Re: BTinternet problems?

  • From: Stephen J. Wilcox
  • Date: Thu Jun 19 11:43:40 2003


BT operate 2856 in the UK, and 5400 internationally

5400 used to be concert which was a BT/ATT venture which is now solely run by BT 
under their brand - hence I guess why the msg on concert.net


Email contact sent offlist..
