Re: That french maverick could be a blessing
When Free entered the french market, prices collapsed by 30%.
So did performance. After 5pm I used to have to result to dialup to read email (I am not exaggerating), because Free throttled any non-port80 traffic, and SSL email just gave up. The same happed to 12 other people in my office, so it wasn't an isolated case. Free have a great business model, some interesting technology, but they screw their customers at every opportunity to keep their costs down. And sue any customer that dares to accuse them of shady practice.
