I really do not give a stuff....
....that the rest of the UK cannot get their promised 8 meg. I get 512k and had to argue with BT for 2 years to get it, apparently my exchange only holds 50 broadband connections. So, whilst they are busy updating some lines with all sorts of fancy trial gear, they seem to have completely overlooked my area of rural Scotland.
The even worse thing is, for those poor suckers in my area who are not one of the 50 lucky ones, there is no proper que system. Works like this:
You phone up for broadband and they say yes it's available in your area.
They book you in and give you a go live date some 2 weeks later.
In 2 weeks time you get a letter saying there are no available slots.
You phone back and they say. "We will phone you when there is an available slot"
3 months go by, no word. You phone them back and they say "sorry, we should have phoned you by now. I will deal with this personally and I assure you that we will phone you this time"
3 months go by, no word. You phone back and are given the same bollocks.
In the meantime 10 new people have moved into the area and 5 of them got lucky and got broadband.
You phone up and complain and they apologise and say there is nothing they can do to ensure you are next on the list.
You then have to phone up and order broadband every 2 weeks, wait for the letter saying it is not available and phone and order again. Eventually you get lucky.
Small bonus: I have 20 or so home hubs they sent me for each any every time i ordered broadband. 1 every 2 weeks. Ebay?
