Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

BT has released details of yet another promo offer to tempt people to sign up to its broadband service. As well as its recently announced free flight offer and the £80-off offer for its Broadband basic product, BT is now chucking up to £40 to punters who sign up for its broadband service.

A spokesman for the UK's dominant fixed line telco denied that all the offers were a sign that BT was desperate to attract new customers. "It's a sign of a competitive marketplace," he told us.

BT's new "Tell-a-Friend" scheme rewards existing BT customers who recommend a friend to sign up to one of the telco's broadband products. Get a chum to sign up to any of BT's five broadband packages and you could receive a cheque up to £20. Your mate will also get a cheque for a similar amount, depending on which package they sign up to.

There are no restrictions on the number of friends that can be recommended and anyone taking part in the scheme can either keep the money or donate the cash to kids charity ChildLine. ®
