Hi pokemom. Of course this isno more free than when your local supermarket offers "buy one get one free". It costs a lot of money to provide a broadband service, so Orange, being in business to make money for their shareholders can't give the service away. What you have to do is to look at the whole package. If the £30 plan with broadband included is better value than your present plan and broadband from another ISP on top, then it's worth going for. In a similar way if Talk-Talk Talk3 plan with broadband thrown in is better value than your present landline plan and broadband on top then that's probably worth having. Technically these offers are free because you aren't being charged any extra for them, but as with all loss-leaders they are aimed at getting you to buy something you wouldn't otherwise have bought - and they're excellent publicity.
