I've seen no mention, apart from in Latest News on the right, about the new minimum of 28.8Kbps which telecom providers have to supply, as from yesterday. The old minimum was 2.4Kbps! For the first time, those affected by DACS slowing their connection speeds can demand its removal.

I should get in quick, though! Once the word spreads to the masses, BT and Kingston are going to be swamped!

I remenber a few years ago when I moved into a new house that it had a DACS system inatalled and I could only connect at 28k. I phoned BT to get it removed and they said that they would not remove the it for free as it "wasn't broken". I said "Give me two minutes and I call you back and it will be broken". An engineer came round the next day and removed it for nothing.

Confab: "Give me two minutes and I call you back and it will be broken". LOL.
