Yes, DTAG "informed" users by doing it sort of the "right" way: They 
actively terminated their old non-VoIP contracts. So they send 
non-technical users a letter that they are unfortunately forced to 
terminate 10+ year old contracts (some of them being on the very 
expensive side for little service). All other players in the space 
obviously do not want their users to gain a special right to termination 
of their contracts because then they might move somewhere else.

Kind regards
