We dumped them after their bill for broadband + home phone went to £60/month plus the Wouldn’t implement IPv6 either.
Now on FTTP for £28/month, similar speed.
Beardies company can rot - the extra dosh will be useful.

Wouldn’t you like to... Die in my bug riddled airplane?*
We can crash along with automatic systems that did us in...
Oh we can die, we can die..
There’s ZERO chance anyone we know and our family will EVER be on one. Unsafe at any altitude!

You've obviously not looked too far into the business practises of many takeaways in village and town centres then? They all play the same game, in their case the public gets food poisoning/rats &/or roaches in shop then it is summarily closed down. Their wife/son/daughter/brother/etc. etc. then opens a "new place" in the exact same location.
Whack-a-mole is the game, phone spamming is the name.
Anything coming from 0843 is a spammer. ICO get a clue bag!
We at work have gotten particularly good at winding up Microsoft Support that calls in our office. Current record is more than 12 mins feeding them utterly random twaddle before they melt, curse and hang up.
The Met Office blown billions and still cannot tell us a reliable weather prediction, or a semi-estimated weather prediction.
All this newfangled crap is good for is making the vendors rich.
How about we take the £93M and apply it for taking better care of in-need OAP's, etc or hiring more doctors, nurses or doing upkeep on our hospitals first!
My Mum is 84 and suffering from Alzheimer's more and more every day.
Given she can barely use the PC, even though it's got good A/C on it, this will likely lead to my installing SuSE (or equiv) on it next time I am in front of her PC.
Not that she may recall she still has it.
I’ve been quite unwell and staying in Wrexham Park hospital in Berkshire. The county operator is Frimley Trust of the NHS.
All the nurses stations and roll around computers I personally saw being used are still on it.
Not a single sight of Citrix from my entering A&E to Observation unit and then onto a Ward had it.
Sadly the HW they have is pretty up to date even if the screens aren’t.
Almost worrying times ahead.
Our company doesn't do payroll, even though there's a venerable army of HR and Finance people. Who the @£$% knows what they all do all day. When you approach them with a question, they tell you to contact ADP. So you do and you're told "our app only works with IE 10". Not 11, not 9, not even Edge -- IE 10.
Thus if you need to know what's on your payslop, or what deductions, or G*d forbid your end of year PAYE info, you have to run IE 11 in IE 10 "bassackwards compatibilty mode" or you're blocked from even logging onto their site.
Don't even think about Firefox, Safari or Chrome "unsupposed and insecure" is the message from ADP regarding them.
Deserve to have the beejezus fined out of them and we cancelled our card and trip booked during the August- September hack.
Well Sherlock if the bad guys have your personal details/ address and likely your travel dates then can burglyof your home be far behind!
Austin became the laughing stock, or something when they declared the town a "Nuclear Free Zone" in the 1980's.
I guess no one should tell them about the rather decent sized Tokamak in the sub-basement of one of the Engineering school buildings at University of Texas that has been successfully running for decades!
Has anyone ever looked at the size of the app? 534MB is the biggest, lard arsed app I've ever seen on an iPad/iPhone.
It subsequently has been deleted, just like I disabled the Dain Bread Siri crap o'app.
Never looked back but in pleasure ;-) of the decision a few months ago!
