I think you should judge us on who we are - Not who BT are...

The most important thing about the offer, and what has been communicated most prominently, is that if the deal goes through BT would want us to maintain our own business model and brands - This is not a consolidation exercise from BT, but part of a wider strategy for them that sees them look to get into areas their traditional products can't reach.

PlusNet's successes have been based on following our model - Our failures have occurred where we didn't do so. Provided we deliver on our promises to customers (which we readily acknowledge we need to focus on right now), and keep doing so, I see no reason why anyone should be concerned. We've been owned by 2 entities thus far, and the culture of the business and work we do has remained on the same course - I don't see why that would change (And I think the deal potentially offers us some new opportunities which will benefit customers in a big way!).

Regards,

Ian

By that I presume you mean the BT IPStream Max Upto 8Mb product?

You really have no worries there, provided you have opted out - http://max.plus.net

The fault rate and difficulties people had initially when being moved to max have much subsided now, but there is no benefit for anyone to be on Max if they don't want to be, and there is no sense in forcing such things on people.

That's not what BT's announcement says. Their statement says:

"BT intends to keep the PlusNet Workplace platform
separate and has no immediate plans to integrate PlusNet into existing BT services......BT's immediate plans are to continue to operate PlusNet as a separate entity within the BT Group from its Sheffield offices."

Youu're kidding yourself if you think nothing's going to change.

Given that the PN/BT combo have been trying without success to de-LLU me for close to 2 months (although they did manage to cut off my phone), I am judging both on who you are, and finding the combination truly lamentable. In spite of all my efforts at optimism, I can feel a cancelation coming on shortly.

Long term it is an almost certainty that +Net as a company will cease to exist and will be absorbed into the collective known as BT.

This is happening with Powergen. Powergen were taken over by E.On in 2001 and for 3 years continued under the Powergen brand. Last year this was dropped for business and became E.On. For retail it is now known as Powergen-A Company of E.On, and in approx 2 years time will have become E.On.
