    Yes, that 'free' will definitely have megabox homepage/toolbar by default and a nasty number of popups every single time you open a website. I am sure it won`t be a problem for us but when it comes to a regular person he/she will be forced to live with it.

    Pretty smart business model if you ask me though.

    That is a very smart business model, agreed with you there Simas9. I wouldn't mind it, I always thought it would be nice if the government would just provide internet like they provide the roads and sidewalks.

    @simas9 not just the standard promotion but also sniffing your privacy,collecting data from you (remember thats the biggest value at facebook the collected data about their members) blocking websites they dont like you to watch etc.Sorry but i would love to pay a small fee knowing that these stuff wont happen

    Does not have to be completely free.

    It could be at $20 per month (that would generate some income for them to pay of the investment - loan) and still be as good as free (if they are getting 100mb)!
