Tempo rivals Dixons with free Internet
Alex Mayhew-Smith In the latest battle to win subscribers to free Internet service, Dixons’ rival Tempo has set up a service offering free calls. The high street chain is offering a free service, the same as that offered by Dixons’ Freeserve, but with the addition of free connection calls during off-peak hours. Tempo’s screaming.net service will offer 118 off-peak hours a week Internet connection at no charge. The service will be available at first from Tempo stores through free CDs containing the necessary software. Users will have to sign up with telecoms service provider Localtel to use the service, which will make a return on normal voice calls. This, the firm says, will be cheaper than BT rates. Initially a limited number of CDs will be available so as not to swamp the service. Later on these will be on offer at the rate of 100,000 to 200,000 a month.
