What happened to the hopeful story?
Are the Germans not planning to buy BT anymore? Shame.

Are the Germans not planning to buy BT anymore? Shame.
" I am not in a position to confirm when infrastructure may be rolled out as not all infrastructure can be deployed at the same time." is the best BT can say about any future activity. It really is an OutRage
It is Microsoft's blatant dishonesty I do not like. Despite marking the unwanted "updates" as HIDE, they still try, and try again.
Transfer the responsibility to the TV Licence chaps and see how the job could/should be done. Just how many "warnings", with a straight face and no shame, do they issue before actually taking action?
That's about as close to Fibre as BT show any sign of introducing round here.
I would suggest that OFCOM require the upgrading of all Market 1 exchanges prior to granting any further enhancement plans concocted by BT or OutRage.
What was wrong with Outrage? That's normally what their staff call it round here. Of course, we only have Group 1 exchanges, you know, the ones with white mice running round wheels, costing so much to feed that we get slow speed and big prices.
That all customers will have First Class Service. Market 1 Exchange Class Service.
That verbiage is so similar to the drivel of politicians in the forthcoming election.
No mention in The Archers.
The new one is much better. The other one would not have missed any opportunity to see Uranus within that headline.
I typed my Post Code into the Digital Scotland Instant Checker to see how things stood. To no surprise at all, the reply was "No results found for that postcode". 'Twas ever thus.
The BT monopoly called Market 1 is still the sole choice of many.
Lollipop? It must be an iced lolly as it has melted away completely. That's despite my "newer" phone being second on the scheduled listing for update. First and last Motorola I will ever buy. I do not like giving money (sorry, my hard earned money as politicians insist on calling it) to Companies that promise something but do nothing.
Those who are stuck on Market 1 Exchanges have no choice. No competition allowed.
Ofcom smiles. Competition Authorities and Government bury heads in sand.
Some Scottish Councils have closed down all aspects of their Trading Standards Service.
Bell removed? Replaced by a neigh?
"upgrades". Capital Expenditure?
So long as BT are permitted a monopoly called "Market 1" exchanges, let us not even talk about progress. Is OFCOM even still awake?
Most grateful for your change in policy that now provides Meaningful Headers instead of the previous ones that were fit only for users of the app from GCHQ.
How goes the search for the organisation that can fine OFCOM for the quality of its service? Trading Standards sorted out my problems with 3, but they are ceasing to exist in more and more areas as costs are cut. Alternatives?
Is there any hope that changing the man at the helm will produce a burst of activity and perhaps even common sense such as has recently hit Microsoft? Or will we still be stuck with a "regulator" of DOS standard?
From the people who brought you WIN 8 and gambled the farm on it?
Absolutely Rock-all I should guess.
Don't bother. Just get the Register's sub-editors to write messages like the headlines. That'll keep everything secure and obscure.
All those phone Companies acting in concert. What was that definition of a Cartel again?
Not really affected by the looks of it. I'm in the UK, but not in England.
Meanwhile there is Market 1. Without any sign of improvement. Higher charges, worse service. Is that why BT shares were high enough to give the share-save employees a large payout - at customers' expense?
Cut from earlier post to say more than enough........"One day BT might start to think"
Not even worth complaining to them. That stuff simply whizzes around the Sheffield Hadron Collider... and round.......... and round.
I cannot stop laughing. You managed to get the phrase "Plusnet is working" into the report twice. Plusnet.......... the ISP that thinks underground cables go overhead.
She will help them keep water out of those damned street cabinets and let Outrage use them instead?
Sink the drunken sub-editor. He is way past it.
That came into existence under the Act of Union 1707. Independence will result in being "disunited". England can call itself anything it likes. Will also need to apply for membership of EU, NATO, and all the rest because the entity under which it took its place will cease to exist.
As so many people worldwide believe that "England" is the name for this entire country they will probably be able to get away without taking any action till someone notices.
There is no rUK whatever wishful thinkers might imagine. No UK at all at that stage. r or otherwise.
Good example of how to take a reasonable article and dumb it down.
Last I saw there was a steady spiral of fewer customers providing larger profits. Can't last much longer, can it? "The Power behind the Button" is fading.
Only applies to one of the old colonies. Should say so.
If that is news, keep a spare page for Three.
Hardly necessary. There are no en who don't believe that they are uk anyway.
Well that was such fun, boys and girls.
I'm having no vulgar stickers at my home.
My postman gives true quality service. Would he dare do other?
What Ofcom consultation? How well publicized was that?
........ usually just in time for the registration to expire. Worst part of Royal Mail service, by far.
OK, it might take a bit of understanding, but they did circulate a shiny leaflet explaining that this would present a great opportunity to employ more unproductive staff to maintain a huge database of names and addresses of people who like / dislike their neighbours. After all, it is not as if the don't have enough databases already. You do understand that if you have ever redirected mail or dared to go on holiday at any time you are stuck on one of their somewhat permanent lists, don't you?
The idea that anyone interested in their latest caper could pick up a sticker at a local Post Office......... too complex, mate.
Even Gareth Malone won't sort this lot.
Didn't he stop that crappy behaviour when his DNA could identify him from the calling card?
You will be OK with your Orange mast now, 'cos the person who told you that has now been grabbed to run Three "Customer Services".
I think Tesco have rather more to worry about.
JL reducing cookies by something like the same might be a step in the right direction. Like the shop, but those cookies...............
About 50 miles from any beach, but this is the norm around here. Three simply call it "Maintenance" once they realize that several phones and several dongles cannot all become defective and then also repair themselves at exactly the same time.
Anything but that damned music.
When it is BT it is an "outage" and a headline story. Three simply call it "Maintenance".
Brit. Telco. Blighty.
Is it really necessary to workaround the English language?
