Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

RedHotAnt has got it customers to write the ISP's obituary, according to farewell messages published on its Web site.

Here's what some of RHA's "happy customers" have to say:

"You have saved me a great deal of money since last March, and I would be happy to sign up again if any new arrangement you propose isn't too expensive. Thanks again for your efforts, I think they are more widely appreciated than some of the published comments suggest. Regards and good luck to you whatever the outcome."
Ray Spanner, 16 January 2001.

"Thanks a lot for the service. It was the best money I ever spent. Hope you haven't been damaged too much financially."
J R McCune, 16 January 2001.

"Goodbye RedHotAnt, it was great whilst it lasted, and you made a good go of it. All the best!"
Craig Williams, 16 January 2001.

"I am deeply sorry to hear the bad news, which came in a few minutes ago. The trouble with this sort of thing is the misery it can cause to the staff as well as to the company. I do hope you and your colleagues manage to get fixed up soon with something else, and maybe something better if that's not too much to hope for.
I am grateful to you for the assistance you have given me in the past and if, in any future employment, you find yourself touting for customers, please feel free to bounce a presentation off me."
John McInnes, 16 January 2001.

What's not been published are those remarks from people who paid £120 for unmetered Net access only last month and have yet to receive the service. ®
