know there's no such thing as a free lunch, so what is the catch?
I haven't seen any details in writing. I presume that one has to subscribe to NTL phone service to get free internet. The previous resident at my place had an NTL telephone account, I just have cable broadband.
He said he would send some literature (again). It doesn't matter what time of day salespeople call, I am always defensive, and sometimes take the offensive if they interrupt something important. I was curious to know what strings are attached to this offer, assuming it is a genuine one, and how many others have been offered a "free" internet connection.
