Sadly they are not that great unless you live in big towns or cities.

I was very shocked that when BT started rolling out Infinity, where were
the areas they first hit? Those where the were already cable providers
proving greater speed.

Eventually the government hand them loads of cash (yes the BT "investment"
is coming out of our pockets even for the FTTC), under the rural broadband
scheme, yet my current exchange isnt even 21CN enabled, something I believe
they were required to do for all exchanges by the end of last year.

Not something I would really call good.
