3 Big data security analytics techniques

The 10-strong sales force recently jilted by wireless broadband ISP Tele2 UK is looking for a new partner.

Those heart-broken souls from Cyber Call, a call centre outfit from Cardigan in West Wales, have posted a lonely hearts ad in the hope that they can find true love again.

Says the ad: "Highly desirable and hot to trot, good looking and fully loaded ISP Sales Team - recently dumped by long-term, short sighted Wireless ISP partner - WLTM - dynamic, imaginative partner for exciting and profitable long-term relationship. Genuine callers only please. Tel: 07050 555 222."

They say they may be redundant, but that they're not despondent.

Tele2 dumped its sales force as part of "drastic" cuts at the wireless broadband operator following what appears to be extensive restructuring at the company.

Tele2 is said to be running on skeleton staffing levels.

The company has also ceased taking on new customers, although it maintains that existing customers would still be supported. ®
