In order to compete with the likes of BT, the mobile phone provider Orange is offering its customers free broadband.
However this deal is aimed at the small businessmen who sign up for the Orange Solo service which is designed for businesses with one employee.
One thing that seems to be strange here is that Orange already offers free up to 8 Mb broadband to their mobile customers.
Whether there is some slight difference in the arrangement is a matter of opinion.
Orange Solo prices start at £30 per month on an eighteen month contract and the basic level includes 400 minutes, 1 Mb internet browsing and unlimited text messages.
Like many of these offers, it has to be down the personal choices of the user as to whether or not these suit their needs.
