Sounds hopeful for some, will not get to me down here at the end of the earth for many years; ah well patience is a virtue.

I received an email from my ISP promising faster speeds in the near future......but yet again,my connection has slowed during the day to a mere crawl and I've ceased caring as my last ISP could only sort the problem for at most 24hrs before it returned to a crawl.Rural life is brilliant,as long as you dont wish for high speed internet.

I live in a minute town in deepest South Somerset but, surprisingly, Talk Talk have there LLU gear installed. I live less than 1/2KM from the exchange and get 18Mbps, reported by my router. I wonder how many years I will have to wait to see the same level of service offered by BT?

For there, read their.

So when BT do get around to introducing a 10 Mbytes service will I be able to benefit with what is a rather low powered computer?

Processor GenuineIntel Celerion~1296 Mhz
Total Physical Memory 256.00 MB
Hard drive is 20GB

Have you registered on the Virgin Site. This adds you to the list they told me.

peter99co Virgin wrote to me saying I was being upgraded to 10mb maybe 2 months ago. Mid May I phoned and was told it was being rolled out and all would be upgraded by the end of May.
Like jakimo I'm still waiting!!!
