There's some poor maths going on in the article.
I think the author is assuming that 3dB means there is 2^3 times the power.
At least if you're "too close" to the exchange, you should already have reasonably speedy internet. Not like the 1.5mbps we get!
What is really misleading is telling you that your exchange will be activated on whatever date, then realising the cabinet your line is attached to will never be upgraded!
Re: Go Capitalism!
I suspect that Google pay for the following:
Train tickets, road tax, petrol duty.
Their electricity and gas bills.
Private health care for their employees.
Wages for said employees that are then taxed with Employees National Insurance, Employers National Insurance, Income Tax.
The employees then pay council tax for their "local services" and VAT on virtually everything they buy.
This all probably amounts to slightly more than bugger all.
Good for them.
I'm all for this.
The less money those 650 idiots in Parliament have to spend on bribing the electorate, the better.

Those were the days
I spent many hours playing 4th dimension games on this... E-Type, Saloon Cars, Nevron, Apocalypse, etc. Maybe you could do an Antique Code Show of these.
We had a word-processor, a paint program and a 9 pin dot-matrix printer. And an adapter that allowed you to use Amiga joysticks via the parallel port. And a handheld scanner!!
The best time came when my mum brought home a digital camera from school that used floppy disks!
Crikey, nostalgia o'clock.
E = MC^2 right?
So how about we convert the population of Stratford to energy?
100kg of overweight chav would provide a good boost to our supplies.
This is why I would never buy anything from BT
First Phorm, now this. Thieving bastas.
El Reg, bear in mind that Chris Grayling had nothing to do with the DWP in 2009/2010.
All this money was spent under the auspices of the Labour Government and we all know how expensive the Labour Propoganda Machine is!
