"Domestic energy bills will fall by 7 per cent says Huhne, but only if we use a third less electricity."
So in reality they're going to go up by 41% by my calculations

While I know almost nothing about Telestra, this seems like the usual corporate "dressing mutton up as lamb" bullshit
If these companies spent as much on improving their services as they did trying to convince people that their services are of x quality, then I imagine that their customers would be a *LOT* happier
To be honest, I wouldn't let BT do any work on my property even if I was there. A few months ago they turned up without warning and put a new line from the telegraph pole to my house, and they made a RIGHT pigs ear of it, and it took me some months to get them to put it right again
never mind infinity, i'm not even getting half a meg on 'normal' broadband after many years with a rock solid 8mb (line length being 1km)
been yelling at bt to get it fixed for a month. they can't even keep track of if an engineer has visited me, and when they say they're going to ring me on my mobile they ring me on the house phone, and when i tell them i'm not home til thursday, they ring me the tuesday (today ironically enough)
incompetent arseholes. i'm seriously considering switching to talk talk who have just unbundled my exchange, since even with their reputation they can't be worse than i'm getting with bt
I got a fine for £100 fine for battery, £100 for resisting arrest and on top of that costs of £150, compensation of £50 and a 'victims surcharge' or £15 a year ago. Originally it was being taken out of my jobseekers, but when that switched from contribution based to income based, the DWP decided to stop taking the fine out of it. I then had to wrangle for with the court for months to actually let me pay my fine off. They said that their computer systems wouldn't let them do it without the DWP telling them
In the end, I sent off a nasty letter to them recorded delivery and they phoned me up a day later to arrange how I was going to pay. Funny that isn't it?
I managed to pay it off at the begining of this year, and they still haven't paid the compensation to the person I hit.....
A bunch of incompetent arseholes is what I'd call the people that run the financial side of stuff. According to the BBC, they are owed £1.3 billion in unpaid fines.
