Freeserve is to charge Net users £59.99 for its ADSL broadband service -- but this is only a trial price and could change once it's rolled out next year. The trial is due to go live in December -- a month later than planned -- before being rolled out in the spring of next year. According to an email from Neil Sansom, marketing director at Freeserve: "The monthly charge is £59.99 (inc. VAT) with no connection fee. This is the trial pricing only, the launch pricing is likely to be different. "There are no Internet call charges with High Speed Access, voice call charges still apply though." It also appears that Freeserve -- Britain's largest ISP -- is also happy to hand out "a limited number of free subscriptions to the trial" although exactly how these will be dished out is not known. Nor is it known how "different" the launch price will be or what the technical specifications of the service will be. Freeserve delayed the announcement of how much the service would cost because BT had failed to set a wholesale price for the service. Earlier this week The Register reported that BT had increased the cost of its ADSL trial to £49.99 while reducing the bandwidth available to punters. No one from Freeserve was available for comment at press time. ®
