      All well and good saying 'Yeah' and 'Long over due' etc etc but you cannot seriously think for one minute that this is actually going to change anything in the short to mid-term? Is everyone going to wake up tomorrow with ultrafast broadband? er no not at all!

      For all that I hate BT, that was a good campaign all the way back to the 70s. Was the Post Office then and before privatisation.
