I have just returned from trying to connect a Pc to the internet. This lady, (A nurse on call) had been with the ISP for a number of years. She changed her modem, thinking it had a fault, which by coincidence it did have a fault but still capable of connections. She has wasted time, money for my advice and the purchase of a modem. But worse, she has not received important emails and faxes relating to her work as a nurse.
There should be legislation requiring ISPs to give customers/clients a period of notice in writing by land mail, of their intention of closure/liquidation, etc.
Swinternet is to my knowledge, the latest and is the ISP that has caused this nurse "avoidable" problems.
Thank God for "GOOGLE" search! Through google I searched for "Swinternet isp". It is here that I discovered the report of closure.
