How about Chorus NTL offering Boardsies the opportunity to be finally taken off their mailing lists ?

That would be a great offer with massive uptake.

You should save that 50€ voucher when Chorus/UPC decide to hike up their charges again.

I registered my interest in this offer this morning and just got an email back from them.
Maybe I'm being pedantic but the wording and spelling is so unprofessional it's put me off a bit!

I got the same email -- "If you can advised me on", "inform me on your preference", "refernce ticket", fullstops missing -- it's all very unseemly.

Yeah, well spotted! What a doofus.* He clearly should've used "---" instead of "--" because he was using plain text to represent an em dash and demarcate, as Wikipedia puts it, "a parenthetical thought or some similar interpolation".

But he got it wrong (unbeliveable I know!) and typed only TWO dashes which is an en dash. What a goof. Give that "grammar nazi" three dozen lashes, and force him to come back and correct his post to include "---" instead of "--", lest he be banned from the site!

Apologies for the interruption, we now return you to your regular programming.

*Sarcasm may be present. Proceed with caution.

Hey there

Chorus/ntl were in touch and wanted to assure us that

Quote:
The good news is that as this is an online offer, we will match the activation rules that apply on www.upc.ie so boards.ie members who order through this offer are not disadvantaged in any way.
I've updated the original post to reflect this

I take issue with the three strokes; they seem bigger than the actual letter 'M', the size towards which we all strive with our em dashes.

Also, I got another email from UPC today which was vastly improved :
Thank you for your interest in UPC products. Your reference ticket no is - XXX, Please quote this to us when contacting us.

If you can please advise us which products you are interested in, we can ensure your property can receive service and then process your order asap.

Installations can take place both morning & afternoon, if you could inform us of your preference that would be fantastic.

Your reference ticket no XXX

Should you have any queries or questions please call us on 051-595143

We cannot process the order until service availability, and your exact product choice has been confirmed, so if you could call us directly on 051-595143 between the hours of 10am to 6pm Monday to Sunday, we can proceed.

Upon successful installation of your ordered products, your voucher will be posted to you by your chosen retailer.

Thanks and we look forward to talking with you soon.

Regards

Chorus ntl Retail Support

Despite the comma taking the place of a semi-colon, an odd capital letter in the middle of a sentence and a few other AWOL punctuation marks it was almost perfect .

Hi, Im thinking of getting the Fibre Sports package with Upgrade to Digital+ HD, Multi Room Viewing & Fibre Power Broadband 15Mb.

Is there a limit to the amount of points on the multi room viewing. I would like it in two extra rooms. Do you pay per room? Is this possible?

Also, since im upgrading to 15MB I shouldnt have to pay for the wireless modem as mentioned in the fibre sports deal. Correct?

Should I have any installation fees if ordering the above? Just want to be clear before I go ahead with it.
