Nightmare. Kingston shafted Eclipse, and they will now shaft all the Mistral resellers.

jimwillsher:- KC shafted Eclipse how? I've been an Eclipse broadband residential customer through the changeover, and the service has always been great as far as I'm concerned. If the customers can be kept content should we be worried if "resellers" (whatever they are) aren't kept happy?

I feel so sorry for Mistral customers. As an Eclipser who has seen good support people leave them and service degrade since Hull Corporation Telephones (yes I know they're Kingston Comms but they still act like a council department) I can only see Mistral going panwards.
