      I hope your wrong, coz I am with f2s at the mo, who are owned by pipex.

      Can you post a link to your source, I have spent a whilesearching the asdl guide forums with no joy.. checked all threads with pipex or tiscali in title for the last week, but of course i have not read all the posts in each thread.

      ta for that, but as I read it it is refering to ISP's who have been subing out there llu to plus net, and as plus net have been inhot water of late, then these small isps who cannot afford their own llu are gonna jump to tiscali.

      I would not count pipex in this camp, but indeed i guess there is ecominic sense for two llu suppliers to work together to share the investment costsand risks.

      Nothing to date on freedom2support relating to this yet.

      I did not get my information off Adslguide, wait and see, the announcement will be forthcoming soon. You heard it first on here!

      in fact i bet The Hoff is OFF! when he finds out, why else would they be doing high profile advertising on TV, unless they had something to sell?

      afaik it is only for the LLU side of things, quite simply if you cant offer LLU then you aint gonna survive as an ISP

      Rumour has it as well (and only a rumour) without any proof at the moment is that Plusnet are looking into AOL.
