E7even Broadband goes bust

  cynote 13:03 01 Jul 2006

Users of E7even broadband were to-day informed that the service is no longer functioning. Customers are being directed towards a company called 186k who have arranged to rescue accounts from E7even without recourse to the need for MAC codes. However this is only possible if the customer agrees to sign up for a new minimum 12 month contract and, doesn't provide compensation for monies paid in advance to E7even.
Once again this appears to be the same old story, "beware of the gift horse", remembering that E7even came on the scene offering Broadband at £10 per month providing you agreed a 24 month contract and paid in advance. I only know 1 user and he has only had about 16 months usage, so in the end it only confirms "you get nowt for nowt".
I wonder who will be next to go the same way (Talk Talk???).

at all times when considering broadband providers is the fact that they all have to buy the service from BT wholesale in the first place. This means that companies who undercut their competitors are likely to be cutting their profit margin to the bone in order to pick up customers......in the hope that volume sales will compensate for small margins.

This the thin ice of the internet service provision business, and those who skate on it are courting disaster.

As with all things in life, if a broadband service offer apears to be too good to be true, then it probably is.
