After our preview and fascinating two part interview with Samba CEO and co-founder Ben Atherton, we’ve finally got round to trying out the service for ourselves and writing a review. Head over to check it out.
For those of you who don’t know, Samba Mobile is a novel attempt to provide free mobile broadband. The service runs on 3G provided by 3 Mobile. We think this is a great choice as all our tests of 3 Mobile have found them to be very fast for mobile data. The 3G coverage is also very impressive.
The way Samba works is that users must build up credit by watching a variety of adverts specially chose for their tastes. Each one they watch earns them a few megabyte of internet usage. So you get to have completely free broadband access on your phone, tablet or PC just for watching some sort commercial videos.
