Redten runs out of 'free' PCs

Broadband deal halted after Watford buyout

Redten Internet has called a halt to its offer of a free Vista PC for customers who signed up for three years of broadband. A notice on the company's website explains that the firm has run out of free PCs, and that the deal has therefore been suspended temporarily.

"We are currently working hard to fulfil all existing orders and hope to be in a position to reinstate the offer soon," the notice adds.

The news follows the announcement earlier this week that Watford Electronics, the parent of Redten Internet, had been bought out by Globally Ltd, a newly created company. It has since been reported that Redten was not part of the deal, and that it is consequently now a separate firm – and in need of a new source for its free PCs.
