      I would like to think by the time we get to 2013/2014 we are looking at FTTH/P never mind FTTC

      FTTP/H would be great but FTTC is sufficient for my needs...for now

      BE have given up obviously. They were great years ago, but very specialised supplier, but you paid through the nose.

      Obviously they cannot do the maths to make it work and have chosen to leave it alone.

      It would be absolutely pointless them spending x amount to make a network, that is just not going to have any customers.

      Such a shame as I was on BE before switching to Sky and they were probably the best ISP I have ever used!!!
