Re: Yet more claptrap

Anyone on a Direct Exchange line is srewed. BT would need to re-cable/fire to your individual property (in a lot of cases - such an mine) and they couldn;t be arsed to do that if you also have no competition to take your business to.

BT/Openreach should be PAYING for my custom UNTIL they provide >10MBs (OfCom's own estimate of minimim viable speed required to partake in modern economy) OR there is an alternative provider willing to deliver.

As it is I have ONE choice - £29 per month for an at-best 0.5MB download. No planned update. No alternatives possible.

I do get FREE access to sky sports though (minimum 2Mb required). Gggrrrr.

EASYMONEY. NO INCENTIVE.
