He knew how to sort out the BBC and about quality -- unlike the current lot.
For now I'm happy to be over 75 and tell BBC and Capita where to stick their license fee demands.
Money grabbing is now their National Sport.
"Notification in such cases is not mandatory under current UK data protection laws.
A spokeswoman at the ICO was not able to provide any guidance on the extent to which UK consumers were affected by the breach when we called."
Am I the only person who finds it strange for someone in San Fransisco to be writing detailed and potentially useful notes about the London Tube?
Re: Main use of cryptocurrencies...
Did they happen to mention the new Burger King WhopperCoin?
Last I heard it was supposedly to be tested on the Northern M6 in 2016.
Where's it been?
Don't like them. Don't use them. Don't use .uk registrations.
Re: Out of India?
From personal experience the Philppines staff were unusual for Virgin Media in that they alone knew what they were doing and actually did it.
20,000 updates a day.
Bought two copies of an Ordnance Survey map last year, one standard version, the other waterproof.
According to notes in the Customer Information Section printed in both maps it had not been revised for 10 years, but was copyright dated the previous year.
Not a happy bunny. Not rushing to buy again.
Easy enough Solution
Get a Granny or Grandad of 75 or over. Sit back. Watch BBC (if you really like crap) and laugh at the stupid law.
says it all
"A letter from executive sales director Neil Bartholomew, seen by The Register, said: "Customers trust Virgin Media "
Common abbreviation for I Care Zero.
Examples to the contrary, anyone?
Not breach of OFCOM rules?
If Three did not breach OFCOM rules then what right in law does OFCOM have to impose a penalty?

Re: small city
Seen the signs at the entries to Milton Keynes? Been there since it was a new town.
The pint that thinks its a quart. The New Town that insists it is a City.
Probably no more than a hangover from the British Rail philosophy of charging what the traffic will bear.
One question to decide whether it i has any merit at all. Will end users have the ability, at last, to contact OpenReach to get answers?
Who's in charge?
Because they consider themselves to be "Authorities", rather than Councils to be voted in (and out) by citizens, Councils seem to believe they can do whatever they wish.
Note that the article switches cheerfully between those same descriptions.
Do we vote for Authorities? Since when?
Re: Stupid dick.
Purely for the record, this article concerns Jonathan Neil Mendelsohn, Lord Mendelsohn and not some of the other Lords people are thinking of.
Snide Comment from Spokesman
For those words alone the fine should at the very least be doubled.
Re: Trust us
SPED UP? Really?
re Auto report
So long as our phone companies make money from delivering nuisance calls what incentive is there for them to take action against them? Surely a decent Regulator would have the ability to stop that?
Page does absolutely nothing.
Very realistic. Very like OFCOM. Text but zero for information.l
Does the Information Commissioner have a phone at home or a mobile in his pocket. If he does why does he sit waiting for reports? Then take the length of time equal to having a baby before acting. Or is he the only person in the UK who NEVER gets nuisance calls? While the rest of us are TPS registered AND use call-blockers and still get the calls.
I'm looking for a gentle undemanding night-watchman type of job. So when does he retire?
Re: This will be widely ignored ....
Of course that is so true. Exactly as the UK Authorities act so efficiently to stop or prevent Nuisance calls being made through apparently UK phone numbers from which considerable money is made by UK people leasing them out. Aye! Right!
You expect EPOS Users to know where else to contact?
I understood most of it.
Then I saw the magic words "RBS England".
Do we care really care
who is in charge at Openretch as they are not available to customer communication at any level?
A small overlooked point
There is no British law, is there? There is Scots law. There is English law. Each different in definitions of admissibility. Should we start this debate again from the beginning?
Re: Update speed
Both those WileyFox handsets use Cyanogen OS
Look, It's all very simple
Ensure that all BT Executives, Directors and the like are limited to the minimum quality of service provided by their Company, including of all their noms de plumes such as Openreach, Plus.net, etc.
Ensure that all BT offices are provided only with that same limited service.
Once they all enjoy those reductio as absurdum levels, watch them run.
I've only just noticed that EE is a subsidiary of BT Group. Might as well throw their quality of service into the mix too.
Hown many homes?
26,473,000 in 2011 according to Wikipedia. How much further forward does that take us?
I'm still celebrating
The arrival of ADSL2+ twelve days ago. And you are concerned about a reduction from 44 to 33 whatsits?
Clarification or Correction, please
NHS England speaking for ALL NHS, or just his little bit of the UK? How quickly they forget begging us to stay!
What happened to the hopeful story?
Are the Germans not planning to buy BT anymore? Shame.
Re: It's a numbers racket
" 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
Re: I started to hate Windows 10...
It is Microsoft's blatant dishonesty I do not like. Despite marking the unwanted "updates" as HIDE, they still try, and try again.
Oh No They're not
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.
Re: Come the revolution...
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.
The BT Guarantee
That all customers will have First Class Service. Market 1 Exchange Class Service.
Re: Why bother upgrading from Windows 7?
That verbiage is so similar to the drivel of politicians in the forthcoming election.
Cannot be that important
No mention in The Archers.
Has sub-ed been fired?
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.
White mice running round a wheel
The BT monopoly called Market 1 is still the sole choice of many.
"Upgrades only available on newer phone"
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.
Sticking with the incumbent.
Those who are stuck on Market 1 Exchanges have no choice. No competition allowed.
Ofcom smiles. Competition Authorities and Government bury heads in sand.
