    Freeola: is this all real ?/

    http://freeola.com/pricelist.php


    Look at this... Free unlimited webmail accounts, free website with unlimited webspace, ...

    Which company can afford that without any customer paying ? (or maybe they get enough money from their broadband sales, but even then: why would they even want to provide unlimited webmail accounts or unlimited webspace for free ?)
    I wonder if this is a scam or not...

    If it looks too good to be true, chances are its got some fishy things going on & I'd stay away from it. Though if its actually 100% free it wouldnt hurt to give it a try.

    Offers like "Unlimited Webspace" does not make sense to me.

    But you can try it, as far as you don't have to pay anything
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    No such thing as unlimited disk space - especially for free. If you do try it out, I certainly wouldn't even slightly rely on it or put anything important there.

    don't think this is a scam personally.. But note how they do NOT mention the traffic!, I bet that costs money and a lot as they ''forgot'' to mention it..

    Who knows, maybe they count FTP traffic as traffic too and your ''unlimited" space would be paid for by that traffic And so forth, I think its no scam at all but you are better off at a other hosting company

    You can't buy and can't give away unlimited space or transfer.

    From their site:

    1) You must be resident in the UK

    2) You will need to use Freeola as your internet service provider to use our no-limits free services properly

    Didn't see that part, guess it all makes sense now
    But still unlimited storage/bandwidth doesnt seem too likely, I wonder if they'll say anything if you upload 100gigs of data...

    I'm sure there's fine print somewhere along the line.
