Actually they might be on to something
Actually I think it's quite a good idea. The people who thought it up will lose money, anyone who buys it will go grrr and learn not to do it again and version 2, swept along on a wave of nostalgia and hot sales of the microSD version of Now that's what I call music volumes 5&6, will probably include some form of high speed dubbing. I like it already!
Wait and See
Phew, so it's a case of waiting for the letter and then seeing how it makes you feel. I'd just scribble 'return to musical dinosaureses' on the letter and pop it back in the postbox.
Calling 08xx numbers for less
Just in case there is anyone who doesn't realise that a large proportion of 08xx numbers have a fixed line equivalent, there's a website called www.saynoto0870.com that tells you what they are. Using this means it is possible to wipe most inclusive-minute-busting-calls off your mobile bill.
Another Bulldog customer
My Bulldog connection at the exchange is plugged into equipment owned by Cable & Wireless. There's no download limit whatsoever and has a solid 14530kbps connection. C&W sold their residential customer business to Pipex with C&W becoming their wholesale provider. Tiscali then bought Pipex. Nothing has physically changed though and If I took out the Tiscali 'Pipex Pro' package now, it would still get plugged into C&W equipment.
However, if Vodaphone buy Tiscali, then they would be inheriting the LLU deal with C&W alongside their current BT reseller arrangement. I can't see that lasting for long considering the fractious relationship between local loop unbundlers and BT.
