For an idea of how competitive the UK broadband market has become, you just need to look at the latest offer from Redten to tempt potential customers – sign up and you get a £500 desktop PC package absolutely free.
The deal you need to commit to is a £20-a-month 8Mbps ‘unlimited’ ADSL broadband package. And if you do, then you’ll be able to pick up a desktop PC with 3GHz Pentium 4 531 processor, 512MB of DDR 2 memory and 160GB UltraATA-133 hard drive. There’s also an 18x DVD writer, keyboard, mouse and speakers.
And there’s a monitor – a 17-inch LCD from LG, which will be upgraded to 19-inch if you’re one of the first 10,000 to sign up. You can sign up for the broadband/PC offer now.
