Top three mobile application threats

BigBlueSky (BBS) has blamed BT for its decision to abandon its offer of unmetered Net access.

A lengthy notice on the front page of the UK ISP's Web site claims that the "launch of BBS had to be delayed because of delays with the infrastructure and delays on the part of BT in connecting the system".

In a verbal attack on the monster telco it reports how it has "fought with BT with regard to connectivity problems".

What's more, BBS goes on to allege how "fraudulent users...succeeded in nearly bringing the system to a halt on several occasions [and] added to a very tight financial burden for the company."

"BBS brought this to the attention of BT who have simply tried to put the blame back on BBS," the notice says.

"BT have also indicated that even though they may be equally to blame they are not prepared to allow BBS any opportunity or help in sorting out the problem."

The notice is signed "The Directors".

So what do you think - someone got out of bed the wrong side or what?

No one was available from BBS by press time. ®
