END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH: TalkTalk no longer worst ISP in UK

BelieveItOrNot

Re: talktalk 'accidentally' charged us for two accounts over 3 years...

would have been nice if we thought of it at the time... they paid up pretty pronto after that.

funny thing was, after the tweet with the solicitor's mention, every emailed reply had this at the top:

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

That firm is actually our company solicitor's, but I guess they needn't be when it comes to social media ;-)

Openreach... don't get me started. £330 for a hole in the wall:

interesting... but...

On sites I run, with a truly global reach, iOS devices account for 55% of mobile traffic for the last month. Android is at 17%. RIM on 3%. Symbian on 14%.

GA stats, fyi

So the win on the interweb is currently in the hands of the fruity one IMHO.

On another note... its only in the last 3 months or so that Android has been going up fast. Although that could also be to do with the site's getting more traffic in general.
