    Their view is that people signing up for 512k would know what a newsgroup was.
    Personally I think they have it completely wrong, since usenet was used long
    before broadband became generally available and the (older?) users may not be
    interested in the video/flashy stuff that BY promotes.

    Whatever they think, it's intentionally meant to deceive.
    They know what they're writin.
    It's like "Access to online gaming" for 1MB, and "Free access to online
    gaming" for 2MB/4MB.

    They want 50 quid a month for 4mb/384k
    They must be mad - in every country the internet is expanding by some 20%
    per annum and they can't be bothered to keep up with the investment
    and still charge high prices? Prices are falling - they should be supplying
    4mb/384 now for 20 quid or less and focus on upgrading their
    infrastructure before more knowlegeable telcos and LLU driven
    telcos **** them up rolling out 100Mbit sdsl which they
    have already started doing.

    They can't do that - many of them are showing foolish pricing
    tendencies. Sure you can cut down to 10p a month, but to
    stay profitable you need to invoice something in the region
    of 20 quid a month. Based on that, you should then
    provide the highest bandwidth and highest quality service
    that that money should be able to provide based on international
    price comparisons.
