      My mate was banging on about the 60Mbit upgrade they are getting with VM, i said that will be usefull when everything you have connects via wireless g connections.

      Bane of my life better pings, thanks to lag compensation MW3 on the PS3 is unplayable. Fast pings mean you are at a serious disadvantage as the game attempts to ballance it all out and fails miserably leaving you with an unplayable game.

      Nice if you can get it. For many (inc myself) cable is not available and FTTC has only just become available. In fact Sky's fibre news has broken one month after Infinity became available here, I'm still inside a 12 month contract with Sky so it is all good, just a bit later than some other lucky people have been getting fibre access.

      is there any way of finding out where 14 is because there is a cabinet 50yds over the road and that hasnt been done
      Yes P14 will be the current bt green cab that supplies lines to those post codes, usually they have the numbers printed on them unless its worn off, if theres 1 right by you then its probably the 1 in question but unfortunately the only way to know is to walk around looking for the cabs.

      what phase does it list for the cab, it apears they are up to phase 6 so far with 7 8 & 9 still to do this year, remember when a cab is listed in that document as 'Yes' in the Deployed column that just means the cab is included in that phase of the roll out not that its already been deployed and that the plans are preliminary and subject to changes/alterations since that document was leaked.

      hmm thats interesting, i wonder if that cab is on the same exchange as yours or from a dif 1, if you could find out a post code and cab number for that would be interesting to see what phase it is listed under.
      Theres 3 exchanges in my town, 2 of them (inc mine) are in phase 8a and have RFS dates for June but the other 1 is under phase 6b in that document but originally had an RFS date of Dec last year but is now expected March this year so it may have changed phase since then maybe.
