Report by Top 10 Broadband finds families will turn to offers to cut costs

Free laptops set to dominate Christmas

The must have technology gadget this Christmas will be free laptops as families look to cuts costs as a result of the economic downturn, according to Top 10 Broadband.

"With broadband and free laptop deals starting at £25 a month, laptops have never been so affordable or attractive to a British public looking to curb their spending in the run up to credit crunch Christmas," commented Jessica McArdle, a spokesperson for the website.

"On Top 10 Broadband, broadband and free laptop sales accounted for just four per cent of total mobile broadband sales in July – they now account for over 27 per cent, suggesting that laptop-bundles will overtake standalone mobile broadband sales by the end of the year," she added.

"Since launching laptop-broadband deals on, we have seen significant sales growth month-on-month and predict that laptop-broadband deals will be top-sellers this Christmas," said a Phones4U spokesperson.
