BT provide the local wires, sure, but you buy ADSL though an ISP, who provide
access to "the rest" of the inertnet after you've gone through BT's ATM.
Exactly how far north are you? Can you see the oil rigs?
I'm in Manchester, and Easynet have an office in the University Science Park,
so they're within easy larting distance (it's not been necessary, so far).
Much as I would like to, I don't see a north-south divide for ADSL.
Let's not forget that the Catholic Church's most fundamental objection was not
to the heliocentric theory but to the challenge to it's God-given authority...
