RedHotAnt denies end is nigh

Closes doors to new customers

RedHotAnt (RHA) has denied it is winding down the flat-fee ISP despite refusing to accept any new customers.

The new non-recruitment policy doesn't just impact new punters - existing users looking to renew their annual subscription will also be told to take a running jump.

So what's going on? If, as RHA claims, it isn't winding down the business, how is it going to make any cash without customers?

No doubt the ISP has its reasons.

A spokesman for JAK Ltd - the company behind RHA - declined to discuss the matter further. Indeed, he seemed content that RHA's existing customers are kept in the dark over the ISP's plans.

In a confidence-boosting move, he said the ISP would post new information on its site as and when it was available.

He couldn't - or wouldn't - say when the ISP would have an update.

A notice on RHA's site reads: "Please note that we are not accepting any more subscriptions, which will assist in maintaining the reliable and efficient service to our current users.

"However, we stress that this action will not affect any users who already possess a RedHotAnt account, (ie. users who subscribed in 2000); these accounts will remain active until the end of their annual subscriptions.

"We will therefore not be accepting renewals to the RedHotAnt Service.

"We hope that our current loyal customers continue to enjoy the RedHotAnt service until their expiry dates and we apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused." ®
