      I'm hoping that, if I don't get the phone call for the trial, there will be some special promotions on to launch it, which may be just as good as the offers they're doing for current trialists. At least .. that's what I'm telling myself

      The problem is, although I've signed at least twice for the trial (the most recent site, and the previous one), I'm not 100% sure if I signed in my name or my hubbies. Which may confuse them and their selection process, as the account is in his name.

      Thats one of the main reasons why im hoping to receive a phone call before the official roll out of SBUF, so as to hopefully save on the installation fees/router costs etc, if they were to put these in place on day one of release date! Here's to hoping they have a heart though eh?

      I also dont mind the 50 fee as it is still overall a very good package! however, with the girlfriends 21st birthday coming up in the next couple of weeks i will be suprised if she is kind enough to leave me with 50 spare! so having the fee waived would probably help. lol

      I get offers from virgin every week asking me to take their super doooper fibre optic broadband, but they are too tight to pay for a feed to my house.. well the 52 new houses on my street even though their cabinet is right as you turn into the street. They say go online and ask Richard... well I wanna ask Richard why he sends me junk mail when they won't supply hmmmmmm

      Anyway I think I believe in better, and for 20 I can wait another few weeks!

      Do we know for sure it'll be the start of April or just sometime in April at the moment?

      Just 'sometime' in April for now.

      April 1st is a Sunday this year, so it could well be 2nd or 3rd. Famously Rolls Royce was first started on 1st April.
