Contact re: API service

I've tried filling out the form to get a sales person to contact us regarding purchasing data after the end of service for this API, and not a single person has contacted us or have I received confirmation from the web form that it was even received.  Has anyone been contacted by a sales rep with options?

Hi, Peter!

The form does not send a confirmation, but I can confirm that you are, indeed, there.

I can ask that your contact be expedited, if you like.

I was indeed contacted by IBM today, and I have to say it was quite worthless.  Small to medium sized business owners who cannot afford the minimum $4k/month to subscribe to this new "better" service is not really an alternative.  Incredibly frustrating that any feasible options for what I would presume is the majority of subscribers to the API are completely off the table, and of absolutely ZERO interest to IBM.  Steve Jobs was right about IBM...it is a monopoly and will continue to act as such.  Hopefully a real Wiki like community will arise out of the ashes of this idiotic decision and provide an actual feasible option.
