    Only in Tunbridge Wells... :D

    Could they make such a fuss against high speed broadband coming to town

    PLANS for super-fast broadband in Tunbridge Wells could lead to a controversial rise in unwanted street clutter.

    Wish there was a danger of it making to us...we don't live that far away!

    Tonbridge will be ages I expect and then they'll do the main roads and leave out the smaller ones, like they did when laying cable TV

    Oh for goodness sake. May as well get rid of all signs and lamposts as well then, cluttering up the streets

    Also "BT hopes to complete them by 2011, when speeds of 40 megabytes per second will be guaranteed. Average speeds in the UK are currently just 5.2 megabytes per second."
    Cmon this is 2010..you would think someone would have known the correct term and spotted it before printing

    I know a good amount of people here that would dig the trenches themselves if it meant getting fibre to the home any quicker.

    I would most certainly give the a hand! I'd dig the trench from the "main" road to my house (1/2mile!) if it meant decent broadband speeds! My speed at home is laughable!

    Do they not realise how privileged they are to have this? If they don't want it, fine... send the BT engineers up to Bishop Auckland so they can furnish us with some fibre

    Wait your turn Webman you have Newcastle just round the corner so I think I'm first, we officially have string for phonelines still in rural Yorkshire

    I must admit I've seen a few of these kinds of things about "street clutter" its a fact of life we've burried so much under them there ain't the room anymore its simples, there will have to be some clutter but if it boosts and improves things we can grow to live with it I'm sure
