Has anyone tried a free dsl service? I was browsing the net and I came across www.freexdsl.com. It sounds great, I'm just wondering if there's a catch somewhere?

I took a quick look at the agreements posted at their web site. Other than the fact you have to see the ads, and they reserve the right to add ads to your emails, it sounds like a good deal if you don't want to pay $50 a month for a DSL connection.
Some of the more interesting things I noticed in the agreement are they can 'fine' you $1,000 for each email you send to more than 15 people. Most likely, this is to persuade people not to send chain letters - commercial spam is even more costly. If you have a distribution list for things like jokes or news items to large groups of people, you could get hosed. Not likely, as they wouldn't be in business long if they did that.
I am wary of the fact that there isn't a 'plain english' version of the agreement posted. All that legalese seems odd, since the target group would be largely not lawyers.
Personal opinion: Contact them about availability, hardware needed for your area, and any questions you have about the agreement - read carefully. give it a shot and see if you like it. They seem to have been in business for a while, so they should be pretty much on the up and up.
I do prefer to pay for my service, just so if I have problems, they are more reactive. But then again, I have not tried any such service.
