It would be impressive news, except for the fact that it's going to be at the end of 2006 (Over a year away, and DSL is already at 8mb right now), NTL are the absolute worst service provider in the country, and cable covers very little of the UK.
Still though, very little progress is still progress.
the cable in my area stops approximately 100ft away from my doorstep. Apparently there isnt enough demand for it to be upgraded, which in my opinion is wrong because at least 80% of the people in my area want it.
Once BT realised that, they at least allowed people to register interest in having their exchange enabled for DSL. Then a few years on, they have enough money to simply enable them all, regardless of interest.
NTL/Telewest should at least do the same in the way of surveying areas.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
