Worst Company UK Round 14: 3 vs PayPal and Setanta vs Dixons
Virgin Media and Tiscali Carphone Warehouse beat BT and Natwest moving themselves into the semi-finals.
Update 30/12/08: Due to technical errors with Polldaddy's automatica poll closing system over the holidays, the results of this poll has been amended as of 2:53 on 30/12/08.
At the initial vote count past midnight on 29/12, Natwest led by 64 votes over Tiscali. However, Polldaddy's poll system failed to close automatically as scheduled over the holidays, resulting in some confusion of the end results.
Due to a large number of new votes since, Tiscali has beat Natwest with 1007 votes over 806 votes.
Polldaddy does not have any in-built timestamp functions to capture actual results at the time when Polldaddy was supposed to close the polls, nor do we have any screenshots at the time of vote count. Therefore, we feel that it is only fair to those of you who put in your votes to go by the evidential end result seen here at the close of the poll.
And as CPW beat Tiscali previously by a whooping 2138 votes vs 1790, CPW has now been amended as the winner to enter the semi-finals to face off Virgin Media.
On Polldaddy's behalf, we apologise again for this error.
Also, please remember: polls will now be manually reviewed and closed at midnight as mentioned previously in Round 1, so make sure you vote soon to give your favourite company a fighting chance to enter the finals!
Today, it's 3 vs Paypal and Setanta vs Dixons. So who is it going to be?
This should be a great fight. Happy voting!
