      I like that :) I am currently on 100mbps so looks like I will soon be at 120mbps. They never fail to keep customers happy :) there will be alot of happy people when they see they are going to receive new hardware for free :)

      Excellent news!

      Just a shame the full roll-out isn't scheduled to finish mid 2013. We tend to be fairly low down on the food chain when it comes to upgrades unfortunately.

      Wow that is a long time, didn't realise it took that long to roll it out saying that though they do have to roll it out to alot of people so that does explain it. I hope it comes to you sooner than 2013 :)

      Believe it or not Birmingham despite it's size always seems to be 1 of the last to get upgrades.

      Not too much of a wait for you then APS :) I haven't checked mine yet on the website to see when it gets rolled out in my area. Will have to do so :)
