Trying to get AOL Broadband

  Star5 22:44 02 Feb 2003


My brother has AOL dial up on a BT line and his os is XP. He lives in Dundee, Scotland and cannot get connected to AOL Broadband as this is done through BT and they say there is not enough interest in his area to update their exchange to broadband. BT do not show much interest in doing this soon and my brother is desperate to get broadband.

Does anyone have more info on this?

I have Blueyonder Broadband and love it but he has been with BT and AOL for years and I think a little to frightened to change. As it looks like he will not try any of the cable modems, will he have to wait for ever for BT?

That you very much Powerless for your useful info, I have now passed on this to my brother and he has now registered his interest.

Now all we have to do is wait on BT getting their finger out - hope that won't be too long.

Thank you again for your help!

Ask him to put pressure on BT.
