JUPITER2K: As I see it Slingshot is the only ISP that will try to match or compete with Xnet.


It says a lot when a large, well known company tries to compete with a small(ish) company that does not even advertise their services!  So despite the "speed issue", WxC must be doing something right.

Well to be honest I dont think it would be all too economically benifical to compete with xnet as SS dont HAVE to compete by releasing the same or similar plan as they really are a far larger company and will draw customers with their free 100GB offer and possible 1TB offer, so I dont think they are that desperate.

Xnet seem to be filling 1 niche market while SS goes for the mass market bargain hunters. At the end of the day the ISP that wins is the ISP that fills it pockets with the most amount of cash.

I don't agree, in my opinion a winning isp is one who makes money (after all they are not a charity) and also keeps their customers happy.  After all, without customers they won't be making anything!

I have posted the thread asking for questions to be posted to Cecil Alexander, CEO WorldxChange as part for the "You interview the CEOs" series.

You guys should post some of questions you have about the new plans there.
