Do you think advertising for Internet servers should say rental is extra to their so-called 'great' but limited offer rates?

I don't believe the adverts.

I don't believe special offers are a good enticement before the actual rate.

I compare the final price against my current server.

If it's too good to be true then it probably isn't.

I won't pick any that doesn't include line rental.

Choosing Internet servers - do you really believe the adverts?
« on: February 09, 2012, 04:15:18 PM »
Hello everyone

Now this has to be a question you can all answer, especially if you're in the UK.

You see an advert on TV offering a deal on moving to a new Internet server. Usually its a cheap deal for a few months before going up to the full wack and it often doesn't include the phone rental bill, so you end up having to pay two different places when one might do and so there is no overall benefit.

So, let's see if I've given enough choices for you to choose from. If I haven't let me know and I'll add any extra choices.

It's something that affects us all so you must surely have an opinion on the subject.
