Mesh have been in the business a very long, long time indeed.  The problem is 
that the Support function in any business does not produce any revenue and is 
therefore seen by accountant types as a cost to the business.  Labour in 
western countries is expensive because it has more rights associated with it, 
the fewer the rights the cheaper the labour it is a fact of a globalised 
economy.   As a consequence with a certain size of business where the process 
can be rationalised into a sort of cookbook set of answers and solutions it is 
farmed out to those places where labour is cheaper (has fewer rights) and 
therefore costs less.  Whilst it is possible to some extent to circumvent a 
linguistic barrier in face to face contact of non-technical nature it is not so 
over a telephone line within a technical context especially where one end of 
the call has a more limited grasp of English, and the other end of the call 
(the user) a limited grasp of technicalities or for that matter even basic
