Bulldog withdraws new residential services.
« on: June 08, 2006, 10:46:19 AM »

Bulldog (now part of Cable and Wireless), has today announced that it will no longer be offering ISP services for residential and small business customers.

It would seem that they are now looking at being a wholesale provider of their LLU services to other Service Providers (ISPs).
A statement up on their site states that they will continue retail services for existing customers.

Bulldog customer base up for sale
« Reply #1 on: July 12, 2006, 10:07:06 AM »

As an update

C&W have now decided to sell off the existing customer base which consists of circa 120,000 customers.
Cable & Wireless want to concentrate on selling Wholesale broadband services (LLU), and it is assumed that the customer base will be sold to another ISP that will utilise C+W LLU.

The Independant reports

Cable & Wireless has decided to sell its broadband internet customer base just weeks after it pledged to continue supporting about 118,000 Bulldog users.

C&W pulled the plug on its Bulldog consumer broadband unit after failing to build significant market share. The company decided it could not compete in the consumer broadband market against the likes of Carphone Warehouse, Orange and BSkyB, as it does not have the high-street presence or the customer service muscle of such well-known brands.
