In the current PC Advisor poll, one of the options is.... "No I would not subscibe to broadband as I get Top quality content free"

Is this possible, can you get internet access free?

The question is asking if you would pay EXTRA for the content - not if you would pay for access...

The question is would you pay for top quality content (I assume this means movie trailers, CD previews etc etc) ON TOP of paying for your connection, by paying a subscription or charge to the site providing the content.

NOWHERE does it say "No I would not subscribe to broadband as I get Top quality content free"

It does, however say, "No - I'll always be able to get top quality free content" This means anyone giving this answer is saying they can already get top quality content from sites for free.

Would be a better poll if the meaning of the query was clearly explained. The chance of misunderstanding, as with our friend above, will lead to a skewed result!

Well guy's I may not be the brightest star in the galaxy, but I agree with jerichobob it may mislead other's too, therefore lead to a dodgey poll result.

Surely the answer (from a choice of six options) is being given to the basic question, so there's no need to make it more clear than it is at present?

• Is perfectly clear already

• Would be clear if you had broad-mind

• I'm broad-minded already

• Who needs it?

• Who cares?

The answer is only clear if you understand the meaning of 'broadband entertainment'. This could mean all things to all people. My son plays a game on line to which I pay a monthly subscription, so obviously I have no objection to this, but what is entertainment to others? Some are entertained reading the drivel that the likes of us post in places not too unlike this - though of course no-one here could ever be accused of such a thing.

I'm quite sure, in view of the vast publicity ISPs provide on their home pages, that pending or current broadband (and most dialup users) are well aware of the entertainment channels available.

In fact it's a key attraction of broadband that you can download music, video etc for immediate enjoyment.
