I suppose this could just as easily be in Helproom or Consumerwatch, but I've just asked my ISP for a MAC code.

I was immediately offered a sevenfold speed upgrade, removal of my download limit and a reduction of £5 in my monthly charge. (plus 3 months free)

It's also April Fool's day. Did you phone before or after midday?

"It's also April Fool's day."

Never thought of that - perhaps I'd better wait for the written confirmation before I get too smug and self satisfied!

A similar thing happened to me last week with aol, thought about it for a couple of days and declined thier kind offer, so ordered a mac code friday night, still waiting for that but guess what turned up in my inbox today?

Wish they had taken note of my comments a couple of months back when I first contacted them about the service.
