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. ®
