Directors at RedHotAnt refused to open the door to Trading Standards officials yesterday after the inspectors visited the company in response to complaints about the failed ISP.

According to Clive Bainbridge of Kent County Council, only one director was on site. "[And] he wasn't very anxious to talk to us," he said.

RHA has also closed down the premises that housed its hardware. The property is currently up for sale.

And RHA has also moved out of its offices in Hythe, Kent, and is currently working from a two-storey temporary building.

Yesterday, RHA gave less than 24 hours notice that it was ditching its unmetered service. According to sources, the toll-free Net access number ceased to operate at 6.00pm (GMT) last night.

Last week, a spokesman for RHA denied the company was planning to wind down its business. However, one unconfirmed report suggests it could be a matter of days before the company ceases to offer any service at all. ®
