Virgin Net has said that an initiative to hand out free hardware and Net access in the US is unlikely to be repeated in Britain. The ISP's comments follow Monday's announcement that Virgin Entertainment is to distribute 10,000 Internet Appliances to users in the US. In return for the free portable Net access-only products, consumers must agree to have their online habits monitored and be ready to face marketing and advertising plugs from Virgin. Virginconnect is a joint venture between Virgin Entertainment and New York-based Internet Appliance Network (IAN). US Net users interested in signing up to the Virgin/IAN joint venture should go to virginconnectme.com. David Murrow of IAN said the company was currently talking to financial services companies and consumer groups interested in the product, but none in Britain or Europe. Murrow did not rule out the possibility that a similar Net gadget offer could be tailored for the European market. ®
