Ex-Bosses Resurrect V Two One (V21)

Posted: 23rd Mar, 2007 By: MarkJ
Two of V21's former bosses prior to the ISP's traumatic acquisition by Biscit, Kevin Baigent and Steve Deacon, have stepped in to resuscitate the brand back to life. But can it ever fully recover?:

Since the disastrous take over of v21.co.uk ltd by Biscit Internet there has been nothing but controversy. Users have been left with no communication and in a number of cases no connection or phone service at all.

Kevin Baigent, co founder of the original V Two One commented “This has had a terrible effect on the original name of V Two One, and we feel it is unjustified. During the time of the takeover, the domain name http://www.v21.co.uk has always remained in the ownership of Steve Deacon. We have since decided to launch a new ISP using this well renowned domain name.”

Kevin continued “I would hopefully like to help put users of the original service at ease by confirming that we hold no details of any of the previous customers of V Two One. There will be no billing requests or other spurious demands. This is a new project and is not part of any take over or selling of customer databases or assets.”

We have launched a very basic service initially; however this will change over the coming weeks. We are offering 3 services:

• Pay as you go dial up service
• Unmetered 0808 dial up service at £7.99
• ADSLMax service at £16.95

We hope all our new customers like the service we provide and we hope to have a long and prosperous exceed all expectations with regards our service.

It's understood that V21's former bosses were never paid for the provider by Biscit, while the desire to see the ISP return is understandable.

Unfortunately some consumers will only ever see the name and not the physical change, furnishing its new (technically old) owners with an uphill struggle.
