    One always sees a flaw in these darn polls after they've been up for a few hours. In this case I failed to distinguish between people who once held Totalise shares and people who held them at the bitter end.

    I assume that the person who ticked yes to having had Tot shares but no to claiming Tspeak shares was someone who sold up prior to the end. If not, then why not take your chances with Tspeak shares (which are basically free for the claiming).

    At worst it gives a chance to recoup one's losses.

    Cool Dude,

    The terms and conditions are here :-

    http://www.tspeak.com/shares01.shtml#9

    The t & c's state that

    ... if you support Tspeak by using its services your shares will convert in to shares that are entitled to attract a dividend (called Class B Ordinary shares). These entitle you to dividends if any are paid out.

    I don't see any limitation on which services (and I don't see any time limit for conversion, although there WAS a time limit, long past, for claiming C shares in the first place.)

    What's the cheapest or easiest way in? Maybe signing up for Tspeak telephone service?

    I'd check the eligibility requirements in advance, just to be sure.

    Xavenger? Any comments?

    cheers

    Brax

    Ways to convert from Class C to Class B

    An email will be going out to all Class C shareholders at some point in the next 48 hours listing the 5 *main* share conversion options currently available. Presently these are

    1. Join Tspeak to make savings on your own calls!
    2. Apply for a marbles Credit Card
    3. Use Tspeak Broadband for your Internet access
    4. Get a great new email address from Another.com
    5. Use our 0845 dial-up Internet access for 2 months

    Numbers 3 and 4 are very recent and number 5 is a brand new option, which I am getting ready to go at the moment.

    regards

    James @ Tspeak

    The email address looks like a good option - anyone can do that!

    I'm impressed with these latest developments from Tspeak. Looks like they have been getting their act together and a lot of hard work has been going on in the background.

    I wonder who are backing Tspeak for the float?

    Thanks xavenger.

    I know it wasn't clear, but when I said 'I wonder who is backing Tspeak for the float', what I meant was - 'I wonder who Tspeak have lined up to buy shares in the company at floatation'. Are there institutions interested or willing to buy a chunck of the company or are the public likely to stump up?

    Am I correct in thinking the floatation is designed to raise cash and expand the company?

    or is it a floatation by way of introduction - thus raising no additional monies?

    Interesting to see some of the proposed changes to OFEX recently - 4 market makers have applied to make a market which could mean competitve quotes and perhaps real-time internet-based share trading
