      I think that e-mail should be forwared straight onto Ofcom and reported. That really is disgusting and stinks of a company who are trying everything they can to keep customers.
      Having been a Pipex customer for 4 years I was disgusted to find that in upgrading to a faster speed forced me into a new 12 month term contract.
      I'm now a happy customer of Sky having told Pipex to get lost.

      Funny thing is I got my MAC from F2S within minutes of asking - literally minutes! This was back in late August though so I'm guessing they're starting to notice the haemorrhage and putting up a bit of a fight.
      As has been said though, resorting to libel is a bit silly. It's unprofessional and reeks of desperation. Funny how they didn't mention Customer Service which is where they might stand a chance of scoring some points (your mileage may vary....).

      I would just like to say that I was with Tesco for about 18 months, when I requested to move from them to Sky. I requested a MAC code, and got it no problems. I can honestly say that I did not experience any problems transferring between companies, and have not had any problems with Sky either. That said if a company is new to the broadband maket should we not expect there to be a few teething problems?

      Reading the previous post though it makes you think what lengths companies will go to.....running scared are they???????

      tbh That is the worst thing a company could do - send something like that by email, especially when F2S have so many problems at the moment.

      I used to sign up people all the time to F2S, now I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy, even when I used to get £15.00 referral.

      It's not what Pipex learnt that is the reason why I'm now with Sky. It's what they had forgotten...

      ha!

      Can't believe the low levels some companies try to go to! I think I must have been lucky when I got my mac code from PIPEX as I got it pretty promptly. But it was their previous lack of service that prompted me to move, along with the cheaper prices offered by sky.
