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.


Many western European countries do much better than us for their broadband, it seems. Especially France. Why? Simple, their national phone system is not run by a private company with shareholders.
