- (dumb question) why doesn't advertisers pay for everyone's internet useage?
Will Google ever run free Internet, to expose the maximum amount of people to its ads?
I’m not sure people with no money are an advertiser’s dream demographic 😉
Besides which, the Internet is free to use. You just have to connect to it first. So until BT, etc starts seeing some of this ad revenue you will have to pay.Posted 4 years agodanielgrovesMember
What you pay is for your connection to the internet.
The really expensive part of the web is running server, companies and individuals who run websites pay a lot of money for hosting space on these servers, and in the case for larger companies pay lot of many for hundreds if not thousands of servers. Thats where the advertising money will be going, to pay for the keeping the individual site online.
Your just paying your internet server provider to maintain the pipe that allows you to connect to all of these servers.Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscriber
some do, try samba or ovivo, i use the latter; 750mb totally free each month for my data dongle and have the free phone sim too; awesome
How does that work then? I’ve checked out the websites and am seeing the free offer which looks very tempting, but surely there must be a catch? Do you not have to sign up for some sort of marketing at least?Posted 4 years agoracefaceec90Member
apologies in advance for being an idiot,but why do we have to pay for internet use?
i will be closing my 3 mobile account soon,as i just cannot afford to have it anymore (3 mobile dongle £17.40 for 15gb a month?i do not have a phone line connected at home).

With samba u watch ads and earn mb; ovivo when u connect to net u get an static ad, if u dont want to click it you wait 3 odd seconds and click continue and carry on as normal; the ad pops up ever so often; but if u use a browser like opera with turbo enabled or uc browser in speed mode the ads dot get thro so its win winPosted 4 years agodmortsSubscriber
A company did this years ago on dial-up. You called an 0800 number to connect to the ISP, then there was a pop up showing ads. Don’t think it lasted long though. In those days you had to pay for the calls to the ISP and a subscription.
Then Freeserve came along with free phone number and just a monthly subscription/connection chargePosted 4 years ago
