OK. So I just get a call from a fast-talking Bezeq rep. “Because I am a high speed client of Bezeq, Bezeq is happy to give me a free modem/router”.

At first I thought it was a scam trying to get my credit card. But I let him talk, and he goes on about the router/modem.

No one gives away anything for free, so I keep asking what’s the catch.

“No catch”, he responds.

And continues his spiel and asks me to confirm my address.

At some point in his story he mentions that my monthly bill will show a 19.95 debit followed by a credit.

Now it clicks.

I ask him, “What happens if I leave Bezeq?”

He asks me, “Do you plan to leave Bezeq?”

I respond that it’s possible.

He then clarifies the deal that I would then have to pay for the modem/router in what remains of the 24 monthly billing periods.

But if I hadn’t asked that very specific question, he wasn’t going to volunteer that information.

Ah - so I shouldn't be sad that my "free" router never arrived.

A they say, nothing's for free, but advice.
