According to CVG, id's John Carmack is mulling over a Quake Live premium service.
Quake Live has always previously been discussed as free to play.
His comments will appear in the next issue of PC Zone and read thus:
In the beginning Quake Live will be completely ad-supported, it's not out of the question that eventually we'll have some kind of a premium service. But we don't know what it's going to be yet, and we're certainly going out with the completely free-to-play model. As the community grows and we start seeing what people actually want to get out of it we may offer some other things there.
So completely free with paid for content. Right.
