CityFibre will just cherry pick the lucrative customers. Clue is in the name.... If you dont have Fibre available in your area, dont hold your breadth.

OfCom are a complete joke.
OfCom order BT to invest more, yet force them to slash prices. Contradictory demands. Left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.
Anyone wanting faster than 40Mb broadband most likely be paying through the nose and being billed for new network infrastructure then!
Football, Reality TV and soaps have the biggest budgets!
The BBC was not created to make populist entertainment, but this is essentially what most of its budget is now wasted on. The Biggest budget shows are:-
Match of the Day = £75 million a year to make,
EastEnders = £30 million a year to make,
The Voice = £25 million a year to make,
Casualty = £22 million a year to make,
Strictly Come Dancing = £10 million a year to make.
IE Nothing which couldnt be made by, or is not already catered by commercial channels.
Why are we being taxed to watch dancing celebrities?
Let iTV show premier football and make the mind-numbing talent shows! Stop wasting our tax money!
Re: Called it > obfuscation
No apology required. The judge states that he does not want Apple humiliated, just to publish the statement.
By putting all this extra nonsense about other courts, the UK courts decision is obfuscated.
I would hope that they made to remove the extra non-sense and have to statement sit on their front page for 12 months rather than 6.
Re: Have used...
They are a waste of time and fraud and best avoided because :-
1 . The biggest and best insurers are not on comparison sites. ( So you have to enter your data several times any way as per pre-internet days)
2. The cheapest quotes are not cheap; when you click through the price increases.
3. You get harassed by phone calls from India or where ever for days afterward trying to sell you insurance.
Never ever bought anything from one yet.
Re: Damn right
FWIW. Lovefilm and Netflix are U.S. companies, that pay no tax in the UK and the only jobs you will be creating is middle manager jobs in the US and exploitative ones in their Indian call centres.
If you are worried about creating jobs, then perhaps you should subscribe to SKY. British and at least their call centres are in the UK.
The Lord on Radio 4 this morning, saying that no one needed speeds of 100Mbit and that 2Mbit was all most people needed, sounded much like Bill Gates in the 1980s saying that computers would never need more than 640kb of memory.
Id like to think our (un)elected parliamentarians would have more vision.
Re: Its worse than that
Laws taking photos on private land and legal stuff on event tickets prohibiting photographs are long established precedents. Got bollocked for taking a picture in Sainsburys car park (not that long ago).
Some laws to protect honest and creative individuals yes, but if there is no system to check work for copyright, then not worth the paper it is written on.
Re: Note to Home Secretary
Yeah, am somewhat confused why this guy was not extradicted; as this seems to be the normal procedure these days.
perhaps it is because Gary was guessing military computer passwords rather than facebook passwords (which according to all accounts are just as weak) . So its a bit more naughty.
"internet TV" button
My Sony smart TV has an "internet TV" button on the remote. Thats quite easy to press.
Although i would say navigating content on the BBC iplayer can be a problem!
The other problem is the bandwidth it consumes. At approx 1Gb per hour watching BBC iplayer HD content it is very hungry and can cost if you are not on an unlimted deal
After a bad experience with an employer not honouring a perk offered verbally in an interview situation, i now tape any job interviews. I think that it is prudent to protect yourself from this nonsenese.
Any employer asking for passwords is a very bad sign. It is probably not worth taking the job.
