Sky falling: 119,000 Brits flee O2, Be after Murdoch broadband gobble

schotness

i phoned o2 to get my mac code cos my £20pm home phone and broadband offer had finished and they had put the price up by 8 quid, so they offed to drop it again by 7 quid which still i thought was ok.

Then they offered to put me through to sky to see if they had any offers reluctantly i agreed & the sales guy said he would make me an offer i couldnt refuse !

He said home phone and broadband for £14pm and free sky HD tv for a year & free dish install included. & then he said if i pay upfront its 120 for the year so a tenner a month

being a cheapskate i accepted & my torrent downloads now come down at full speed rather than seemingly being throttled by o2 & my internet access seems fine for gaming etc

I dont watch the sky tv much, cos i think its a bit crap. But i'm not paying for it so....

I recon i got lucky for a change

License fee

So if you only wanted to continue to watch tv & not get internet, does that mean that your license fee will cover your adsl & mandatory line rental charges?

Line rentals ?

So are we gonna get cheaper mandatory line rentals, or are our ISPs just gonna make more profit on what they sell us?

What about all the people in the know who predicted the iphone 5 last year? I'll believe it when I see it & maybe even buy one if they are cheap enough, which I predict as someone not in the know, that they wont be.

Re: Stupid name of the year award?

Do you also object to the term evolution when it is used to describe PC's, phones or malware, as quite evidently they are 'intelligently designed' ?

Windows 3.1 rebooted: Microsoft's DOS destroyer turns 20

schotness

3.11 A proper minimal OS that didnt get in the way of what you actually wanted to do with YOUR computer, providing you knew about alt-tab. If i could install Chrome on top, find a bit torrent client, somehow burn avi's into dvds & use some sort of USB emulation for my flash drives & stuff, I'd consider going back to it.
