CallNet 0800 has failed to clear the backlog of unprocessed registrations for its service that plagued the ISP following its launch at the tail end of last year. The toll-free dial-up service had promised that the backlog would be clear before Christmas and that the ISP would be accepting registrations in time for the festive season. But a spokesman for the company confirmed that despite their best efforts CallNet 0800 had failed to deliver its promise. This is despite receiving a cash injection from Cisco Capital to fund the expansion of its network infrastructure which it claimed would help double capacity "prior to the New Year". The news will come as a bitter disappointment to many Net users in Britain who want to advantage of CallNet's toll-free 0800 service. Elsewhere, ISP 24/7Freecall confirmed it had delayed the launch of its flat-rate toll-free service until February. The service -- which offers users toll-free access to the Net for £24.70 a month -- was due to be launched in December last year. A spokesman for the ISP said: "We delayed the launch because we want the service to be 110 per cent right when we go live." The service is to begin undergoing trials next week. ® Related Stories: Cisco backs CallNet0800 expansion CallNet to re-open registration site CallNet boasts big numbers in spite of problems
