I Did Try...Honest

A work colleague is currently with Tiscali and has been seeking my advice about switching provider.
I, of course recommended Plusnet.
He has been on a 2Mb deal for quite some time with included weekend calls but was complaining of lack of bandwidth.
He is about 250 metres from the local exchange and I suggested if he took the 8mb Plusnet option he should get the full 8 meg.
Today he called Tiscali for his MAC key and was offered an 8Mb deal with a price cut and evening and weekend included calls.
Sadly you can guess what he decided to do.
I did try....very hard  Sad

Just to rub salt in the wounds another colleague turned up at the end and told me she was with Talk Talk and was happy with them Cry

Well you didn't try hard enough Tongue
Tiscali have started to match and better - one of my referees was with them and they offered to price and the 3 month free offer.
Thankfully they were so naffed off with them they still switched.

Side cutters are a reasonable way of creating such a problem.
