Ex Cooperative Members Where are they Now
This is an attempt to set up a link page for all the Ex Poptel Members What was Poptel you ask?
Poptel was a partner in the Manchester Host and became known as provider of Internet services to the Labour Party (UK). Working with the National Cooperative Business Association of the US, it launched the successful bid to create a top level Internet domain for use exclusively by cooperatives – “.coop” .
Due to a few external issues delays by ICANN over the .coop project being a major one Poptel was “demutualised” and broken up into smaller businesses in September 2002. Staff from the web design department formed a new co-operative (Poptech), and OSG Co-op (now Midcounties Co-operative) took over the .coop registry operation.
