Well it’s another year, and so another opportunity for a new entrant to the happy band of companies offering something free in return for watching adverts. We’ve reported on this type of stuff before (who hasn’t?) but this time the difference is it’s an offering for mobile data users rather than desktop computer users. Will that change the result? Only time will tell.
Samba Mobile want to sell you a cell phone SIM card for £2.99 and thereafter would like it very much if you would watch a selection of video adverts from various companies. In return Samba will give you free 3G mobile data minutes for you to use on your usual browsing needs. Sounds fair? You can use the SIM in a phone or a dongle, and if your ad viewing is not enough to cover your Internet needs, you can always top up with cash. Laudable idea, someone get the popcorn and a couple of chairs.
