are you sure it doesn't describe the state of mind of the folks in charge... I think they need to lay off those special cookies...
News of another nail in the coffin of one of UK broadband's most venerable names reaches Vulture Central. Pipex Business, one of the remnants spun out of the Pipex group as part of its voluntary self-dismemberment, has dimmed the lights, cranked up the whalesong, and is changing its name to Vialtus (pronounced vee-altus).

I swear, I first read "Latinate rebranding" as "Latrinate..."
That's as may be, but, "Vialtus moves beyond 'speeds and feeds' to focus on finding solutions to business problems through a suite of managed services," tells me that Vialtus is going to focus on solving *their* business problems ("We need to make shedloads of money fast, without any investment") and play fast and loose with terms like "unlimited" (which means "extremely limited, and capped at our whim"). And when they promise you 10Mbps downstream, you should expect to see 256kbps. Unless, of course, you have already exceeded the secret bandwidth limit for the month, in which case 9.6kbps is going to be closer to the truth.

Screw the customer base, make as much money as possible in as short as possible time and flog the business.

Hope the ass@ole who started this crap looses a bundle!..
Really its just a load of people wanting money and sending the consumer off to the lowest quality late to answer can do nothing support.
They had to change the name as Pipex or Tiscali just says 'Call Centre' to me now, no techies and no point in buying their vapour products.
Anyway now we can associate vialtus with pipex and tiscali
