Sadly not.  Swindon seems to be last on the list for most things.  I'm
just thankful that I'm in an area that gets broadband!  Two people at
work recently moved to North Swindon to find that there was no broadband
there in the _newly built_ area!  I think they have got it now, but it's
crazy really.

I'll give freeview a miss for now I think.  I might have another go with
the ariel in the loft, but it sounds like I'd need a big pole on top of
the house, and I'd have to get someone else to install that, which
wouldn't be cheap.  I get most channels that I want, just not in great
quality!  Hopefully the freesat offering will eventually bring C4, Five,
and some others to FTA satellite.

I might investigate the cable route at some point as well.
