UK vents spleen at broadband frustrations

Quote
Firing up fat pipes is inducing anger in many UK broadband customers, according to a survey commissioned by O2 Broadband.

More than half (56 percent) of Britons polled admitted broadband issues have made them lose their temper with their hardware.
Broadband consumers in Cardiff are the most likely to become angered, according to the survey, while users in Bristol are the most dissatisfied with their service. Nearly a quarter of users there said they plan to switch broadband providers in the next three to six months.

The survey also found the most technology-savvy broadband consumers live in Brighton,
while Sheffield dwellers are statistically most likely to need help setting up or managing their service.

yeah but all the it instructor has to say all day is "turn it off and turn it on again". Mind you the binman gets some fresh air though.

That IT Instructor will spend all their time showing people how to use Google Maps, so they can look at their house.
