look I think smart is a great idea, I use it for work but how can I use it more at home if the exchange wont shift. two years ago I tried that number and the exchange is still not EVEN ON THE build programme. then they announce job cuts in sales (076jobs) and one hears it costs a small fortune to run and not turn much profit. In light of the incumbent and its prices why can’t smart be smarter, build a network win customer and retain 3G licence it won then lost.

my fear is the Smart do an NTL phoneline u-turn and comreg leaves citizens high & dry again without a SP.
