I had an interesting discussion with a client yesterday. We were discussing the "Free Broadband" services being launched in the UK by companies like Orange and BSkyB. Basically, they are all different spins on bundling - ie get "free" broadband when you subscribe to an expensive-enough package for voice / mobile / satellite TV.
It got me to wondering why "reverse" free mobile packages aren't offered - perhaps "Free mobile phone + 200 mins / 200 texts per month, when you subscribe to our £30 a month 20Mbit/s ADSL2 service"
Can't be too long before someone tries this angle, probably an fixed/broadcast provider with an MVNO arm, and not much of an existing mobile base to worry about cannibalising. BT, maybe?
