Suggest you do not use our forums to request members supply their mail address.

If a member has a specific problem you feel help with I suggest you use our PM system.

OK then.
Market 1 & 2 victims with moderate usage who have / want Anytime calls bundle have opportunity to get cheaper deal and in some cases more usage.
It does not necessarily mean you need to switch ISP, just haggle with your existing one.
It is a little bit complicated, some calculations to be done etc.
So just send me a PM and I will give you the details of what to do.

There is a deadline of 6th July.

PS
Robertos deleted (?) post suggested it is as simple as threatening to defect to PlusNet
(who are normally the cheapest).
NOT SO. For once the boot is on the other foot.
You can get even PlusNet to give you a discount from their listed price !

You can get pretty well any ISP to give you a discounted price. It's called a "Retention Discount" or "Loyalty Bonus" or similar. Several also have referral schemes, whereby as a result of someone introducing a new customer both receive a benefit.

Many even have specific Retention Departments for the purpose. It just needs customers to be aware of this sort of thing, as they are increasingly becoming. Not just in the field of broadband either.

Your style does very much suggest a hidden agenda, which has to make one suspect you expect to benefit. Alternatively, building on someone else's comment in another forum, you are naive and have only just discovered this.

The only puzzling bit is your deadline date. Maybe it is a referral scheme of some sort.

No hidden agenda.
As I explained it my original post I want to be able to asses Market 1 & 2 victims reaction to possible campaign to Ofcom to do away with this unfair Market classification,
so I asked people to email me which led to Sadoldman to delete my post.
But PM will do just as well.

Martin

That bears no resemblance to what you put in your original post, nor to anything you have posted since. Bear in mind that to the site owners and staff, I think also to mods, the contents of deleted posts are available.

Do not PM the OP!

In reply to a post by martinsq:
No hidden agenda.
What's the secret then that can't be said in public?

This is not some sort of masonic lodge that business has to be done behind closed doors.

I agree with Roberto that you are being less than honest here.

Either pipe up with your idea or forever hold your piece.
