NTL:Telewest offers free broadband for mobile users

Virgin offer

Security for virtualized datacentres

British consumers are being offered a pair of Virgins to satisfy most of, if not all, their communications needs.

Customers signing up for Virgin Mobile's SIM-only pay monthly tariffs are being offered a year's worth of up to 8Mbps broadband. The broadband service would normally cost £17.99, the two Virgins say.

The deal is on offer for punters signing up for Virgin Mobile's £15 or £30 per month packages between now and 31 October. Once customers' SIMs are activated, they can get the free broadband service by calling an 0845 number.

Virgin.net is by owned NTL:Telewest. Virgin Mobile, the MVNO that operates on T-Mobile's network also happens to be owned by NTL:Telewest.

Last month, just weeks after sealing its takeover of Virgin Mobile, NTL:Telewest said customers of its existing TV, cable and broadband service could add the Virgin mobile pay monthly service for an extra tenner. ®
