Faster, faster. Slow.

Having recently been upgraded by NTL to a reasonable 3Mbps cable modem and enjoyed a hefty speed increase, we decided to sign up for one of those 8Mbps Bulldog ADSL accounts at the end of last week. After a week of waiting for the results of the line test, I got a phonecall from them tonight.

Unfortunately we’re too far from the BT exchange to be able to get a nice 8Mbps DSL line for less monthly rental than the NTL cable modem so I guess we’re stuck with NTL.
I can see that in a year or so, one of the selling points of a house will be how close to a BT exchange it is.
