Pipex sale to Tiscali confirmed

A quick update for anyone following the Tiscali takeover of Pipex's broadband business--Following an EGM, Pipex shareholders have today voted in favour of the sale of the Pipex broadband and voice services to Tiscali UK today. The announcement to sell was made back in July with a price tag of £210 million. Pipex and Tiscali do not expect any restrictions to the sale although they voluntarily alerted the OFT to ensure a green light as soon as possible. Whether Tiscali will keep any of the existing brands or merge everything under the Tiscali banner isn't known at present. The full announcement can be found here.

I'm a Freedom2Surf customer (who was taken over my Pipex a little while ago). My service is pretty good at the moment. Until that changes, I'm staying. For me its simple, don't give a monkeys who owns the company as long as the service is good.

No doubt any Pipex owned companies users will get a "We're not going to change your service" email like the one that AOL users got when Carphone Warehouse took over.

A couple of months later the FUP was introduced!

Be interesting to see what happens to the Bulldog customers, if the sale of Pipex means the contract with C&W is scrapped or not.

I think it is significant that Pipex hasn't even emailed its customers to tell them this was all going on. Are thye by any chance ashamed?

LOL Pipex email customers LOL to get to the stage they answer emails you have to get a customer services relation officer involved and even then you get an meaningless email.... and you expect them to bulk mail customers LMAO i dont think they even know how to since the days of the pipex globe newsletter seemed to have died a swift death LOL
