I fear that Tiscali won't be the ones facing the problems. Instead
"Hello, Telenor User Support"
"My friend sent me a link to this really cool website, but your
stupid system tells me it doesn't exist"
"What's the website?"
"www.really-cool.alt. Now fix your systems so I can access it"
The poor guy/gal at the other end of the line will need a really good
answer. Does anyone here have one?
Not to mention the answers we need for the market droids...
"Hey, I heard that Tiscali is offering more Internet than us at no
extra cost, and they make a lot of money on it too. How soon can we
start doing the same?"
This puts a lot of pressure on other European ISPs, and eventually
also North American ISPs (to make this on-topic :-) I hope the rest of
us can stand together against it. A good start would be to come up
with a common response to the two pressure groups outlined above.
