Winding up Order – Netspeed

cranky 15 February 2009 21

Todays CT has a notice in the classifieds that a company listed as Digital Internet Wizards P.L. has applied in the NSW Supreme Court to have Bytecard Pty Ltd (T/a Netspeed Internet Communications), wound up.

The ACN for Netspeed given is the same as that listed on my Netspeed homepage.

Does anyone have any more info? Sounds like a petty squabble got out of hand to me.

This all is really sad. Sad because this, together with other reports of disquiet by customers possibly signals the demise of what is now the main alternative ISP on the Transact network. Reduction in competition is seldom a good thing, but the M&A activities that we have seen have brought us to the point of only two significant ISPs and a couple of minnows. Now it appears possible that one of the two biggies is in difficulty.

For the record I signed on with Netspeed in 2002 and only left in 2012. All through that time I was both a supporter (recommending the technical service) and a critic (of the support). On several occasions I offered Brian professional advice as to how to address some of the main service management issues but this offer was never taken up. I don’t blame Brian personally: I don’t know what kind of pressures he has been under, but I do lament the opportunity to build a better ISP to “keep the custards honest”.

Ultimately I left because Netspeed was not responsive to my needs for better service and support. I’m now with Grapevine and it is early days: maybe the service is better or worse but only time will tell. I’m happy to pay more money for better service so I’m doing the former and hoping for the latter 😉

Don’t consider him a victim, I’m sure he’s got what was coming to him.
