After all the fiasco/scams/frustrations, I think that Cyberwings has benefitted many higher paid web hosting companied because now a lot of people would be more likely to pay a little extra cash to get a more reliable host.
More cash out from consumers.
They may make people more cautious and more willing to pay for quality service. However.....two problems
First, much of their market is still looking for something for nothing hosting.
Second, none of us benefit from black marks on our industry. Unfortunately, while many of us are professional and provide quality service, events such as these damage us all. They make our potential customers scared and suspicious of any and all. While we may individually benefit, in the long run, we are all harmed by association.
I noticed an increase in sales as well. Though I think we lost quite a few customers to them when they started due to their low and "one time for lifetime hosting" plans.

i dont' think that it really matters, over-all. with all the recent huge corporate scandals, the cyberwings one was fairly minor. i think a lot of people figured out pretty fast that cyberwings wasn't representitive of the industry, and people don't expect every hosting company to have a big scandal.
