Esat are, and always have been, a business. They are not in this to
pander to you, or to anyone else. At the end of the day, if something
isn't turning a profit, they'll get rid of it, simple as that. I'll be
sorry to see it go, but I understand the basic rules of business. (For a
crash-course in these rules, and how they apply to the internet in
Ireland, go to ireland.com and search for "dsl").
