Changes to dialup renewals

Fish Telecom today announces that it will cease renewal of dialup Internet accounts as from 1st January 2012. After 13 years of serving the people of the Illawarra, and given the decline of dialup Internet access, it has been decided that dialup Internet services will be phased out over the next few years. Our home and business broadband services will continue as per usual. Customers who renew prior to 1/1/2012 will be able to continue using their dialup accounts until they either deplete their hours or their accounts expire. Fish Telecom would like to thank all of our current and previous dialup customers over the last decade and three years for their custom.
