No, not in a million years. It's like asking people if you would buy or rent a house without electricity, IMHO.

The same goes for Freeview signal with all 6 Muxes, and full satellite coverage (don't want any nasty trees to the south blocking the signal that turn out to be protected by ridiculous preservation orders, or are in neighbour's gardens etc.)

It's not really the same though is it?

As far as tv goes, again is it really that important, anything decent you can just get on catchup. Oh, wait..... :huh:

According to the BT line checker gives that property an speed estimate of between 0.75mb and 2.5mb. Maybe that property is on a shared line and there's no spare capacity, though I'd doubt it.

"THE BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER

For Postcode CT4 6LN

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial check on your postcode indicates that it is VERY UNLIKELY you will be able to receive fixed 512Kbps or 256Kbps broadband service due to the very long length of your telephone line."

This is the best website for checking availability imho http://www.samknows.com/broadband/broadband_availability

I work from home as a Software Developer and wanted to move to the country... in North Yorkshire... as people have said it varies from village to village (and from one side of a village to another. I spent a lot of time on that site! No chance of 3G for me here, and a little further in to the Dales there's still no mobile signal at all!

One place I lived I tried satellite (in the days before the village I was living in was connected to broadband, so a few years ago now) but the latency was pretty terrible.

I used sat broadband for a couple of years and the latency is the killer. It had about 5mb download but every single request takes 2 seconds at least to get a response. That doesn't sound bad but every image on a page is separate request. The modems are a bit clever and download everything they can at once and some sites are serving gzipped sites but generally I would say only use if you really really have to. If asked over a beer I would simply reply that it's s#it

Besides, how much porn do you really need?

More than half the world's commerce in major countries in terms of major transactions (let's say over 100 pounds) now takes place on the internet, and no I don't have stats but it's obvious to anyone with a brain.

I'm glad you think it's just for porn, it's a common misconception amongst British people which leaves more oppurtunities for those who know how to do business on the internet.
