I must say I'm very puzzled by the whole situation.

AFAIK, iiNet has bought out several ISP's, so you would think that they would 
be pretty familiar with the process by now.  Also, presumably the main 
'asset' an ISP has is their customer base.  If you peeve a significant amount 
of the customer base of the company you just bought and they leave to go 
elsewhere, then you have thrown away part of the asset you just bought.

Then again, perhaps iiNet figures that the money it saves by not bothering to 
do the transition well makes up for the lost revenue due to the loss of 
customers.  Who knows?

Anyway, I feel sorry for the Webone employees that either had to move to Perth 
or look for new jobs.
