UK broadband provider Aquiss have announced today a "try before you buy" scheme that will allow customers to test their service for free for a month. The offer applies only to the Aquiss Family and Gaming products and will allow broadband users to test the service to see if it is up to scratch before committing to a contract. With free migration in and out using MAC's customers will not be charged at all for the service.
Some Terms & Conditions apply though. The offer is only open to BT based broadband lines (so those who have a line for example from TalkTalk at the moment cannot take part in the offer). Notice must be given within 10 days of service and migration must occur within 28days of activation. A broadband cease charge will apply (£30) if the line is cancelled rather than migrated.
One gotcha that could affect Aquiss is BT's dynamic line monitoring (DLM) system which can limit the speed you receive in the first 10 days of service whilst it profiles your line to help with stability. With Aquiss requiring notice within 10 days of the start of service, users might not be receiving the full line speed that could be capable until after they have given notice to Aquiss that they don't want to continue with the service!
To take part in the offer, use the offer code 'TRYBUY' within signing up. This is valid until 15th March 2011.
