    They would be better off getting broadband to everyone first... my grandparents still aren't serviceable by a broadband enabled line

    So disappointing.. the exchange next to mine is getting it!! If only I lived in a slightly different part of town...

    Ah well, I can only hope that the infrastructure required for this means there's a higher chance we'll get it sooner than later?

    Wooh! As a 512 kbps bb user I'm happy to see the really fast stuff staying where it belongs: far away from me.

    Re: News - BT names its next 69 super-fast broadband locations

    I'm quite disguisted by this really, my line currently won't go over around 150kbps. It's been excuse after excuse by BT, it was 2Mbps when we moved in but due to new housing and increased demand speeds have dropped. They're due to upgrade the line to allow everyone to get 2Mbps but not until 2012 now because their resources are "too stretched" to deal with the issue right now. To hear that they're laying down fiber to allow people speeds of "up to 100Mbps" is really quite infuriating...

    It'll be FTTC.

    FTTH is a distant wish, and they don't have the rest of the infrastructure to support the kind of speeds that would enable anyway.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    Thats true. If only it was FTTH [Looks into space dreaming]

    To be honest i think BT should be trying to make sure that all there bt wholesale is ADSL 2+ but if i had the fibre i'd be saying the oposite.

    and i suppose that doing fibre is better in the long run than doing a half-arsed approach.

    Cool - Greenwich is there.

    Hope BT dont insist on having to have a phone contract with them as well on the side to participate.

    Wtf "Swinton, Greater Manchester"

    First off Swintons in Salford and arguably a small area (pro/con) seems theyve done it to combat VM's dominance there rather than offer a better service, also i agree with others they should get atleast 2Mb to everyone first!
