  1. Their website is really out of date, I do like the idea of their broadband but they don't help themselves with the lack of information. So note to Ryan who has been on here.. A few tips from what I hear and see: Update your website As soon as their is a known issue, keep your customers up to date with a service announcement list your packages on your website and what you are likely to get on each package Nominate someone in your office to be on call, divert your office phone to a mobile if needs be. its always good to let people know what your company is up to from time to time. Stuart was constantly letting the world know what was going on and there really was a buzz about the company. Nowadays I get the impression that you work half days and just turn everything off and on when you eventually realise there is a problem.

    Manx Grand Prix

    I was under the impression that the festival of motorcycling was just a top cover for all the events under it. MGP name should never be dropped unless it become Isle of Man GP. I could live with that!

    Tiny Cow

    sounds about right, the field is a bit of a mess. Seems DED and the promoter have lost money on the event so nobody wants to cough up to put it right. The Isle of Man news facebook page has said it has seen an email that exposes the losses on the Jacksons gig.. a sum of £100K! so Tom Jones justs adds to the taxpayers misery. Good on the person that has leaked it, probably someone who is ending their political career.

    Sunday Roast minus the "Sunday Roast"

    Where can I get a good roast dinner on a Sunday without having to listen to 3FM's 'Sunday Roast' program? Everywhere we go seems to have it on. I'm sure a lot people like middle of the road music with a track history after every song, it seems very popular with the pub and restaurant scene but it's not for me. Any suggestions?

    Awards For Excellence - John Calshaw

    Who are Isle of Man Newspapers, a company making people redundant hand over fist, to give out awards for excellence? The annual we patted you on the back last year so you can pat us on the back this year awards are nothing but a joke. Another night for nobodies to feel important.

    iomtt.com Forum Being Shut Down!

    You do get a lot of insight on the TT forum but you have to sift through a lot of sad losers living their entire lives for a two week club event to come around to get to it. I can only assume there was to much inside info being leaked for DED's liking.

    Sunday morning 3FM

    You think Sunday morning on 3fm is bad? Have you heard Sunday afternoon?

    Mttv

    http://manx.net/tv/mt-tv/watch/60328/mttv-in-2014 This looks awful. They are getting paid to produce this? Maybe Manx Telecom should cut this rubbish and lower our phone bills.

    Manx Radio And The Interlopers

    Amazing. IOM today. Looks like Manx radios competition for their "award" might not have been too strong....

    Manx Radio And The Interlopers

    Who cares what Paul Moulton thinks about Manx radio? What has it got to do with him? He's a bloke that makes poor quality internet videos. And Ron Berry now claiming it was just a document to stimulate debate? That's a U turn and a half! It was a forty min power point! I'd hate to have seen a presentation of something he actually wants carrying out?

    Mytv.im Axed

    MTTV is claiming a million UNIQUE views. There is only 90 thousand people on the IOM so apparently 900 tousand plus people are viewing from off island.

    Tim Glover - Radio Tt

    Not knowing Monday afternoons race was michaels 6th win and saying 5th for at least fifteen minutes was bad enough but today's "1, 2, 3, 4, who do we appreciate...Michael Dunlop" was the final straw for me. I hit off and followed the sidecar race on iomtt and twitter. It's completely unprofessional. There is no authority at any commentary point it's bumbling amateurs. This is a world class event. Can we please bring in the pros.
