    It will depend on the LLU firms (Easynet/UK Online, Bulldog, and
    any other smaller/newer ones, such as "Be") and the "demand" for
    their services. With Easynet, the expansion will now be under a
    rethink, perhaps, because BSkyB has taken it over, and they will
    perhaps push towards serving areas where cable is available...

    Until last year, the main push for Easynet had been to give SDSL
    to business users, so in some cases they might have had no spare
    capacity for residential users on UK Online anyway (someone made
    a post in December with a question about why Moorgate London had
    no capacity and my guess is that they had reserved it for firms,
    as SDSL costs 2000-3000 a year, far more than someone paying the
    basic 9.99 a month).

    With Bulldog, they already have expanded into some areas, but it
    may depend on population in the target area, or business numbers
    or some other criteria... Anyone been tracking their roll-out ?

    No, but I notice they have an availability checker and pre-registration
    form (the following gets you to the availability checker).

    Suggestion to the OP - why not contact the 'unbundlers' listed above
    and register your interest. Who knows, when they've done their
    unbundling they may even call you back (one lives in hope).

    OK, this is the stock answer to the LLU question in the same respect Zen is
    the stock answer to the ISP recommends question...

    ....BUT as posted on the front page of samknows it has been without updates
    for a very long time.

    I'm sure the site is excellent when it has been updated, but just be aware
    that it not always omnipotent and the font of all ADSL knowledge :)
