National broadband service provider Speakeasy is launching another promotion to attract customers. The latest: the company is giving a free iPod to every new business DSL or T-1 subscriber.
The MP3 player holds 1,000 songs and has a battery life of 10 hours. "This promotion allows us to introduce new customers to our broadband services and to a device and passion that is such a natural extension of broadband usage," says Mike Apgar, Speakeasy CEO.
To receive the $299 MP3 player, new subscribers must sign up by the end of October. After the subscriber's service is installed and the first month's payment is received, the iPod will be shipped to the customer.
Last month, Speakeasy had its eye on the gamers. The company offered new subscribers that signed up for one of Speakeasy's broadband gaming packages a free gaming console from either Sony or Microsoft.
