      Freedom2Support Acquired by Sky User

      Freedom2Support can this afternoon confirm it has agreed to the sale of all assets, including the freedom2support and Tiscali User websites to Sky User for an undisclosed sum effective from midnight this evening which will lead to the formation of a new Tiscali User website.

      Freedom2Support, first founded in May 2002, was one of the first independent community based ISP support sites to emerge and has enjoyed a tremendous six years with official recognition from freedom2surf staff throughout it's life and has helped many thousands of customers exercise their freedom2surf to the maximum.

      However we believe now is the right time for the website to be acquired by another party in order to help the website develop to serve our users to the highest possible standard. Whilst we are receiving a small amount of payment for this website, during negotiations the primary focus has always been to work with the new owners to develop a site going forward that will serve both Tiscali and Freedom2Surf users better.

      As part of the changeover, Freedom2Support will become a subsidiary section of a new "Tiscali User" website, which will cover all Tiscali ISP's to greater enhance the level of content and to provide support for customers from such ISP's.

      All of the current Freedom2Support Management, Adam, Rachel and Justin will transfer over to the new website and will continue to be involved in the day to day operations of Tiscali User. Chaz and John will also transfer across.

      As per our privacy policy users of Freedom2Support now have 24 hours to opt out of their data being passed to the new owners of the website and to the Tiscali User domain, if you wish to cancel your account here please send an email to cancel@freedom2support.net before 3pm Sunday afternoon.

      Lastly we would like to thank everyone for their support over the last six years, and without you, we would not be where we are today.

      Original announcement is here:

      Thanks Dave, I think we can safely say, negotiations were strong and very long - lol

      It's all sorted now, and we hope to do our official announcement within the next 24 hours or so.

      Hopefully now, we can give those members of F2S and TU the help and support that they may or not need.

      Good luck with it all-i used to be an F2S customer and have been on their support forums many times! Are F2S/Pipex still owned by Tiscali as i heard they were looking to sell?
