BT continues to dick me around

YOU WON’T be surprised to hear that British Telecoms, otherwise known as BT, continues to mess around with my connection here in Oxford.

I was told that I’d get 5Mbps and the Summertown exchange is just a short distance away, but BT appears to be rationing everything.

For a premium service, it’s inferior. Eventually, like every Brit, I’ll lose my patience and phone the BT press office. I was kind of hoping that BT was threatened with some intelligence. Apparently not. I have almost lost my patience. ♦

BT’s latest iniquity emerges

I WAS WAITING in for the gas man today – the gas man did not cometh – but a special delivery tipped up through the post.

It was a special delivery from British Telecom, that firm has decided I need very special advice to set up my BT Broadband in Oxford.

Sorry, not a very good sunset tonight in Oxford for my loyal one  reader, Doctor Drashek.
