ISPA (Internet Service Providers Association) could be about to rule whether LineOne broke the industry's code of conduct when it ditched its unmetered Net access product during the summer.

The industry body is due to convene tomorrow (Friday) and LineOne is on the agenda.

Don't hold your breath...but it's possible, just possible, that the matter could finally be resolved.

ISPA gave LineOne seven days to reply to allegations that it had failed to "act decently, fairly and reasonably at all times" when it canned the service.

That was in July.

At the time ISPA said it had received a shed-loads of complaints from users and wanted LineOne to refund the £20 cost of diallers to people who had bought them as part of the unmetered offer.

LineOne has so far refused and always maintained it did nothing wrong.

We shall see on Friday. Perhaps. ®
