    It's a bit general. Considering that Droitwich Spa was shown to be one of the SLOWEST broadband speeds in the UK, it appears to be all rosy according to this....

    Good to see that the information is slowly making it's way into the public arena. Be nice to see this sort of thing linked with upmystreet type information....

    Finally County Durham has been noticed and it shows pink in most of the area. Wonder if this info will be used to sort the broadband out in the areas that are suffering

    Thinkbroadband also has a pretty cool map, a bit more specific with more options to enable/disable.

    The "Notspot" and "Exchange Locations" options are very useful. It's good to know where your exchange is, even better to know the proximity to an exchange a potential property you are after is.
