I can understand why PlusNet is doing this, but I hope it doesn't affect your excellent service.
I've always found your customer service brilliant, technical or otherwise, just hope all the extra new signees don't slow down my BB.
"an excellent opportunity  to increase awareness about the Plusnet brand."

I can't see why it would to be honest, is your worry that we'd take on more customers than we can handle? On that front we are continuing to expand our workforce here in Sheffield and not forgetting that we already advertise on TV.

Will viewers have to vote to give the losing contestant a MAC code to leave ?  Grin

I've often wondered how well sponsors do out of these deals.  Maybe we'll find out  Undecided

Like you I'm horrified at the thought of this as it's a programme on our household banned list  Cry Cry

This is the type of marketing I'd associate with TalkTalk.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

You may be expanding your workforce but what about the capacity to handle traffic? - More customers = more bandwidth.

Re: Plusnet to sponsor Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5

I would have thought that taking on all the Vodafone broadband customers in one day would be of more concern if capacity was going to be an issue ! - especially if they are another bunch of angry customers demanding UNLIMITED bandwidth and UNSHAPED traffic, because that is what they were used to, or previously unaware of ?

I would like to second that too.
There are better programmes to sponsor. The money could better spent maybe giving us free caller display.
