Like I say, we make absolutely no secret of the charging model. It's in red
warning labels on the outside of the box and also before you read the
manual. As I say you are getting £100+ worth of electronics for £20-£30 so
it's hopefully obvious why there has to be a subsidy payback mechanism. As
always you pays yer money and you takes yer choice! 

We may not have a network to support (though Demon-Thus who act as our ISP
do!) but we do have a h/w subsidy to support
