None of those places are even in the county where I live.Looks like all we're suitable for is housing the worlds biggest nuclear dustbin. :-(

...and I was hoping the Isle of Wight would be top of their list!

Im so pleased I dont have BT.

Long live my 10MB connection with NTL! Seeing as I am the only one in the area who is online, I have a whole hub to myself, so have no problems with speed. Its always turbo charged.

Also with cable, it doesnt matter how far away from an exchange you are.

I note that SIX of the places listed are here in Cornwall. Still, it's nothing more than you'd expect for the righteous. :o)) And that's from a Yorkshireman exiled here these many years! TC.

Well as a Cornishman in Cumbria its a little annoying that BT have discovered the world does not end at Devon!
