    I had a door-to-door Bigpond salesman at the door today. I've got a small business type connection and had no intention of changing my ISP on a whim away from Internode whom I've found excellent. Anyway apart from being technically clueless and making some statements about their service that are almost certainly false he did one other interesting thing...

    On his snazzy iPad he showed me a list of all the addresses in the street already enjoying their fine service. I thought well that information will come in handy if I ever need a "quick & very cheap" replacement router in the middle of the night icon_lol.gif. Not sure if it violates any privacy laws as such but still didn't really inspire me any further to switch...

    Just noticed Origin Energy had a web page to get those stickers Auzzi so just ordered one, it didn't say anything about needing to be a customer.

    Tasmania doesn't have a choice of power suppliers at the moment but they're introducing it soon, I guess that'll be a new batch of door-to-door salespeople to look forward to soon icon_rolleyes.gif.

    I think more companies are reverting back to door knocking since the introduction of the Do Not Call Register for phones.

    We put ourselves on that register and now the problem is that we seem to receive a lot more charity calls and not for profit organisations like the Rural Fire Service contacting us.

    I've got an unlisted number so don't get many random phone calls, but one annoying thing is that the do not call register doesn't apply to companies you've dealt with before. For example a bank might call to offer life insurance you're not interested in.

    Anyway at least they normally don't push so much at the risk of losing your existing business.

    Like Jubes I am on the register and do get charity and political calls (they are exempted) but we do get what are obviously scam calls originating from overseas and have been getting a lot of them lately mainly Indian voices and saying they are from Microsoft and detected a problem with your computer I've got to the point of screaming down the line and telling to get f'd now considering a whisle to blow it down the line, they are bugging me no end.
