Dragging Pauline in to the 21st Century

Nice fast BT engineer, 17 minutes down time, and changed from 3Mb/s to 80Mb/s at Pauline's house.

"Is that good?" she asked.

This FTTC is pretty good really.

That said, we have a 330Mb/s customer on line today (FTTP) which is just getting silly.

    Wow.. That's all I can say...

    1. I know - crazy isn't it. This is one customer as a trail and they know there will be times when there is not going to be 330Mb/s spare capacity. To allow that spare capacity would cost us (in BT costs alone) £16,000 a month.
