I hear all this talk about 4&8Mb connections being rolled out all over the country in the near future.

When my exchange eventually meets the capability to run at such a speed - will i get upgraded for free? or am i dreaming here?

Out of curiosity, is upgrading exchanges to supply 8Mbps connections a 'big job' so to speak or does someone just need to flick a switch somewhere? i live in a small town and we only got broadband a little less than 12 months ago so if it is a job where an BT engineer needs to work on an exchange then i would imagine i won't see any difference in speed for a few years judging by how BT go about their working days so bragging about 8Mbps connections might just fray on ones nerves.

spiltrice,

I think the exchanges have to be upgraded first before hand, although if your's has recently been installed, chances are they may have installed everything ready.
