Fibre optics are already being predicted as coming up to max capacity.

Some of us wouldn't mind just the 8 meg we are paying for before too much is spent on research for a fibre optic replacement!

Its all up and running in my area.
BT have flooded me with Infinity flyer
Up to 20 for the same price as I am paying for upto 8 with my current supplier.
What would the advantage be?

I'm still on Virgin's cheapest and lowest bandwidth deal as it's plenty enough for surfing and the small amount of music downloads that I do. Compared to dial up it's still lightning fast to me, so the current maximum bandwidth is quite superfluous for my needs.

I would love to see a better infrastructure country wide rather than just built up areas getting super-fast speeds, but financial returns dictate!

Liked and agree with the quote...

"We may all increasingly need to get used to the idea that bandwidth - just like water and energy - is a valuable commodity to be used wisely”
