In years to come, I shall tell my (as yet non-existent) kids that the moment my broadband speed became truly terrible was the moment that I received a letter from BT telling me that they were 'up-grading' my service and promising much faster speeds.
To those living in areas that can only dream of anything above 2 minute page loads, I apologise. But before the 'up-grade' I was getting between 5 and 8 meg download. Now I'm lucky to get 1meg and suddenly watching BBC IPlayer is an exercise in staccato speech.
Am now totally unconvinced by anything BT say and serious disputing whether 'superfast' next generation broadband isn't actually going to take us back to dial-up speeds.
