Can Some One Create an Ihug Forum? (Ihug is the best ISP) You already have a Whoosh Forum.

Perhaps an ADSL forum would be a better idea? I haven't really seen that many threads that would justify creating a forum for it. And having different forums won't stop the zealots coming in to 'defend the faith'.

Woosh probably has its own forum due to Woosh actually building their own network to deliver service to customers (which comes with a bag of problems of its own).

You would probably only get one or two threads in an ihug forum, the generic broadband forum does seem to do the job well already

Everyone's got some good points, but I tend to agree that the Broadband forum is enough to cover ISPs and their offerings based on someone else's networks. Woosh has its own network, and if other ISPs follow suit then it's worth creating them..

bradstewart: I don't know about that. Im sure they have more happy customers than unhappy ones




In fact they seem to have more happy campers than any other ISP. It allways amazed me that every time PC World did a survey it came out that Xtra was the "Best" ISP and Inernet Explorer was the "Best" browser but then more people bought into VHS than Betamax.

OOOps off topic.
