They upgraded my cabinets, and then they phoned me asking about it. I
said no, on the reasonable-to-me grounds that this would cost me more
for a slower and less resilient service than my current bonded ADSL
lines -- but they wouldn't take no for an answer, and until I got my ISP
(A&A) to slap them around they were phoning me every flipping week,
sometimes at oh-so-helpful times like 6am, to see if I wanted BT
Infinity *this* week.

It seems they have no way of distinguishing the cases of 'we asked him
and he said no' and 'we didn't ask him'. Sigh.
