As an AOL subscriber, I dread to think how much worse the Service aspect of my ISP will become, combined with all Carphone Warehouse's services problems. Time for a short-sharp-exit to another provider, methinks!

Spectacular! AOL is so bad already, I reckon the fortunes of its UK arm will improve markedly!
