In essence, as a customer, you are left with one statement:

  If you move to NT you will lose us as customers.

Whether that is effective or not is another matter.

At this point I'm reminded of a story of a friend of a friend who,
shortly after signing a three year lease on an apartment, was told
the owner of the apartment wanted it back so they could move in.
His reply, literally:

  "Stick 'em up!  This is going to cost you..."

Simple and to the point.
