CallNet to re-open registration site
Floodgates open, crowds pour in -- it won't be a pretty sight
CallNet 0800 said it would allow people to register for its toll-free Net access service again before Christmas. The ISP shut down its registration service a fortnight after launching the product in Britain because it was overwhelmed by the sheer number of Net users looking to cash in on the service. More kit is being installed to cope with the increased number of users, but CallNet 0800 still needs to clear a backlog of 50,000 users who have registered their interest but have yet to be signed up. One CallNet 0800 exec refused to speculate on how many people in Britain are waiting to sign up to the service once the ISP opens its doors again. But it is clear it is a sizeable amount. He also said the ISP was being approached by companies on a "daily basis" who want to hook up with CallNet 0800 to offer a similar toll-free dial-up service. ® Related Stories: CallNet boasts big numbers in spite of problems So how good is CallNet 0800?
