Swiss Couple Name Their Newborn 'Twifia' To Save On Internet Costs

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Raising kids is expensive - no secret there - but one Swiss couple can take Wi-Fi charges off that list of costs. The couple responded to an ad from Twifi, a Swiss Internet provider. Here was the deal - name your child after the company and get free Internet for 18 years. So the couple did just that - named their newborn daughter Twifia. To be fair, it's her second middle name. But it counts. They say they're going to put their Wi-Fi savings into an account in her name - Twifia. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
