Would vbe glad to see a connection fast enough to use YouTube with out buffering.

I live in the centre of Town and get about 15% of the advertised speed, God knows what speeds those who live Up-country are getting.

Didn't Tony Blair state that 'all' homes throughout the UK, would have super-speed broadband when he was in power?.

How many years ago is that, and how many people are still struggling to achieve anywhere near the speeds the ISP's are advertising?.

Anyone else getting a 404 error when trying to access the poll?

FM - thanks.

In my very rural area distance from the exchange seems to have little relevance. I am 3 miles and get 2.5Mb on a good day, a friend who lives in a village 1.5 miles is lucky to get 0.3Mb which is typical for all the homes.

We are not on any upgrade list currently released by BT and doubt we ever will be.

This seems to come up whenever a politician is looking for a bit of cheap publicity, and has done so for the last five years or so.

It's all pie in the sky - for all their posturing I can still only listen to uninterrupted radio at certain times on a good day, and cannot watch streamed video.

It appears to me, to be a Government ad....to fool you into parting with your hard-earned cash. I still use dial-up...and I ain't gonna change.

Another way to find the poll is PCA home page bottom right (long scroll down).
