I wonder just how many people will be affected by this 'upgrade', and how many will not?.
Nearly every month I receive marketing mail from BT about returning back to their fold, and I also receive the same amount of marketing mail from Virgin regarding their fibre-optic speeds and services.
With my present ISP, I suppose to be on a 'upto' 20MB package, but due to the present old BT infrastructure, I can only receive about 25% of what I supposedly should perhaps receive?.
I recall the days of dial-up, when we were told that speeds at the very lower end, was the only thing that the services could supply, but of cause, broadband as improved considerably since those dark slow days. Perhaps the government promises of higher speeds, and everyone 'will have' access to broadband, is not far off the horizon for at least some in the not to distant future?.
