      Perhaps if you went on a by-pass machine and arranged for a couple of liver transplants you might just manage it.

      Just checked availability and both Margate and Ramsgate which had the same activation date (010612) as Broadstairs are now accepting orders.
      Broadstairs is 'coming soon'. So maybe a day or two?

      Can't wait to put in my order.

      Err, if you are 200 metres from the exchange, does that not mean you aren't behind a cabinet, thus cannot order FTTC?

      Openreach When and where map lists Foxhall as Accepting Orders

      I am drooling at the thought of it.


      I can remember the days when a 300 baud modem that you placed the phone handset in was the norm!

      Before the internet, you had to dial up each individual bulletin board you wanted to access.
