Monster ISP Freeserve officially launched its ADSL trial today -- almost three months later than planned. The trial was due to go live in November, but it had to be delayed due to the lack of pricing information from BT. The result, is that Freeserve's full rollout of its broadband service will not begin until the summer. BT is expected to begin rolling-out its full ADSL service in the Spring. Nevertheless, the trial is now up and running, but only 150 people from greater Manchester and West London are taking part. Although the kit is installed for free, triallists still have to shell out £49.99 a month for the broadband service, although this is less than what was mooted last year. ITN, Virgin Records and @Jakarta are all providing content, and Freeserve says it is in talks with 20 others. A spokesman for Freeserve confirmed that less than half of the 150 triallists had been wired up so far to the broadband service. ® Related Stories Freeserve ADSL trial to cost £60pm ADSL gets green light from Freeserve
