Pay for your broadband with cash at the Post Office

Hidden away underneath a headline about Westlife featuring in a £10m advertising campaign, the Guardian informs us that the Post Office is going to give people the option of paying over the counter for its broadband service.

We presume that this will incur the £1 a month surcharge that the service carries for anyone who doesn't pay by Direct Debit. The Post Office already makes 10% of its earnings from its 400,000 home phone customers, and is looking to gain in the region of one million broadband customers.

Yes but up and down the country more and more post offices are being closed! So people will have to make sure there is a post office in there area!

Unless they are going to do the e-top up thig-a-majig.

Presumably, this payment option is for customers who don't have an internet connection so can't pay online. Oh, hold on a minute...

If no comment is the most polite thing you can say then just don't bother saying it.

Oh and i could have meant no comment in a good way, maybe i thought it was such a wonderful idea words could not explain it...... nah who am i kidding lol... Alot of people that live in small towns wouldnt even know what a post office counter looked like nowadays let alone find one to pay for a service lol.

Wasn't Herdwick at the last Post Office broadband post defending it?

Herdwick has shares, a crap PR weasle or is some PC Labour voting unionist.

WOULD anyone trust the Post Office with their internets? Erm I don't think so even if it is running of BT's Internet Service Providings.

LOL you watch fonejacker and i claim my five pounds hehe... I cant blame herdwick though if he does have shares in BT and the post office you cant blame him for defending them, they need all the defending they can get at the moment.
