BBC News and Broadband

It's been on the BBC news again this evening.

I was quoted 8Mb speed and I'm only getting 1.5Mb.

Broadband Providers have to get their act together and provide what they offer or be more realistic about what they offer.

Point them at BT as the infrastructure provider.
Aren't they blaming the Petrol stations for the shortage of oil!

No one ever seems to point out that switching ISP is unlikely to make very much differences to the raw line speed.

These people are never bothered about technicalities such as distance from exchange, exchange congestion and line quality.
Not to mention the various problems that can occur on the customer's premises.
To them it's all black and white.
The ad said 8Mb and I'm not getting what I paid for...end of story.
