4th October 2010 – “CI-Net has been acquired by MDNX

I am writing to inform you that the shareholders of CI-Net have completed the sale of the entire issued share capital to MDNX Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of MDNX Group Limited).

Your services will continue to be provided as normal.”

3rd February 2011 -

“The Powerline equipment, including modems and the in-building wireless equipment including Zyxel wireless network points were provided on a sale only basis. Ci-Net had responsibility for installing the in-building gateways and undertaking the initial configuration and despatch of the end user powerline modems.

Further as mentioned in my letter of the 6th January, it is not possible to put support arrangements in place due to the Manufacturer’s withdrawal of the products.

Bearing in mind the above, MDNX will accept and action support calls relating to the RedKite equipment and backhaul infrastructure. Regretfully however we are unable to support issues arising from the in-building equipment, including end user connectivity.”
