There's still no sign of life at troubled ISP 08004u despite promises that the Dundee-based outfit was set to relaunch its service a week ago. Its Web site doesn't register a pulse and its phone line just runs dead every time it's called. Dundee Trading Standards, which is handling complaints about the service, said officials were still talking to the 08004u, which suggests the company is still showing some vital signs. According to a trading standards official, the ISP has sent out some refunds to disgruntled customers. But, he added, many Net users were holding on in the hope the service would perform some kind of biblical raising the dead-type feat. It seems there is a hardcore of users who maintain that when the service works, it is worth the flat-fee of £49.99 a month for unmetered access to the Net. However, those who do want a refund and can't get in contact with the ISP should contact Dundee Trading Standards directly on 01382 436260. The unwanted intrusion of 22,000 Net users who received toll-free access to the Net for nowt last month is believed to have contributed to 08004u's woes. ® Related Stories 08004u in relaunch bid 22,000 people and the 08004u security lapse 08004u scuppered by 22,000 unauthorised users 08004u MD coughs up to poor service
