I live in an ordinary house in Milton Keynes, and City Fibre put the network in about 18 months ago, I have a large range of providers to choose from, but on 2 can be a***d, to send me junk mail.

I'm fed up with stuff that is wider/deeper that a standard UK plug top, I completely p****d off with wall warts that spew cables in every direction, or ones that resemble a Transformer™, and have be pulled, tugged or whatever to get the pins in what passes for the right pattern.
