Broadband in the UK, why so bad?

I am so frustrated by BT's slow development of this service. Apparantly i live outside 6km of my exchange in Basingstoke and am unable to receive it. Does anyone else know of any other wireless or satelitte connection methods?

At the moment i have been living in the USA for the past 8 months and am returning to England in August. I was hoping BT might have BB working by then but dial up england still seems to be there! its so basic. Out here i have Bellsouth 100Mbps connection and am currently using a wireless connection of 54Mbps. Yet BT in England can;t even get me past dial up.

I use the internet alot and have to find an alternative to dial up. it will be torture going from 100Mbps to 56K.

haven't you Phil? I'm sure I just saw it in the Helproom.

Must be that fast American connection.
