We're currently in the process of moving our broadband service from one company to another and we received a letter informing us of our connection date to the new service provider. The letter read:
We are pleased to inform you that you will be connected to our broadband service on the 01/01/1900.
According to this I should have been connected long ago rather than the 3 weeks + that I've had to wait for my service to be switched over! Still...apparently I'm going with a company who are well ahead of the rest of the field ;-)
