Broadband firms could face formal action if they fail to give consumers accurate information about the speed they will get when they sign up. The warning comes from Ofcom as it moves to ensure that net firms do not oversell broadband in advertising.
Customers should get specific data about the speed on their line or be able to back out of the deal.
The regulator said new guidelines on the selling of broadband should come into force early in 2008.

I think I'm begining to realise why redbull is still in business...
 
Carpo + News submissions = digital diahorrea. AKA keeping redbull in business.
 
Why? No-one wants you to stop :) I'm just bemused by your ability to find and post news faster than anyone else here :)
 
you said it was **** or im reading the context wrong :p
 
no in english its wonders :) i know you americans spell things funny like colour and color :p
 
I get lost easily if I wonder while I wander.

/off to lunch, and get lost...
 
Wander= Walk, roam aimlessly.
Wonder= Consider, think, muse.

Hrmm, sitting at a computer I don't think "wander" would be correct, "wonder" certainly seems to fit better in this context. It is this supreme level of intuition possessed by Carpo which holds him steadfast in his quest to find the best news the quickest.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
