I cant wait to get off - but bethere has so far given me the best
possible speeds on my line ( 2.5mbps on their adsl2+ ) BT claim a max
speed of 2mbps. the local exchange is Accepting Orders on fttc, but the
cabinet we are on, isnt even in the plan for an upgrade.

where are those internet service drones going to be flying ??
