Net result … 5,000 will have to switch to another provider
I have been a member of Which? for more than 50 years and a supporter of its campaigns for fairness on behalf of consumers in the UK.
Since the mid-90s, when the firm provided a “dial-up” internet service to people looking to get online, it has been offering a free email service to subscribers. But the Consumers’ Association – the body behind it – has decided to close it with only a few weeks’ notice affecting more than 5,000 account holders, many of whom are elderly and who will lose their Which.net email address. At the time of writing, no subscribers had been officially notified.
