Good move vodaphone, into the ISP market without the fuss of starting from scratch.

Now this will be interesting with the financial pump vodaphone can provide.

This will be interesting; sounds like a good combination business-wise.

Although, I do have a vested interest in Ihugs well-being :p

That will explain why IHUG has been so far behind the eight ball as of late and their non-response to the latest Telecom (& other ISP) offers in the market. Their current plans are totally out of whack with reality. IHUG was an innovative company prior to its purchase by Australian company iiNet. Since then IHUG seems to have been been on a gradual decline. I guess it was a couldnt care less attitude on IHUG's owners part.

Will be interesting to see what this does for broadband now.
