The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Crikey - things must be getting bad at BTopenworld.

BT's ISP is now flogging travel insurance to make ends meet. The latest press release from BTopenwave, as it was described recently, tells us of a "fantastic insurance deal".

"For £69 per person, customers receive fully comprehensive multi-trip travel insurance for a year, which includes 17 days winter sports cover as well as
membership to the exclusive BT Openworld Travel Club," it says.

What next? BTopenwound flogging dusters and mops door-to-door to scrape a few quid together?

Or is this yet further evidence that BTo is being sidelined as a content only division while leaving BT Retail to deal with broadband access? Hmmm? ®
