Re: [LUG] Fwd: UK 'misled' on broadband speeds

The phrase 'tell me something I don't know' springs to mind.  The real question is how many of these identical reports are we going to see before they actually DO something about this?  In any other industry, e.g. gas/electric suppliers the company(ies) would have been fined for misselling their products months, if not years ago.


People shouldn't be tied down to long contracts.  It's a ridiculous system with no benefit whatsoever for the consumer.  People should stay because they like the service, not because they have to.
