Re: 5 members agreeing on prices via a quasi trade body?
Excellent link, thanks. I have emailed them this evening, citing El Reg as my source.
As others have noted, it isn't a particularly complex database and the human population (or even the UK internet-using population) isn't doubling every 18 months so the running costs ought to be going down. They've been gifted a monopoly by us (the UK). They haven't earned it. We should be able to take it back if they start taking the piss.
